Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo 2022 OpenCritic Prediction League

What's up and welcome back to 2022's Nintendo OpenCritic prediction league! This one's gonna run for the whole year so we got a lot more games to cover and a new scoring system. First of all same rules as last time (swap out Meta for Opencritic, using same rules as shikamaru317

Scoring

Prediction same as actual score 10 points
1 point difference 9 points
2 point difference 8 points
3 point difference 7 points
4 point difference 6 points
5 point difference 5 points
6 point difference 4 points
7 point difference 3 points
8-9 point difference 2 points
10 point difference or more 1 point

Making the scoring a little difference to increase competition from what happened last time (5 way tie lol) but if u have any other suggestions for scoring leave a comment here. Little disclaimer, I may be late to updating the scores sometimes as I may be running many of these lol so keep in that mind. Also plz alert me if I'm missing any exclusives here!

Now with all that being said, let's get on to the list! (Bringing over advance wars predictions from last time, send another reply obv if u wanna change prediction)

Pokemon Legends - 82
Triangle Strategy - 81
Bayonetta 3 - 88
Kirby & The Forgotten Land - 86
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope - 80
Splatoon 3 - 87
BOTW2 - 95



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

Pokémon Legends - 80

Triangle Strategy - 81

Bayonetta 3 - 85

Kirby & The Forgotten Land - 86

Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope - 80

Splatoon 3 - 83

BotW2 - 100



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

Pokémon Legends: Arceus - 83
Triangle Strategy - 84
Bayonetta 3 - 91
Kirby and the Forgotten Land - 85
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope - 86
Splatoon 3 - 84
BotW2 - 97

Could be fun.

  • Advance Wars 1 & 2 - 78
  • Pokemon Legends Arceus - 80
  • Triangle Strategy - 79
  • Bayonetta 3 - 88
  • Kirby and the Forgotten Land - 82
  • Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope - 82
  • Splatoon 3 - 84
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel - 95

Nothing too crazy IMO, though I do think I'm a touch more pessimistic than the common consensus (my average is 83.5, whereas some of you are guessing averages of 87+).



Love and tolerate.
