A collection of play2earn projects for 2022
For a long time, the industry of games that allow you to earn money or receive NFT has been growing rapidly. Axie Infinity alone in 2021 has reached a ceiling of 2.3 million daily active players, which many games on Steam or Epic Games would envy. Of course, this is not the only such a large project, already on the Hive we have one of the largest play2eran games - Splinterlands. In connection with the creation of hundreds of new projects, I decided to create a list of games, for people who do not know what to do with the projects that are already finished as well as those that are just being created.
Fully playable games
Card game - https://splinterlands.com/
Blockchain: Hive + WAX
"Splinterlands is one of the first successful NFT games that started out as steem monsters. This game has been around for years, and with their launch of Lands and the splinterlands token, the game took off to new levels over the last few months. It's free to play, so you can test it out and see what you think before you buy any cool cards or packs."
Card game - https://axieinfinity.com/
"Axie Infinity is a game universe filled with fascinating creatures, Axies, that players can collect as pets. Players aim to battle, breed, collect, raise, and build kingdoms for their Axies. The universe has a player-owned economy where players can truly own, buy, sell, and trade resources they earn in the game through skilled-gameplay and contributions to the ecosystem."
Card game https://godsunchained.com/
"Gods Unchained is a free-to-play tactical card game that gives players true ownership of their in-game items. Led by the former game director of Magic The Gathering: Arena, the game focuses on competitive play, which means players must strategically outsmart their opponents by building decks that are able to combat a wide variety of tactics. In Gods Unchained players completely own their digital items, giving them the freedom to trade, sell and use their cards any way they like - just like owning real, tangible cards."

Tower defense https://plantvsundead.com/
Blockchain - Binance Smart Chain
"Plant vs Undead (the "Game" or "PVU") is a multiplayer tower defense game inspired by many widely-known tower defense games. The Game is set in a world called Planet Plants, once beautiful and peaceful home to animals and the "Plants". Unfortunately, a strange and deadly disease coming from the meteors turned the animals into the ferocious "Undead", seeking to destroy all living beings, including the Plants and their "Mother Trees". However, not all hope is gone, as with the nurturing power of the Mother Trees and the adaptation and evolution of the Plants, some "Seeds" have grown into special Plants with magical elements and special traits to defend the Planet against the Undead. Generations of the Plants have become tireless fighters and soldiers, all to protect the home of the Mother Trees."
