By game type, role-playing games to account for the highest market share during the forecast period

P2E gaming model works on blockchain, crypto, and NFTs to transform the traditional free-to-earn concept into P2E. Role Playing Games (RPGs) are actively played all over the world, and these games have always been a trendy genre in the industry. In these games, players directly control characters while engaging in real-time combat, and players can earn NFTs and crypto rewards while playing these games. RPG games have a variety of subgenres, such as action-oriented RPGs and turn-based RPGs. RPG games empower users to enjoy unique game experiences with in-game weapons, avatars, and skills.

Unlike traditional games, RPG games are integrated with in-game assets, such as NFTs, skins, weapons, and others. The different subgenres of RPG games, such as action-based, multiplayer, and others, make them widely popular among the masses. In an RPG game, players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting.

It's the responsibility of players to act out these roles within a narrative. It can be through literal acting or through a process of structured decision-making regarding character development. In these games, players need to acquire more and better weapons or similar items to improve their character, which is why RPGs on the blockchain strongly connect with NFTs. Axie Infinity, Binemon, Blankos Block Party, My Crypto Heroes, and Lost Relics are some of the famous blockchain-based RPG games.
