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

The Participants:
1. Heavyd814life
2. Roko
3. Cevil
4. TalonJedi
5. SwiftJAB

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.

As someone who loves the Souls games, I have yet to play a clone that was actually good that I even beat. I've played some but usually drop it after a couple hours.

Same here. I tried like heck to even get into a good one like The Surge 2. Nope. Not the same. SoulsBorne games are pure magic.

Gonna probably still check it out. It's scoring as I predicted. Mediocre to average. Looks like it had some potential.

I knew that would happen. Ain't no way that was dropping this year with all this craziness in the world still going on. I'm still surprised HZD: FW is dropping this year.
