The competition for each category within the GAM3 Awards has been fierce, with each game fully deserving of winning the title. Having made it into the top five nominees of the Most Anticipated category is a testament to the quality and how far we have come in web3 gaming. Web3 gaming has evolved massively in an incredibly short amount of time. A year ago, most of these games weren't around, but now, these are what we look forward to within blockchain gaming's future.

The quality of web3 games isn't slowing down. In fact, it will only keep getting better. The game in this category is a testament of the interest from the traditional gaming world in building innovative games while taking advantage of what blockchain technology can do in terms of digital asset ownership, decentralization, community input, and so much more.
