The best NFT games use this technology in the mechanics of their gameplay, giving the experience a whole new twist on the genre. I have written about NFT games in detail here.
There are lots and lots of game companies using this NFT in the mechanics of their games and giving a whole new experience of this genre. Players and game developers can make money by selling in-game items with NFTs. This is good for both players and game developers.
