  • I do have a question. When we say delayed, does a game getting delayed but still releasing in 2019 still count as a delay?



  • @smoothrunes No, only games not releasing at all in 2019 count as delayed.



  • Well in that case, my list is as follows:

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (90)
    Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (84)
    Judgement (86)
    Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes (75)
    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled (80)
    Resident Evil 2 Remake (92)
    Ori and the Will of the Wisps (90)
    Tropico 6 (83)
    Team Sonic Racing (67)
    Kingdom Hearts 3 (89)
    Skull and Bones (delay)
    Trials Rising (83)
    The Outer Worlds (delay)
    Crackdown 3 (70)
    Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order (87)
    Dead or Alive 6 (83)
    Psychonauts 2 (delay)
    Rage 2 (86)
    Shenmue 3 (77)
    Gears of War 5 (87)
    Far Cry New Dawn (74)
    Jump Force (68)
    Babylon's Fall (delay)
    Control (85)
    Metro Exodus (86)
    Anthem (83)
    ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove (72)
    Left Alive (70)
    Biomutant (69)
    Devil May Cry 5 (87)
    The Division 2 (85)
    One Piece World Seeker (73)
    Mortal Kombat 11 (86)
    Days Gone (84)
    Yoshi's Crafted World (80)
    Wolfenstein: Young Blood (80)



  • @smoothrunes Does n/a mean you are abstaining from giving those games scores? You can do that if you want, but I would advise against it. Even a bad guess could still give you some points.



  • Yeah, I don't know enough about the games in question to want to risk giving them a score.



  • @smoothrunes that's the thing though, there is no risk. You can't get minus points.



  • Yeah, I guess you are right. Is it too late to change?



  • @smoothrunes Nope!



  • OK, I have filled in the rest of the scores



  • Alright everybody, in setting the deadline, I wasn't thinking about review embargoes, so to keep it fair I have to cut it off now. I will accept no more lists! Thanks to all who participated!



  • By the way, why not use the Opencritic score which is more significant in my opinion, given that Metacritic scores may vary wildly from one platform to the other?



  • @axel I would be OK with this.



  • @axel Too late now, we all did this thinking of the meta.



  • @axel If I had thought of it before, I probably would have done Opencritic, but @iboshow is right. This was done with Metacritic in mind.



  • I don't really see how people would have voted differently with Opencritic in mind? But fair enough, we can do it next time!



  • I can't see anything changing over the next 2 days, so I listed the current Metacritic scores with the platform they scored highest on.
