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

Yeah, and the first Total War: Warhammer game had an 86 I believe. Definitely one of those games I felt really good about.

@benstylus How do you go all sports games, and leave off the one sports game that will actually score very high? Football Manager.

Actually, looking at scores for sports franchises, most of them average in the mid to low 80s. Ben could end up actually winning this. If all his games end up being 80-84. That would be hilarious.

That's a management sim. As far as I know you can't actually get on the field and play footie yourself.

Correct, but it always scores in the mid to high 80s, because Europe. I thought it did better than Madden score wise, but recently they've scored the same with the last few iterations.

I think you'll be in the top 10 for sure. Last year, only 7 people had at least 10 games come out. Same thing happened in 2020.

Interestingly, I think your 2 alternates will be your highest scoring games and they probably won't count towards your total since all 10 of your games should come out. As @Archer said, I'm pretty sure Football Manager will be the best-reviewed sports game. Either that or F1 2022.

I agree, but I intentionally put them as alts because they aren't annual releases, and that was the point of my list.

I did leave off a couple of annual releases like Rugby because they don't get enough reviews to get a ranking on metacritic.
