Guess the OpenCritic 2022



  • Well folks it’s the new year, which means that it’s time for our annual Guess The OpenCritic™ thread. For those unaware of how the game works, here are the rules:

    1. I will give you a list of video games, and your job is to guess what score you think it will get on the review aggregator site, OpenCritic.
    2. You can also guess delays, or even cancellations if you think it likely.
    3. You can’t guess both a score and delay for the same game.
    4. You will get points depending on how close you are to the score each game receives.
    5. You technically don’t have to guess for each game listed, but I recommend it. Any points are good points.

    Just like last year, we also have Wildcard Games for you to predict, which are games that may come out this year but are not officially slated as such. There are only five this year, but there are a few titles that have become staples of this game, and I would feel bad leaving them out. Here are the rules for Wildcard Games:

    1. Like the normal games, you are to guess what score you think they will get on OpenCritic.
    2. However, you are NOT allowed to guess a delay for them, as they don’t technically have a 2022 date anyway.
    3. You ARE, however, able to guess a cancellation if you so choose.
    4. Again, you technically don’t have to guess for each game listed, but I recommend it, you can’t lose points for guessing.

    And that’s all I have. I ask that you give me a little while to get the scores out for last year’s game. I’m up to my ears in forum work so it may take a little while. If you would like to grade yourself like Shoulderguy has, by all means do so.

    Voting closes Monday the 17th. Here is the list of Official 2022 Games:

    The grading system is as follows:

    Exact Score = 12 points
    1 point off = 9 Points
    2 points off = 8 Points
    3 points off = 7 Points
    4 points off = 6 Points
    5 points off = 5 Points
    6 points off = 4 Points
    7 points off = 3 Points
    8 points off = 2 Points
    9 points off = 1 Point
    Game is delayed or cancelled without guessing as such= 0 Points
    Guess a delay = 5 Points
    Guess a cancellation = 15 points
    Good luck and have fun!

  • Gonna give an extra friendly bump here. Totally cool if you just don't want to do it but don't forget about it if you do.



  • just did my maths for last years one 12 minutes at 90 ouch.

    and like last year i will use shoulderguy as my copy paste basis.

    my plan going in is delay more games... loose all hope.

    Starfield 89 ------my brain says below fallout 4 level(87) but
    God of War: Ragnarok 95 --i think i will like it more but it will have a lower score...fuck that it's beating zelda baby.
    Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League 82 ------im weirdly confident in this releasing but not in the game.dont worry you can play it singleplayer?
    Dying Light 2: Stay Human 85-----we've seen so much of this game but i feel like it might do a deathloop but BUGZ
    Sifu 82----- cool indie already good preview buzz
    Gran Turismo 7 86 ------they said campaign will be a focus
    A Plague Tale: Requiem 87----- microsoft push.
    Forspoken 84 -----ff15 without the ff shackles.
    Pokemon Legends: Arceus 77
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl 82
    Kirby and the Forgotten Land 79
    Saints Row 75
    Babylon's Fall 59 ben said it's like a 2/10
    Redfall 81
    Marvel's Midnight Suns 84
    Elden Ring 92 ------their last 6 souls game range from 89-92 they are consistent, could they have the 3 best games ever made.
    Ghostwire: Tokyo 80----- looks ok evil within was never reviewed too well
    Ark 2 Delay

    Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora 83 ------it's either the most generic thing ever or cool as hell
    Bayonetta 3 90-----hype. babylons fall will "fall" for this
    The Callisto Protocol Delay
    Gotham Knights 82
    Hogwarts Legacy 81 -----i have no clue, screw jk rowling but i hope the devs do well.
    Mario + Rabbids Spark of Hope 86
    Sonic Frontiers 69 get it
    Horizon Forbidden West 90----- across the board improvement
    Splatoon 3 82
    Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga 85
    MultiVersus 79
    Stray 80
    Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin 80 -----i really hope this ends up in that revengence catagory
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge 82
    Open Roads 81
    Tchia 75----- heart felt but not great
    Untitled Breath of the Wild Sequel 94----- similar to ragnarok i think it being to similar might hurt it, nintendo fans though,

    Wildcard Games:

    Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 80----- i dont now why i still have hope
    Hollow Knight: Silksong 92
    Haunted Chocolatier 86
    The Lord of the Rings: Gollum 80
    Skull & Bones ------cancellation likely but they wont tell us

    i still have to much hope no way i put in enough delays. also FF16 should totally be a wildcard game
