Where gaming and finance meet in Web3 has been termed GameFi, and it has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past few years. There are even several data analytical resources to try and figure out what are the hottest blockchain and Web3 games currently available. Cointelegraph Research dove into this topic head on and developed a top 20 games report.
The report goes over some of the differences between Web2 and Web3 gaming and some of the evolution in GameFi.

In addition to an overview of 20 games, there is also a section on some of the most anticipated games set to be released shortly. This report is equally fit for a casual crypto investor who wants to keep informed on different trends in the industry all the way to anyone looking to find out what Web3 game they will try out next.
GameFi combines blockchain, protocols, devs, investors and users
Web3 gaming goes far beyond a studio creating an engaging story slapped together with some cool-looking graphics. As opposed to Web2 or “traditional gaming,” which uses a gaming engine like Unreal Engine for example, the incorporation of nonfungible tokens (NFTs) makes owning a piece of the game and giving players control over the platform a reality. The use and tokenization of different cryptographic protocols also enable a greater ability to invest in the ecosystem of a particular game, like Axie Infinity.
