I agree. I don't think the technology itself it inherently evil, just the way greedy corporations have tried to shoehorn it in thus far. Given the way Eve's marketplace works (with every ship, module and even bullet being player manufacturered ), there could have been an avenue for NFTs to be intelligently incorporated to benefit the player

There is really nothing blockchain can add to games. Basically, it just provides a decentralized and very power intensive method of validating ownership or authenticity of something. Which can be useful if used for things like important documents, certainly, but game items and even entire accounts just aren't worth the hassle. Plus it makes it infinitely harder to edit game states when something goes wrong.

Anyone supporting nft use is simply trying to profit from it, there is no other reason to push it.

I say this every time this topic comes up: ANYTHING an nft technology can do, SERVER side storage and programming can also do, it’s just about resources.

The only reason to use NFTs over server side storage and programming would be to push the handling and maintenance of data to everyone else, avoiding the cost of maintaining server infrastructure to handle and maintain that same data.

TLDR: Greed but for different reasons, and also laziness

Screw EVE Online and NFT's… Have you seen the new No Man's Sky trailer? :D

Not because the company doesn’t want to use them but because they fear the backlash. It’s always a shame that the companies don’t just do the fair thing.. not the good thing bc that’s asking way too much, no we have to hold a knife to the company throat to get what’s far. Pathetic

I would love to get into the NFT market but it's expensive with the gas price alone, something could cost $18 but the gas could be over $400

Blockchains and NFTs are useless to gaming if they primarily or only add a financial (burden/incentive) overhead to the user experience

4 years ago we were all selling in game items anyway, things that were hard to get for some without a guild or corp or such, we would make real world money transactions for in game currency, items, dungeon runs, accounts etc, these items are not one of a kind but still had a value to them.

Game companies have tried to step in and take some of that money already, with real money auction houses and the like, but they've also stopped their own advances, a lot of games that used to allow the selling of in game items on the steam market place have taken that away, when that is EXACTLY What they're trying to do now only with useless "one of a kind" items instead of useful or sought after rarities like skins.

they're basically just trying to privative and isolate player made markets instead of letting us just do what we were already doing.

NFTs allow the player to own their assets and may be worth the time and effort spent. Not all of us can spend hours and hours useless in a game. If some monetary benefit could be legally obtained from a certain ability in games, the user base would grow exponentially

Sooner or later everything gets hacked, NTF and block-chains are no exceptions. So what is your "unique" piece of code worth when it starts being copied at will?

2 words. Fuck NFTs. You said it best, it would place the gaming industry firmly in the grip of greedy corporations. I.E, EA and now Ubisoft. With the latter still salty at how good Elden Ring was during its release. This isn't any different from lootboxes. CCP did the smart move.

If they somehow hinder your progress through the game, you can only purchase items needed to progress by using them? then the game has become a pay to play, and no longer free to play, I would not purchase any AAA game that has that as a form of currency built-in to it, because like most games the likes of Elite it uses its own in-game currency "ARK's" which you gain by just playing the game or purchase from the store, but you are not forced to do so, and are used for cosmetic items in the game.

I would like to know which part of the game they would NFT. I mean I would like to know but I don't need to know. If I'm already playing the game and I have my ships and my modules and my currency– which part of that do I need to validate publicly, exactly? What part of the game could be so inherently unique that I would feel inclined to declare that I own a version of it.

Good! There is no legitimate need for such things in gaming, they add nothing at all for the customers and are in fact a thinly veiled way to scam fools out of yet more money with no return. Even if it was somehow legitimate then who plays games to earn money? Games are meant to be escapism and not a paltry second job.

The funniest part, to me, is that EVE Online and literally every other MMO and game that requires you to register to play, already have NFTs. They're called game accounts. And in EVE, you're already able to trade game accounts with CCP's blessing. There is nothing that NFTs, specifically, can add to video games. At any point, CCP can just start making objects in the game obtain UUIDs or serial numbers (which they have already, otherwise servers couldn't keep track of multiple copies of the same assets in the same space), that make them a unique and specific entry in their databases.
We have NFTs in games already, they've been a thing since MMOs were invented, if not before that. Since before even the blockchains existed.

The only real addition the implementation of blockchain tech & NFTs in video games can have, is increased power consumption. Everything else it can offer, we already have.

Also some crappy indie game just recently had like $600m stolen worth of NFT's so this kinda makes sense

Weapon skins worth THOUSANDS of dollars already exist. NFT's will happen and quite a loot of players will be praising them.

Frankly, while CCP still puts the bullies, harassers and Real world criminals at the top of their influence list, then I will still not touch EVE.
They can start by making a pure PVE server (abeit with much more difficult NPC's
EVE is the worst online example of allowing real world criminal behaviour virtually, all while given the criminals zero consequence of their actions.
