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

PC games being ported from PC to console are a no go, right? For example Disco Elysium is being ported this year and its only been released on PC so far.

Remakes on the level of Final Fantasy VII or OddWorld or something are fine since that's effectively an entirely different game, though.

From Software's development cycle isn't usually this long. Covid has definitely had an impact.
