Renowned streamer and content creator Shroud recently revealed his thoughts on how NFTs have been implemented in games. Shroud said most of the time NFT games are “not really thought out”.
Shroud’s remarks come in the context of a comparison between NFTs and Twitch Drops. These reward viewers with various in-game items for spending a certain amount of time watching streams. When some of his followers started making this link, the streamer said that “y’all love drops but hate bringing NFTs into games”. He went on to say that “I think it’s just the way NFTs are brought into the game, that’s all. They’re not really thought out.
“You really have to worry about making it part of the space,” Shroud explained. “You have to think about it. A lot of ways it’s done now, there’s not a lot of thought. It’s just like ‘hey, yeah, that would be a great idea.’ Copy all that shit.
Streamers like Shroud have descended on both sides of the NFT debate in recent months. While most are clearly not in favor of incorporating NFTs into games, a few content creators, including Dr Disrespect, have openly embraced them.
The development studio founded by Dr Disrespect, Midnight Society, recently announced that its next game will feature NFTs. This of course caused a backlash. The streamer was forced to respond by saying that “you can’t buy your way to winning. It will not be paid to win. However, for those of you who want to get more involved, there are ways to do so through these NFTs.
Streamers like Asmongold have noticed what Dr Disrespect is doing. Asmongold didn’t mince words, calling adding NFT to his game a “big mistake”. He explained that Dr. Disrespect should take note of what his followers expect of him. “If you remove and alter that authenticity by doing like NFTs or whatever, it hurts people’s perception because it’s fundamental to the image it’s created,” the content creator noted. The question remains hotly debated.
