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 watched Easy Allies review of Elden and I kept thinking fantasy Dark Souls (which I guess is not a bad thing).

Gran Turismo is killing it (not Eldin Ring killing it, but still good). I wish I had it in my main list, but I'm sure one of my games won't come out this year.

Yeah, I had gran turismo on my list too but took it off. I've also heard mumblings of Mario Rabbids getting delayed. Just mumblings so don't take my word for it, but that would suck for me because I took some gambles.

There are only three certainties in life: death, taxes, and annual sports games.

I think Ubi said on their recent earnings call that it would come out before the end of Q1 2023. I'm still pretty confident it'll come out this year, though.

I was torn between Mario Rabbids and Splatoon and went Splatoon. Splatoon should hopefully be somewhere between 80-83, but looking at all the other lists, I kinda wish I went with something with a bit more upside.

Stray was supposed to be my wildcard and its starting to look like it really may be the make or break on my list. will probably wish id taken hellblade 2 or something if its not good. still hoping bayo3 and botw2 actually happen, dying light 2 was supposed to be a better alternate in case one of those slipped.

To be fair, at this point, those in the top 10 just have picket more games that already came out. If we went by average score per game, things might look a little different. I'm still feeling pretty good about my placement, although I wish I had put GT7 in my main list.

Wow, that Chocobo GP game almost made my list but now I'm glad it didn't. I still want to play it, but I'll do it via the free-to-play version releasing in the eShop.

Babylon's Fall is going to be bad for anyone who picked it. More Square Enix live service trash, apparently.

I had Babylon's Fall as one of my top games in 2021 until they said it would be mainly a live service focus. Then I removed it from my list quicker than flies boink.

It doesn't have to be. But in practice it generally is.

I need 2 of the following to release this year to be ok:

Bayonetta 3
God of War Ragnarok
Hogwarts Legacy
Hollow Knight: Silksong

I'm not too worried about GoW, but I don't know about the other 3...

I'm actually feeling optimistic about Bayonetta 3. The last time they showed it, they put 2022 in the trailer. I'll be surprised if Hogwarts Legacy comes out this year. I don't know what to think about Silksong.

If you don't count Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby 64, Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland, Kirby Squeak Squad, Kirby Return to Dreamland, Kirby Triple Deluxe, Kirby Planet Robobot, or Kirby Star Allies, then yeah. Since NES.

They announced that they've paused development on the game so I think it's unlikely to make it out this year.

So how does the swap work? Do we get to choose which of the two backups we'd like to change out for a game that's delayed to next year? Are we allowed to choose the one with the higher points if they get reviewed before delay is confirmed??

I think they just go in order. If one game doesn't come out, the #1 alt is used (unless that alt also doesn't come out, in which case your #2 is used). If two games don't come out, both alts are used.

If three games don't come out, well better luck next year
