JSON format leads to .map is not a function

With the current way strapi outputs a JSON I always get the error .map is not a function. Could it be that this comes from the JSON not being outtut as an Array?

import React, { useEffect } from "react";

export default function Home({ posts }) {
  return (
      {posts &&
        posts.map((post) => (
          <div key={post.id}>

export async function getStaticProps() {
  // get games from the api
  const res = await fetch("http://localhost:1337/api/games");
  const posts = await res.json();

  return {
    props: { posts },

here I get: TypeError: posts.map is not a function

does anyone has a tip for a JS noob how to fix that?

the JSON output is the following:

{"data":[{"id":1,"attributes":{"title":"Guild Wars 2","createdAt":"2022-02-04T20:14:17.254Z","updatedAt":"2022-02-05T10:52:55.696Z","publishedAt":"2022-02-05T10:52:55.693Z","url":"https://www.guildwars2.com","description":"Guild Wars 2 is an online role-playing game with fast-paced action combat, a rich and detailed universe of stories, awe-inspiring landscapes to explore, two challenging player vs. player modes—and no subscription fees!","free":false,"feature_combat":"Fast-paced combat and choose from an arsenal of professions, weapons, and playstyles.

Don’t you wart posts.data.map as posts is an object not an array

I could see the whole API is an object instead of an array. map() won’t work for that.

I destructured data from the API and it works:

 const { data } = await res.json();

That data is an array inside of whatever your API name is.
