League Overview:


Welcome to Year 5 of the GameTZ Fantasy Gaming League! This is basically fantasy football with games. Each person picks 10 games and those 10 games make up your "team" for the year. The Metacritic scores for your 10 games are tallied up at the end of the year to determine your total. Highest overall score wins. You also get 2 alternate picks (these should be safe choices) just in case one of your picks gets delayed into 2023. So if you shoot for the moon with a game like Final Fantasy XVI and it gets pushed into 2023 (because you know it will lol), one of your alternates takes its place and you don't end up with 0 points for that game. The goal is to pick games that you think have a very good chance of releasing in 2022. Don't YOLO your way into a bunch of 0s lol.

The Rules:
1. No DLC or Expansions
2. No Ports or Remasters (full remakes are allowed)
3. Alternate picks can only replace games delayed into 2023. They cannot be used to replace games in your top 10 that review poorly.

The Prize:
1st Place: A $50 Amazon Gift Card
2nd Place: A $20 Amazon Gift Card
3rd Place: A $10 Amazon Gift Card

Graphics aren't that important but if you enjoy headaches, sure low/inconsistent frame rate is acceptable.

Opinions on it seem very mixed. I just read a 100/100 review and a 50/100. I wonder where I'm going to lay when I actually sit down to play.

I'll update the scores for Pokemon when I do the next big update. Looks like it'll be for Dying Light 2 which drops in a few days. I try to limit the number of edits because it becomes a bit of a chore trying the OP every time the overall score goes up or down a point or two.

That reminds me of a question I had. Which platform are we using for the points? The highest one? lowest one? average of them all? Dying light is 79 PC, 78 XBSX, 77 PS5

What choice do they have? Patch the games before day one and send actual final copies to reviewers?

What do you think this is, 2004?

Suicide Squad KTJL delayed to 2023. Damn it I knew this would happen! Should have went with my frigging gut like I did with God of War Ragnorok!

Yeah, this wasn't even on my shortlist of games. It looks pretty unremarkable to me, but maybe I'm missing something. Plus The Evil Within 1 and 2, Tango Gameworks other games, both reviewed in the mid 70s. But I'm not typically into first person games so I may be missing something.

Side note: Looks like this will be the last Bethesda game on PlayStation consoles. Totally forgot Tango Gameworks was a part of Bethesda. Long live crapty acquisitions! Hopefully Nintendo can join the party soon. They could go after FromSoft and give us some Souls games with the Breath of the Wild aesthetic. That would be fun rolls eyes

It would have been kinda weird to release Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad in the same year. Especially since both games are doing the whole coop multiplayer thing.

Aren't Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad supposed to be Live Service crap like The Avengers and Anthem? I really don't expect those to review well, at all.

No they're not. At least for Gotham Knights they confirmed no live service. Just story coop. We'll see.

Sifu's first reviews are coming in. It's sitting at a 79 on Metacritic right now. Most reviews are an 8 or 9. F-ing Gfinity killed it with a 40.

"40/100, no easy mode. Couldn't beat it."

Pretty much. Every complaint is about the difficulty.

I'm certainly interested in it, but will probably wait for the physical copy.

Because Pokemon Legends is surprisingly really good. The fact that the game is reviewing so highly and looks as ugly as it does is saying something.

I've been spoiled having the opportunity to game on an EVGA 3090 at high framerate 4K resolutions, and even I am really enjoying Arceus. It's the first Pokemon game since Gold and Silver to really have its hooks on me. smile

There's a difference between a difficult game and an unfair/cheap/cheating game. An unfair game deserves to get a knock down on its score.

I would also say reviewers are also usually pretty decent at video games (it's kind of a job requirement). Maybe not competitive esports champion level, but better than average by a fair margin. If they can't beat a game, that's not a great sign.

And do you really think it would have gotten 100 if they didn't have an issue with the difficulty? It wasn't a -60, that's like when game publishers consider every pirated copy of a game to be a lost sale at full retail.

TLDR version quit whining and wait for my sports games to destroy you

If he could have beaten it, would that have improved the score?

Also that seemed like a lot of assumptions @benstylus

Reviewers are inherently good at games? Doubtful.

I might have made some bad choices for my list. Seems 3 could get delayed, and that's including the backup ones
