In the tweet, he acknowledged that while the growth around Polygon may be gradual, it is undeniably indicative of progress. Nailwal said: 

“Polygon ecosystem’s mainstream products are silently reaching ‘magic inflection points of growth, be it Reddit Avatars, DraftKings NFTs, or Nike dotSWOOSH. Many others lined up too. Soon AAA gaming too. Slowly but surely, fam!”

Of particular note, “AAA gaming” alludes to high-budget gaming titles. Nailwal implied that the Polygon blockchain is poised for substantial expansion to see the development and release of noteworthy AAA gaming projects.
