Many industries like manufacturing, medical, education, and hospitality adopt new and emerging technologies to create better products and enhance processes. On the other hand, the gaming industry itself was built because of new technology. The ‘Brown Box’ by Ralph Baer was the first instance of a video-game system for the commercial market.
And as technology has evolved, so have video games. Along with better programming languages, technologies like LAN, Ethernet cards, and mobile phones have played a great role in bringing the gaming industry mainstream. This has been even more evident in the last couple of years. Further advancements in AI, AR, VR, and blockchain technology have had a significant impact on the creation of games.
As discussed in a previous article, a blockchain is a decentralized digital ledger. Various industries benefit from blockchain technology, and so does the gaming industry. Think about an ice cream sundae. Ice creams are nice, and so are brownies, but a combination of the two is simply perfect. Similarly, adding blockchain technology to the gaming industry will enhance the gaming experience for users.
Despite these advantages, there are a few drawbacks as well. For example, some games may have higher costs to start playing, the gameplay may be basic and more focused on earning, while some have concerns with regulations.
