The game play-to-earn is a concept you earn from the game you play. This is a beautiful idea and concept once you emphasize too much earning.

According to ChatGPT,

Play-to-earn, also known as earn-to-play, is a business model in which players can earn real-world money by playing a video game. This is typically done through in-game purchases or by participating in in-game activities that have real-world value. Examples of play-to-earn games include CryptoKitties and Axie Infinity.

Little incentive in the game makes the play fun, but it becomes a job when it is all about earning!

No one wants a second job that earns a little without any fun.

People really needed to remember what initially the purpose of gaming.

Does the game provide some sense of joy through the storyline, character design, or the level of challenge?

When all these blend into the making money scheme, there is no fun involved but purely competition.

While earning from the game can pay off your time, your emotion will not attach to the game that purely generates money.

Your emotion will not attach to money longer but to other intangibles, such as a sense of accomplishment, excitement or relaxation.

It isn’t easy to see those complex emotions reflect in earning money.
