Top 10 Crypto RPG Games [2022]

Popular Blockchain Role-playing Games.

What is an RPG Game? 

RPG stands for a role-playing game. In an RPG game, the players must choose a character and move through different levels to advance. They may have to defeat dragons or rescue princesses along the way. An example of a basic RPG game that we can all relate to is Super Mario Bros. 

Super Mario goes on a journey to rescue the Princess. Along the way, he collects a ton of tokens to gain extra lives. He must consume a few mushrooms to gain extra strength. He advances from level to level until he finally defeats the monster and rescues the Princess.

What are Crypto RPG Games?

Crypto RPG games are similar to traditional RPG games. The players go through the same motions of choosing a character, collecting tokens, and advancing from level to level. The graphics and themes are similar. However, there are a few key differences.

Traditional RPG Games vs. Crypto RPG Games

Traditional RPG Games are created and owned by private companies. The company owns the characters and determines every element within the game. Crypto RPG games, on the other hand, are built on the blockchain, and the gaming characters are NFTs (non-fungible tokens). Blockchain technology allows players to participate by determining elements within the game and owning their NFT characters. Blockchain also introduces the play-to-earn concept – where players can earn a token with real value while playing the game.

Choosing which game to play

Blockchain gaming began in 2017 with Crypto Kitties and has evolved into a multimillion-dollar industry. Before diving into crypto RPG, it’s advisable to do your research. Once you find a game that tickles your fancy, read their white paper. Make sure that you understand the tokenomics of the projects before investing your time and money. If it’s a play-to-earn game, calculate how much time you will have to invest to break-even. Whatever game you choose to play, the future has never been brighter for blockchain and NFT gaming.
