rejj don’t be sorry! I agree with virtually everything you all have said on the topic. I didn’t really mean to delve so deeply into the environmental/ethical aspects… but on that topic: I have not seen any Bitcoin based games, and Ethereum is transitioning to 2.0 which will make mining obsolete and reduce power consumption by 99% or more.
Video Game King that “art” sure is a bunch of trash!
Also, just to be clear, I am not in favor of these games, and have never played any of them! If any are actually fun or a decent way to make some extra money, I would consider trying one… but in general I do believe it is all a bad idea and not a good direction for games to go.
At the same time we could all use a few bucks, and “investments” like crypto are much more reliable than actual gambling. You won’t see me playing cryptokitties though lol. The whole concept really is bad though, and I don’t like to games move in the direction of really any kind of monetization. Micro transactions, loot boxes, live-service, and gacha systems are all huge turn-offs for me.
