League Overview:


Year 3! 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 2021. So if you shoot for the moon with a game like Breath of the Wild 2 and it gets pushed into 2021, 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 2020.

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 2021. They cannot be used to replace games in your top 10 that review poorly.

The Prize:
1st Place: A $25 Amazon Gift Card

It doesn't have to be an announced game. Last year, a couple of people just picked " Mainline Pokémon RPG" since Sword and Shield hadn't been announced yet.

Nothing wrong with having one long shot, but I'd limit it to one. You have to consider if the unannounced game will review that much better than an announced alternative that's not as glamorous but will almost certainly come out in 2020 and will likely review well. It's always better to play it safe.

Yeah I certainly wouldn't want to go too hard into speculation either. You only get two alternates so if you end up with 4 games that don't come out you essentially have no chance at winning.

Yeah, "3D Mario game" definitely works.

@Gypsy Yeah, speculating on PS4 and Switch exclusives killed a lot of lists last year. I don't think we'll have that issue this year, though. The lineup is stacked with tons of high profile games that either have release dates or release windows.

i wish we knew more about nintendos plans for the year, i feel like my list is really playstation/pc dependant and dont want to make too many longshots like pikmin 4 of MP trilogy etc.

one long shot can be interesting since you have two alternates though. its such a stacked year its hard to want to remove something already on the list to take a shot at something like MP trilogy that may not happen this year

There are rumors of a Nintendo Direct coming sometime this month. Maybe we could push the deadline to the end of the month just in case one happens? I don't think there are any big new games coming out this month anyway, so it won't really affect anything.

just submitted. i agree with tony that it sucks that N is a mostly a mystery at the moment, but i also never really realize how stacked a year is until i look at the whole picture.

my list is also PS/XB heavy, but that's because they'll probably have a solid number of huge games just based on the new consoles coming out anyway

i had been doing the same, waiting to see what nintendo might announce, but after the pokemon direct it looked like it would be awhile before we got anything else so i submitted my list, and now there is a direct on the 16th. its supposedly the new smash dlc character but its a 35 min presentation, so it cant be just that.

It most likely is just the new DLC character because it does say it will be "an in-depth look". If there was anything else they would say so.

OP updated, guys. We're 20 strong this year which is awesome! A couple of notes:

- Cyberpunk 2077 was the only unanimous selection followed by The Last of Us Part II which is on 19 of the 20 teams.
- We have our first review of the year. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is currently sitting at a 78 on Metacritic from 11 reviews.

Good luck, everyone! So many really good teams. I think it'll be really close this year.

I foresee Cyberpunk 2077 getting one more delay to slip into a November 2020 release to better align next gen console sales. If both PS5 and XSX are BC, it would be a prime opportunity to bundle and ship Cyberpunk together for the holiday sales I'd think.

if it doesnt make it you at least left FF7 to pick the slack. thats why i put halo as an alt just in case, but i feel like everything is making it this year, even super meat boy, which i hope can be my ace in the hole since no one else picked it.

DOOM is a popular pick, it was on a short list of what didnt make it, i just didnt want to bump anything i had for it. Elden Ring if it comes out this year will likely be a good pick, From games usually are, but i felt like the other games i had were surely coming and that didnt have a date yet. i dont see a lot of baldurs gate 3, but i think (...hope lol) that team will do it right.

I kinda feel dumb for picking Elden Ring. It's just too risky a pick. A game I kinda wish I had picked is Granblue Fantasy Versus. All the big-budget Arc System Works fighting games review well. I wouldn't be surprised if it reviews as well as Dragon Ball FighterZ did.

if it does hit though it could be really good. i may be the opposite and wish id taken more risks several months from now, thats part of the fun though i suppose.

the granblue games were on my mind, but im always leary about non big name rpg/fantasy stuff, when it comes to reviews you gotta consider all those mainstream reviewers that hit that metacritic score.

Yeah, I'm not sure what happened to Scots. There wasn't any indication that he was leaving, just one day he stopped posting, then eventually stopped logging in altogether.

