Many people, like videogame legend and the brain behind the masterpiece we came to love as Epic Mickey Warren Spector, believe that NFTs are a squander of labor and expense. He calls NFTs “stupid.” The guy responsible for such masterpieces as Deus Ex, System Shock, and Thief is a superstar in the gaming business.
Let’s hear all about it.
NFTs Don’t Intrigue Me
Spector revealed the information in a conversation with GamesBeat, in which he talked about his extensive videogame experience, both previous and current. NFTs as well as the bitcoin didn’t intrigue him at all, but he stated he could see some promise in the virtual world.
“Here’s where I’m going to get in trouble,” Spector revealed to VentureBeat. “I’m literally going to have people giving me hell about what I’m about to say, but I really don’t think I care. NFTs are ridiculous.”
The videogame superstar wasn’t nearly as dismissive of the metaverse, however, he still does not understand the attraction, that many expects of gaming business favor. Spector seems to have given up on Twitter some years ago and sees the metaverse in a very similar light as he does the internet in general.
Even if the metaverse does exist eventually, it won’t be till after I’m dead.. That’s good news for me. I like being a part of the actual world. Putting on a headphone and communicating virtually with others while not realising if my woman is following behind me brandishing a racquet is not something that interests me in the least. The present world of social media isn’t one where you can just say, “Wow, that’s amazing!” It has been approximately three years since I last used facebook. I’m done with it. I was fed up with the constant criticism and the energy it was consuming. It didn’t improve my quality of life in any way.
Like D&D where your rank depends on how many disciples you have, I’ve constantly explained to folks how this works. Many people believe that having a large following means that you are successful in some manner. I simply want to create games.

Even though “prediction is a fool’s game,” the developer hinted that “it could be that the metaverse is the future” when asked about his thoughts on metaverse. “I’m a bit doubtful,” Spector continued. There is a chance that this once will work out. In the near future, there will still be obstacles to overcome.
Consider the amount of cash Meta has invested and the revenue they’ve received back, and you’ll see that someone is throwing pretty huge dice. We’ll have to wait and see. I might be mistaken. “I believe we’re still a long road away from that becoming a reality,” he said.
