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

The Participants:
1. Heavyd814life

Same :)

Not worried about the game at all but it's starting to feel like it's slipping to next year. Which is fine for everything except this competition raspberry

Video game Kickstarters are mostly pointless to me since often it goes retail before backers get anything. But this was my only VG-KS.

Duh, I didn't even think about that. I knew it was delayed a couple months ago and was given a December date. But yeah, the war.

Rumors swirling Ragnarok is delayed into 2023 but having the first one on PS+ seems to hint the opposite. Other reports saying no word of a delay. Going to be a nail biter

Hopefully tomorrow will give some more info.

God of War Ragnarok rumored to be coming out in November. Wouldn't be surprised to see it pushed into 2023, tbh.

Wow, I'm speechless that I'm number 1 right now. I was expecting to be closer to the bottom as I never really was much on these Fantasy gaming leagues. LOL

Do you know how numbers work? You are number 1 right now because you have 8 games out of 10, and everyone has 7 or less.

I'm nervous now. I was so sure Forza would make it out this year. When's Nintendo's E3 thing? I need a release date for Bayo 3 or I'm probably screwed.

It's been such a wild year! When I first looked over people's lists I was sure the game I'd regret not having would be Advanced Wars and now that may not even make it out this year. It'll be interesting to see how many of us even have 10 games at the end of the year.

I'm just glad I'm doing much better than last year. I'll be thrilled if I manage to get 10 games, but I'm not banking on it.

Suggestion for next year:

No remakes. They're easy high scoring games and take the strategy out of it.

Suggestion for next year:
No annual sports titles.

What kind of nub would pick the safe bets anyway?

We discussed this earlier in the year, but my memory sucks so I don't even remember where we landed on this. I'm guessing by the negs that folks want to keep remakes in? I'm not fussed either way. But I think as long as it's built from the ground up, it should qualify. I look at 2023 and there are only 3 high-profile remakes that come to mind. Sure RE4 will probably slay, but FF7 Remake may or may not come out which makes it a risky pick and then there's Dead Space which could be good, but it's EA so who really knows.

I don't give a fudge about negs. I just negged my own post, so it's-4 now. My point is, it's a lazy, easy score that is mostly an easy pick and takes away from the skill/luck of it. Ultimately it's your choice @Heavyd814life but they tend to always score high.

It's been discussed before. The decision was made to keep remakes in but remasters/rereleases were not. There is still risk in these picks as the remake could be done incredibly poorly (like Secret of Mana https://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/secr...)

Square Enix and lazy stuff, who knew? For every good game they release there are like 10 duds.

I agree. And really, how many remakes do we get each year for this to be a problem? Certainly not as many as lazy remasters, which understandably we're not allowed to put on our lists. And a remake isn't always guaranteed to be a high score. A couple of quick examples off the top of my head, that remake of XIII a couple years ago (rocking a 39 on Metacritic), and last year's remake of Pokemon Diamond/Pearl (sitting at a 73 which is on the low side by Nintendo standards). And if remakes were banned, does that go for reboots too (I have Saints Row on my list)? Where is the line drawn?

I thought the FF7 remake was awesome... Just not happy I won't be able to continue since the rest is PS5....

Looks like reviews dropped for TMNT today. It's reviewing well. Currently at 84 on Metacritic from 23 reviews. I'll update the OP in a couple of hours.

Yeah, I saw that. Great pick! I'm just waiting for a few more reviews to come in before updating the OP.
