Forums - Sony Discussion - PlayStation 2023 OpenCritic Prediction League - Year End Results!

Come in, come in and welcome to the PlayStation 2023 OpenCritic Prediction League! Last year's thread didn't get very far unfortunately, but I will be carrying on the tradition this year and have brought over last year's predictions for Forspoken to start with. To those who know the concept the rules should remain very familiar with just some minor changes to the scoring system.

The Rules:

  1. Predict as many or as few games as you like. Those who make predictions on all games will have an advantage in the overall leaderboard, but I will also list average points and number of closest predictions.
  2. OpenCritic scores will be updated until the end of the year. If a score changes after I've tallied the points for a game feel free to let me know.
  3. You can change or post a prediction up until a week before the game releases.

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-point difference 2 points
9-point difference 1 point
10-point difference or more 0 points
Closest prediction bonus +2 points

I’ve changed the scoring system ever so slightly to make it easier to calculate and also added a 2 point bonus to the guess/guesses that are closest to the actual score as an extra reward (and to avoid situations where no or almost no points are awarded if everyone is far off).

The Leaderboard:

The Games:

A fairly modest list of titles so far (though two of them are quite big ones), but I will make sure to add any more console exclusives as they are announced and do let me know if I have missed something.

And now... the games!

Stellar Blade is a bit of an odd one, but since it's being published by Sony I figure it makes sense to include it. Another game I considered was Final Fantasy VII Rebirth which might release this year, but until we get confirmation on a date I'll leave it out.

My own predictions are:

Forspoken - 79
Horizon Call of the Mountain - 90 (seems to me the bar is lower for VR games)
Final Fantasy XVI - 85
Marvel's Spider Man 2 - 89
Stellar Blade - 76



Forspoken - 77
horizon - 84
FFXVI - 82
Spider Man 2 -89
stellar blade - 79



Change my Forspoken prediction to 77.



My predictions:

Forspoken - 77
Horizon Call of the Mountain - 84
Final Fantasy XVI - 84
Marvel's Spider Man 2 - 88
Stellar Blade - 78

Forspoken: 76
Horizon Call of the Mountain: 85

...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.
