The Solana Foundation aims to prioritize high-quality gaming experiences. It seeks to combat unfavorable impressions of NFTs and blockchain games. The PlayGG event in San Diego showcased games built on Solana’s blockchain. The foundation hosted the event to promote blockchain gaming.
Solana Games’ General Manager Johnny Lee was ecstatic with how well-received the event was by participants and the developer community. PlayGG targeted investors, media, and local San Diego families. It aimed to provide a blockchain gaming experience without heavy emphasis on crypto or NFTs. At the event, attendees played major games like Star Atlas, Aurory, and Alchemy: Battle for Ankhos.. Members of the G2 Esports squad also made appearances.
At PlayGG, developers avoided the term “NFT.” They referred to collectibles as “digital collectibles” instead. PlayGG games didn’t heavily promote NFTs or token rewards. They differed from traditional blockchain games, often centered around play-to-earn mechanics. Additionally, certain games might be played completely without spending any money.
Today, the two-day PlayGG event kicks off in San Diego at the Julep Venue!

The purpose of Solana Games, according to Lee, is to stand out even when compared to ordinary Web2 games, not just to outperform other blockchain games. He emphasized the value of employing blockchain technology to deliver distinctive and excellent player experiences.
Developers have to provide a playable build of their games for Solana Games to test to guarantee the backing of potential projects. The PlayGG event featured more than 50 games, demonstrating the foundation’s dedication to providing top-notch gaming experiences on the Solana network.
Solana Games: Investing in Quality for the Future of Blockchain Gaming
In response to earlier worries about the poor quality and high cost of access in the blockchain and metaverse games, Lee reaffirmed that Solana Games is willing to invest the required funds to guarantee that only the best games are made available on the network. Priority has been given to long-term value and quality over immediate returns.
Lee said the Solana network had problems in the past, but he was confident in it now and in its ability to support gaming and transactions. Lee mentioned hope in the planned Firedancer validator client, which is expected to further increase the network’s stability.
At the event, developers showcased games still in development, but Lee is hopeful about their ability to compete successfully against titles in the traditional gaming business once they are released. The goal of Solana Games is to show that Web3 games can compete favorably with the top titles available.
The success of PlayGG and game quality influence blockchain gaming’s perception and mass adoption potential. Solana’s development plays a key role. Solana’s focus on high-quality user experiences is crucial for blockchain gaming’s development. It positions Solana as an important player in the industry.
