13 NFT games to watch in 2022
Call it GameFi, Play-to-Earn or NFT games, a new generation of games is emerging, riding the tidal wave created by the success of pioneering games like Axie Infinity. In 2021, Axie has gone from virtually zero to 2.3 million active players per day by the end of the year. In the same one-year period, Axie Infinity’s AXS token saw its market value increase from $ 0.57 per token a year ago to $ 97 at the time of writing a year later, i.e. an appreciation of 170 times in a year.
However, with Axie being the star kid of the emerging NFT gaming market, there are a number of games that game enthusiasts and investors alike should watch out for. According to Swedish YouTuber and NFT gaming expert Anders BjÃ¶rk, these are 13 NFT game projects, on various platforms like Ethereum and WAX, to follow and of course to play during the coming year.
âI have this vision of fully functioning game economies where people only make a living from playing these games, having fun and living in this virtual world. I think we are getting closer to a reality. where normal people can play games for a living. It’s going to change the world, in ways no one can imagine, “says Anders BjÃ¶rk.
According to BjÃ¶rk, all of the games in the list below are developed by teams with a strong track record and / or extensive experience in the gaming industry. The list is divided into three game categories: fully playable games, alpha and beta versions and upcoming games.
