Mint One Podcast, Episode 29: 15 Next-Gen Web3 Games to Watch

"All blockchain games are clickers and boring" we hear them cry. Well, there are a lot of Web3 games to be excited about, you just need to know where to look.

We’ve had a few weeks — asides from NFT.NYC — of negativity on the Mint One podcasts. John and I love this space, and although we criticize to improve it, we could do with reminding ourselves why we’re here.  

Token Gamer and NFT Insider have decided to combine forces to launch a weekly podcast, Mint One (formerly WAX Lyrical). John Nichols of NFT Insider and I will discuss a new topic every week, as well as feature special guests. If there’s a topic you’d like us to cover, make sure you let us know through the Token Gamer Discord or Twitter, or the NFT Insider Discord or Twitter.

In last week’s episode, we discussed the dangers of Web3 influencers in the space and some of the shady practices being undertaken. This week we step back into the light with some brilliant games to play and look forward to.

Episode 29: 15 Next-Gen Web3 Games to Watch

If there’s anything that acts as testament to how much John and I love this space, it’s that we wanted to pick a few games each to discuss and ended up rattling off 15. One of the most common criticisms of blockchain gaming is that the games are terrible. The clickers that pioneered Play-to-Earn (P2E) and tokenization have also tarnished the reputation to many gamers. That’s a shame; those clickers have paved the way for more “traditional” projects.  

There are myriad games I’m excited for, some you can play right now in alpha or beta states, some are a way off, but if you know where to look, there is a great deal to be excited about. My portion of this list has a few expected favorites, like Forge Arena, and there are also some games that made both of our lists, like Skyweaver. However, if you stick around, you’ll hear some obscure games I’m looking forward to and a couple of extreme curveballs!  

We’d like to ask that if you listen to us on Apple Podcasts and/or Spotify that you rate us five stars and leave us a review if you enjoy Mint One. This helps both our podcast and the blockchain gaming ecosystem as a whole!  

To listen to Mint One, you can find us on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Anchor, and Google Podcasts.
