What would you guys think of having a prize pool based on prognosticating the 2018 gaming year? Basically, anything that's TBA or hasn't been announced, you guess whether it will be released this year or not and then, if you think it will be, guess the month you think it will be released in. The top 3 people with the most correct answers win.

We'll give each person 10 game guesses (any 10 you want, as long as it follows the rules above). You get 1 point for correctly identifying whether it will be released in 2018 and 2 points for correctly identifying the month of release. Also, if you correctly guess a game that has not be officially announced at all, you get double points. If a date is officially announced before the end date of submissions, you have to change that guess.

I love these types of games, so I'd be down. Would we keep sports games off the list? I ask because none of the 2018 editions - except MLB The Show - has a release date and it would be pretty easy to game the system.

I was actually thinking of posting something similar about a fantasy draft type thing where we each have 10 picks and we try to guess the 10 best reviewed games of 2018. My roommates and I have done it over the last couple of years and it has been a lot of fun. It's crazy how much time I spend checking stupid Metacritic scores because I've got some money on the line.

Yeah, we'd definitely have to come up with some limitations.

Honestly, your idea sounds a lot better than mine though. I want to do yours instead. Lol.

maybe they could be combined somehow? I am in for either or both though
