Last time, we covered a list of 5 modern gaming trends running the industry. But that wasn't nearly enough given how problematic said industry has gotten over the years. Many trends have popped up over those years; some were good while others were downright horrible.

Game developers are facing wage theft and crunch. The games devolved into services with predatory microtransactions—blockchain technology integrating with digital distribution. The list goes on.

So what was missed out on the first list? Here are five more modern gaming trends that are ruining everything.


NFT integration

Lately, some key game companies have been integrating NFT (Non-fungible token) systems into their games with live services. If it doesn’t ring a bell, an NFT is a unique piece of data stored on a blockchain, much like cryptocurrency. But it can be anything else like a work of art, for example. It sounds great for gamers who want to make a living doing what they love. But it’s also unsafe since decentralized data is unregulated, which runs the risk of losses and theft.


In-game ads

What’s worse than being constantly bombarded by advertising in between one’s leisure? Having it directly embedded into it, of course. Nowadays, companies are so bold with their product placements that subliminal delivery seems obsolete. They’ve fully integrated them with their entertainment, and video games are no exception. Whether it’s a fast-paced game or just a slow and methodical adventure, ads are now plastered all over the experience.
