There's no doubt about it, the Web3 gaming world represents an exciting revolution that merges blockchain technology with the video game industry. But everything is still far from perfect, which is only to be expected when you look at the age of this emerging sector.
It's important to note that Web3 gaming start-ups are still rare in having the experience of traditional game developers. This underlines the need for collaboration between the two worlds to ensure the success of this new era of gaming. For the future of Web3 video games seems closely linked to its adoption by the giants of the industry, such as Ubisoft.
However, certain "pure players" are emerging and are the only ones with the ability to explore the use of blockchain in depth, whether vis-à-vis open worlds or on the opportunity to develop 100% of an on-chain game.
It is also essential to remember that, beyond technology and innovation, the main mission of video games is to provide entertainment. This mission must remain at the heart of every creation, whether blockchain-related or not. Playing must remain a pleasure!
Finally, it should be noted that France has taken a leading position in the development of the regulatory framework surrounding Web3 games. This initiative demonstrates the country's commitment to fostering a safe and secure environment for players, while encouraging innovation in this promising field. It remains to be seen whether this will be borne out in practice, as many gaming players reject being equated with gambling.
