League Overview


Happy New Year, everyone! Welcome to Year 4 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 2022. So if you shoot for the moon with a game like The Elder Scrolls VI and it gets pushed into 2022, 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 2021.

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 2022. They cannot be used to replace games in your top 10 that review poorly.

The Prize:
1st Place: A $50 Amazon Gift Card

1. Heavyd814life
2. Roko

Based on some reviews people could dump it fast from difficulty so possibly quicker.

Meh. It may just be me but I'm getting real tired of these rogue-like games. I much rather we go back to the craze where everyone wanted to be like Mike and make a Souls-like game.

Awesome. I have that game next on my list to play. I'm getting good scores on the games I picked, but I'm probably sunk since at least 3 of my picks aren't coming out this year (Overwatch II, Gotham Knights, and the sequel to God of War.)

@BloodPuppetX laughing out loud

Yeah, putting BOTW2 was risky, but IF it releases this year it will pay off. If not, then it's essentially a blank bingo slot for next year raspberry

So next year every single person will have BotW2 and Elden Ring on their lists.

Elden Ring will get pushed up to Christmas 2021, so no.

I know you're joking, but one of the DS games (either 2 or 3) was moved forward a month from April to March. First time I had ever seen such a thing happen.

Lol yeah, not a bad alternate to have. Still kicking myself for picking Oddworld, but who could have seen a 66 coming for that game?

I'm mad I picked Babylon's Fall as an alternative. If it comes out this year I have a feeling its gonna bomb hard. Not only did the gameplay look blah but it's now a live service nonsense game. Nope.

Oddworld Soulstorm was solid for me until I got to a part with a game breaking progression glitch which halted my progress 2/3's into the game. Then I could easily see why it got 6's.

Looks like Baldur's Gate III won't be releasing until 2022. Another one to add to the list of games that will be on all our lists next year.

This is probably the game I'm looking forward to the most right now. I love Larian's stuff, and I've always been a big fan of Baldur's Gate II and games like it. I bought BG III right away, but I haven't played it yet, because I want to wait until it's complete.

OP updated with the scores for Scarlett Nexus. It's sitting at an 80 on Metacritic from 34 reviews.

I expected it to be in the low 70s like Code Vein so this is a nice surprise. Only one person, @JD, has it on his list.

So, for me to still have a chance Horizon Forbidden West has to either flop or be delayed to 2022.

Looks like Ghostwire: Tokyo has been delayed to early 2022. I honestly had my doubts it would make it out this year.

Yeah, a lot of stuff is still getting pushed back to next year. Wasn't surprising that Ghostwire would feel the burn of a delay at this point. Not many months left in 2021 and E3 passed so now it's just a few stragglers left to fill up some fall slots I'd imagine.

I've been prospecting Eastward for a while now. I enjoyed their last game, Timespinner. I hope this one does well too. It looks very fun, like an Earthbound/Zelda like old school adventure game.

Dammit. Between that and Rune Factory 5, it means both of my alternates will be used. And I don't stand a chance with Balan Wonderworld. Thanks, Square Enix!

I knew HZD wasn't coming out in 2021. That was a pure wet pipe dream for Sony. Now on the other hand if no more further delays on games 2022 will look OD Brolic with heavy hitters like HZD, God of War 5 and Elden Ring not to mention others like that new Suicide Squad game, Gotham Knights, Starfield, A Plague Tale 2, BOTW 2, Outer Worlds 2, Mario+Rabbids 2, and more I know I'm missing.

Same. All of my game picks that came out had good scores (including one of my alternates), but four of my picks are delayed to 2022.

I was watching the DF tech review of The Ascent and it's crazy if you try to play it on a last gen piece of hardware base or upgraded the load times for last gen were about 3 minutes to load into each section whereas current gen hardware was like 18 seconds max. They were able to finish almost 3 levels in Sonic the Hedgehog on the Master System before it loaded into the game from last gen hardware.
