  • Got a 90, total. The worst thing about that list? Almost half, 13 of 31, were delayed into 2019 or beyond. Oof.

    As a side note, last year the list of 22 games posted had an average meta score of 64% and 5 delays. Since the list was posted, all but two delays were published: Scalebound and Crackdown 3.

    For 2018, a total of 31 games were posted, with an average meta score of 87% and 13 delays.

    Did I do that math right? Seems high.



  • @naltmank 131 (current champ too!), you accidentally gave yourself points with Metro.



  • @Inustar are you planning on doing this again? If not, let me know and I'll do it.

    Not bad! Some of my choices look so dumb in retrospect though, funny how that goes!

    My guesses are in the () and the results according to Sazime's post are in Bold.
    Not sure if my math is right but I think I got 146 points.
    Every single game I predicted would get delayed did...

    lets see

    115 not half bad pretty on point with the games i thought would be good(though annoyingly never exactly on point)
    vastly overestimated the "bad" games for some reason i kinda thought a 70 is terrible in this day and age i need to be more harsh.

    So @Brandon_Reister seems to be the winner!
    Please check my points though since I did addition after three hours sleep, which is never recommended.

    @Capnbobamous I'm not as checked in with what games are releasing this year as I was last year, so feel free to do this for 2019.



  • Yeah someone kind-hearted could take a moment and try to gather a list for this year. Before RE2 and others start pouring in.