I was thinking about putting Elden Ring on my list but From Soft is usually a clutch player in the game. They either will have something out or not in a short window of time. Sekiro's release date was announced in a shorter window of time. I think Sekiro's release date was revealed late summer 2019 and out like 5 months later with no delays. And like I think @Archer pointed out earlier, From loves those March/April releases.

Scots is on my Switch friends list and I still see him on occasionally. So he's doing fine at least!

Yeah, that is why I didn't put it on my list. This gen they've exclusively gone March on releases for big games. Sekiro, March 22nd. Dark Souls 3, March 24th. Bloodborne, March 24th. Dark Souls II, March 14th. So I fully expect a third week in March release next year, on March 23rd. Unless its a big shock and next month they announce March 24th of this year.

I think I'm the only one with Backbone on my list, I wanna see how clutch that indie game comes. I'm really excited for the game itself, regardless of this though.

There's just so many games coming out that really good ones are going mostly unnoticed. All about picking the gems that other people didn't.

It looks like I'm one of only two that have Silksong on their lists. The first Hollow Knight reviewed really well and is be surprised if the second didn't do the same

I guess it's me and you- Silksong is going to be great!

I'm sure it'll make it out this year. They announced a while ago that it would be a cross-generation game so I'm guessing they'll probably just look to line it up with the new consoles.

It's kinda crazy, though. That's 3 delays in the last week.

Ya I feel the same. They'll have Dying Light 2 cross gen and come out with the next gen systems in a bundle pack or something. And that's 4 games in total delayed for 2020 and we are only 3 weeks into the year. This holiday season is gonna be insane. I expect Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 to be the next target for 2020 to set it's sights on to delay. That and Ghost of Tshushima maybe. Only one that seems to be safe for now from delays is RE3 as Capcom said there's nothing stopping RE3 from coming out on 4/3 so there's that at least but I'll only believe that when I see that it has gone gold. 2020's wrath for delays seems quite ravenous.

ya when they said april i was like no way, when i saw that i wasnt shocked, late 2020 is always what i expected for CP, and the spring is so loaded i'll be bleeding into the summer probably so something getting pushed isnt so bad.

My only concern is that the fall holiday season is now going to be jam packed with not only new game releases that were pushed from spring to fall 2020, but new consoles as well as half the crap that remains unannounced such as the few games Ninty's got planned on talking about soon that were supposedly leaked like that 2D Paper Mario and Metroid. It's looking like a very broke holiday season for many of us.

Yeah. Going to have to only buy one of the new consoles and push the other one to much later. Especially if the high prices are correct. Trying to buy two consoles and a bunch of games would be way too expensive.

My thoughts exactly. I think I may just do what I did for this gen. PlayStation first and Xbox a year later. We'll see.

i have been thinking i will def be on the new consoles right away, but it may depend on whats there.. im sure we will have a better picture in the coming months. ive seen rumors that ps5 could be revealed as early as next month, but that seems early. the kids will prob want new xboxes for Christmas, which is good really because they are hard to buy for and having a sure thing makes it easier lol.

Ya on the X front, Halo Infinite is still perking my antennas up though. I think it's more so the fact that it's a new Halo releasing with a new Xbox and that hasn't happened in almost 2 decades and I remember being 14 and opening OG Xbox on Christmas morning with Halo and living through that amazing moment to want to relive it again. Although it's likely Infinite may be modern day doody. Time will tell!

I never had an original Xbox, I just played Halo 1 and 2 at friends houses. I had no idea Halo 1 launched with the system, that's really cool!

halo and FPS in general lost me long ago, just not where i want to put my time but i hope halo ends up being really good. now if they announce that new fable at e3 or something.. but PC will probably get that too, its getting less necessary to have consoles espcially xbox if you have a decent rig.

I've loved all of the Halo campaigns, but Halo 3 was the last time I liked the multiplayer. I really hope the MP in Infinite is like 2 and 3.
