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

I don't think I'll ever get how anyone would play F1 Racing... Maybe it's I only tried an older game from PS1/PS2 era and didn't like it... and things have changed since??

The F1 games by Code Masters are pretty good. However, you really need to be an F1 fan or a racing fan to play them. As they are simulation games and not arcade games.

Agreed. I like both ends of the racing game spectrum though

Sea of Stars delayed into 2023. Slime Rancher 2 may just be early access release this year? Article not clear on that.

I think its good with what we have, no remasters but ground up remakes are fine.

FF7 isnt even a remake, its a new game. rebirth is def coming out march/april 24 at the very earliest so it shouldnt factor next year

Crap. I was hoping Ragnorok would be delayed since my dumb butt forgot to add it to my list yet it was my GOTY of 2018 smh. Still looking forward to it tho! I think I may replay all the old God of War games before to pregame.

That's disappointing for this, but I'm actually kind of relieved overall. I'm looking forward to Forspoken, and I'd rather they not rush it. Also, there is a ton of good stuff coming out in October. I already have Marvel's Midnight Suns pre-ordered, A Plague Tale: Requiem and Scorn on Game Pass to play, and I might pick up Gotham Knights as well.

They just announce they're releasing one more game of the season for this series. I think I have the first 2-3 games... and yet to play them.

Well I'll be able to play them now as I'll have plenty of free time outside of classes and studying for awhile.

That's awesome. I hadn't heard. The first Plague Tale game is one of my favorites.

I kept Ragnarok off my list on purpose. I never thought they'd be able to pull it off and I still think they might not xD But hey, if it releases this year I'm buying it day one so that's still a win.

Bayonetta 3 just got rated and that usually (but not always) means a release date announcement should be coming soon.

I think I'll have 10 that release with my alternates. Just need no nasty surprises on God of War or Plague Tale.

16 of us have Bayonetta 3 on our lists, that's exactly half of us. 14 have it on their main list, with the other 2 as alternates.

I was just thinking, I thought Bayonetta 2 being announced two years before it finally released felt like a long wait, but Bayonetta 3 was officially announced in 2017...

On one hand I have high expectations for Bayonetta 3, but on the other I'm a little worried about its quality because they kept quiet on it for so long. The developers of No More Heroes III were the same way with that game between its announcement and its release, and once the game released you could see why, because it ran like crap. I know its budget was probably nowhere near as big as Bayonetta's though.

Saints Row IV and its expansion Gat out of Hell were duds to me, so I really hope this reboot turns out great not just for this contest, but to redeem the series for me.

OP updated with scores for Stray. It's at 84 on Metacritic from 68 reviews. Very solid!

Well, that's good. I was a bit afraid it would suck and just be an "omg CAT GAME".

Stray definitely looks interesting, glad to hear it rated well. I'll need at least one alternate to have a full score.

New rumor is that Advance Wars might be pushed back to 2023. Damn Russians.

Still one of the dumbest delays for a game in recent memory. Lost a lot of respect for Nintendo on this one.

So will Call of Duty be delayed due to war themes?

Looks like The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been delayed. Almost certainly a 2023 game now.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 looking massive with an 89 right now. Too bad nobody had it on their lists.

Nintendo stealth releasing games the year it's announced is a bit annoying.

It's better than developers announcing games WAY in advance and then they're in development for years and years.

It's a problem both ways really. But the stealth releases tend to go better.

Other than it not working well with this thread, what's the problem with announcing/releasing a game in the same year?

I'd have to guess the possibility of the following:

1. Limited sales
2. Not enough time to decide if it's worth getting (demos, trailers, etc.)
