Celebrating Web3 gaming
Reflecting the maturation of the web3 gaming space, the GAM3 Awards 2023 will encapsulate a year brimming with innovation. GAM3S.GG, known as “the home of web3 gaming,” and Magic Eden, a community-centric NFT marketplace, will present the awards.
This year’s competition is shaping up to be fierce. New web3 titles, with their innovative gameplay, are contending for top honors alongside previous winners like Big Time and Shrapnel.
The best titles of 2023
The evaluation criteria for nominations are rigorous. Games are judged on aspects like core loop, accessibility, replayability, fun elements, graphics, and overall gameplay experience. However, certain categories like Most Anticipated Game and People’s Choice Award have different eligibility criteria.
The jury, a blend of industry veterans and thought leaders, includes representatives from web3 gaming VCs, chains, ecosystems, and traditional gaming leaders. Their decision will carry a 90% weightage, with community votes contributing 10%. However, categories like People’s Choice Award and Best Content Creator will rely entirely on community voting.
In 2022, the inaugural GAM3 Awards celebrated over 100 web3 games across 16 categories. The 2023 edition returns with these categories and introduces three new ones: Best Fighting Game, Best Sports Game, and Best On-Chain Game.
Brycent, last year’s Best Content Creator winner, saw a career boost post-award, including signing with XSET, a prominent American professional esports organization. This category, among others, returns this year.
