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.

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.

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

@Heavyd814life - weird request, but I would like to officially drop Gran Turismo 7 from my alternate list.

Not replace it with anything, just remove it entirely. With the crap Sony is pulling with the game (8x more expensive DLC cars, reducing race rewards to make it harder to grind, much of the single player content requiring you be online), I just want nothing to do with it anymore.

Removing it won't have a potential positive effect on my score - it's my second alt, so Forza would have been used first if a game on my main list didn't come out. All removing it would do is make it so I get a zero instead of 87 if a second game didn't release.

I agree if there was a chance that removing the game would increase my score, but since the only effect this could have on my score is negative, I feel like it would be OK. But I will let Heavyd814life decide since this is their topic.

According to this article:

In its full-year earnings report published on Wednesday, the company said Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope and Skull & Bones are on track to release during its current fiscal year ending on March 31, 2023.

Speaking on the company's earnings call, chief corporate finance officer Frédérick Duguet narrowed the release windows for the three games to the second half of the fiscal year, meaning they won't be released before October 1, 2022.


Mario + Rabbids is looking like early next year? So anywhere after October 1, 2022

I was being sarcastic, talking crap about how buggy/crapty their games are and that they never patch/fix them.

But I am honestly shocked this was delayed. They always release games in a mess of a state. Why bother delaying this one?

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.

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.

Kommie
GameTZ Subscriber 250 Trade Quintuple Gold Good Trader
14-Jun(#192)
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.
SwiftJAB
GameTZ Subscriber Triple Gold Good Trader
14-Jun(#193)
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...)

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?

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.
