You have seen them. I have seen them. We have all seen those terrible NFT apes litter our social media, they are smug and boring and disgusting. Now, the Doom mod will let you fight monkeys, lowering their value from behind the barrel of the dual-barrel camera.
Published on ModDB by Modder Ultra.Boi last week, NFT doomsday Replaced the inhabitants of hell with the same terrifying primates from the infamous Bored Ape Yacht Club-a collection of 10,000 procedurally generated apes that represent the current state of the NFT collection .

Instead of using shotguns and rocket launchers to deal with these beasts, Doomguy uses a handheld camera to intercept these high-value chimpanzees. The NFT community is getting more and more angry with the idea of ”right-clickers”, which is an interesting stimulus. People save and screenshot their overpriced pictures to highlight the absurdity of the idea that anyone can have a jpeg. Every time an ape is killed, a ridiculously large amount is subtracted, thereby reducing their value.
So far, this is the only acceptable way I have seen to bring NFT into the game. But this has not stopped encryption promoters from trying to penetrate this field. Last week, Stalker 2 faced such strong resistance to its proposed NFT integration that its developers retracted these plans within a day.
At the same time, Ubisoft is still going all out on its own uninspired breakpoint NFT. But as Respawn (and former Ubisoft) artist Liz Edwards discovered, there seems to be little demand for slightly different metal helmets.
How is the performance of Ghost Recon NFT? I checked the 2 3rd party markets linked from the Quartz site and it seems that there are… 15 total sales? 0 On 1 site on the last day? Did I read it right? pic.twitter.com/rWxvEW3NrhDecember 20, 2021
Hostility to NFTs has always been a rare unifying factor for players from all walks of life. The only support for them comes from senior management and people who have a deep understanding of cryptocurrency. In other words, it is easy to understand why NFT promoters are attracted to this field-after all, Steam has effectively allowed the industry to accept the fact that in-game items may be worth thousands of dollars.
NFT is probably inevitable. But before that, why not waste hours splashing those terrible things in the halls of Mars?
