web3 metaverse as a "3D game engine?"

game engines like colyseus will be as big as cms, crm or commerce in the metaverse (decentraland) - YouTube

by Chris Hay

the claim is that "businesses" and people will want to use game engines to participate to "metaverse" environments... 

the "only" trouble with this claim is: what is the value of 3D virtual environment that is not already available in 2D? 

even web 1.0 had perfectly usable tools for 3D "worlds", good 25 years ago!

needless to say, it didn't get much traction, not only for businesses... 

maybe it would be different this time?

even based on basic progress of computing technology, it "should" be more than 5000 times faster now (2^12.5), and in domain in GPU that acceleration is even much faster, so who knows, the tech may become usable enough for something more than demos...
