What are your thoughts on ethereum games? (like CryptoKitties or CryptoCountries)

Completely stupid but a good way to stress test the blockchain.

But can be a fun and easy way for users to start learning about the blockchain, smart contracts, how to use them, how to interact with it, how to secure yourself, etc...
Also a good way to test the network, but also test, iterate and improve solutions or UX in the blockchain space.

I really believe CryptoKitties helped a lot improve the ethereum network (by using it at a bigger scale), and the ethereum space (better UI / UX, push metamask to improve,...)

wait... well, this apply for CryptoKitties but not much other games. They are all shitty ugly opportunistic games. nvm
