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

Thanks for hosting again, had a lot of fun with this last year. Hopefully I don't have another Balan Wonderworld moment. A lot of games were rushed out and delayed which screwed a lot of people over last year. I'm sure there will be more of the same this year only slightly less (I hope). Anyways, after so many promising games went sour last year, I decided to go with a slightly unconventional approach and trust my indie instincts mostly with some AAA games mixed in. I'm pretty confident I will have many uniquely selected games.

Let's roll

We tied in The Game Awards betting special thing we did back in 2018 where we tried to guess the winners of all the dumb awards. Thinking back, that was actually kinda fun!

I've had my list ready for three months, lol. I just submitted it. Probably a mistake to not check new upcoming games. But I'll roll with it. And complain in 11 months when it fails me.

I submitted my list. Admittedly I didn't put a whole lot of thought into it. I couldn't think of any indie games to include that I had enough faith in to know they'd review well, so I bet everything on my list will look similar to almost everyone else's lists.
