As a thought experiment, I find it interesting that the way items are generated in classic Everquest play well in a future where NFTs are commonplace. Imagine game items like Manastones, Fungi Staves, etc trackable on a blockchain.
(not trolling) Can someone explain how or why this will be interesting please? I don't mess around with anything crypto.

It won't be interesting at all, unless you find lootboxes and other microtransactions we already have super exciting and engaging.

Oh, no i don't. The opposite of interest in fact, repulsion.

I'm still waiting for the ability for players to level design. And host content or charge for access to their sthe ervers/worlds/storylines/expansions.

Not talking about second life and it's community of ERPers.

Like wow, eq1 scale design. When you visit their "realm" they control your stats, and equipment, game rules and spells. The "physics of the world".

well my good chum, you can thank consolization for that i think. We had a version of that with FPS games on PC before, with your own servers and content. Where do you see that today? its matchmaking and lock-down to buy skins. Why would you get your own worlds unless the main company is getting its slice now?

You can thank all the Horse Armor apologists for that one. "Its only cosmetics!"

I'm sorry. And I agree.

Both unreal 2 and quake3 were because of the thousands of levels and skins and all of the mods. Servers could allow autodownloading Levels as well.

So many good levels and even the popular ones had rethemes between different servers.

Railbait did an amazing Egyptian themed level of 2forts? Can't even find anything on Google. It's like staring into a black hole.
