Video Games in 2021
It feels like video games are trying to figure out what they’re all about right now, and the asset class is maturing as a result. Gone are the heady days of summer 2021 when everything was mooning, and now investors are starting to separate the blue chips from the rest.
Last week’s performance
Fractional secondary markets
The whole asset class was boosted by a copy of SMB 3 on Otis, which holds a disproportionate share of the index on a market cap weighted basis. Overall, though, it was a positive week for games.
It’s noteworthy that older systems (and therefore games) are outperforming their more modern counterparts. While population figures for NES and Gameboy are more or less known, no one really knows how many Playstation games might on a hidden pallet somewhere.
