Indeed, gaming is an ever-changing market, incorporating new themes, technologies, and ideas for heightened user experience. Gaming has seen these throughout its history as developers constantly look for what can attract more players. Any gamer would admit these claims.
Meanwhile, some ideas and approaches quickly retire while others stick. The 2000s poker boom triggered an increase in online poker platforms, and many have remained popular (to date). Meanwhile, platforms such as the Gizmondo (GPS-enabled) flopped as they failed to deliver their immense promises.
Metaverse is one of the latest technology and idea to join the gaming world. It has seen increased traction from almost everyone within the blockchain market, and leading firms such as Meta, Microsoft, and Sony have promised Metaverse products and services in the pipeline. However, can the Metaverse define gaming in the future? Moreover, how will it revolutionize the sector?
The most lucrative games would open up to entice you in all possible ways. That can mean immersing players with their storyline, ultra-HD graphics, and functionality. Nevertheless, even the most captivating video game remains accessible via 2-D screens like TV, smartphone, monitor, or computer. They could be gripping and thrilling, but you remain a spectator enjoying from the outside.
The Metaverse might revolutionize that. Virtual reality allows players to join the game and enjoy a 360-degree experience. While users can enjoy this with VR games, current options remain limited due to the small game collection with such offerings.
A Hypnotic Home from Home
Gaming in the Metaverse would exceed the 360-degree experience. This hypnotic space would allow individuals to create digital worlds that they can decorate to match their style. Moreover, gamers can show off trinkets and trophies earned from gaming winnings.
The Metaverse space would be the whole gaming scene, where players can select what to game, chat with teammates and friends, and even buy new titles. That is what most entities joining the Metaverse craze promise, though they remain far from delivering.
Do Gamers Need This?
Though leading gaming firms are building Metaverse projects and products (for instance, Meta), it does not mean online gamers necessarily want to migrate to the promised virtual utopia. Meta’s Reality Labs can confirm this after losing a whopping $2.8B in 2022 Q2. Nevertheless, proponents would still explain that the Metaverse is a long-term deal and returns might take time.
Nevertheless, the Metaverse might flourish once it incorporates NFT collectibles. However, few gamers appeared interested when Ubisoft attempted to include them late in 2022. Indeed, the innovation remains in its early stages, and things could follow either way.
