After a thoroughly adequate year last year, I have high hopes for this coming year, which I know very little about.

HAHAHAHAHAHAJesus H. Christ. Duh!

Anyway: is it time to predict next year's gaming happenings?  Yes it is!  The world remains in a state of flux so bizarre that any prediction may seem pointless.  Me, I just think that's a chance for our most out-there predictions to have a chance of coming true.  Here, then, is my all-Nintendo list:

  1. The Nintendo Switch has an amazing year, in my personal opinion.  A backlog of games held up by COVID streams out and drowns us in sticky Nintendo gaming brilliance.
  2. Breath of the Wild 2 comes out.  It's really good, but not as good as the GoaT that preceded it.  (Read: 92-96 Metacritic score, makes Balla's top 25 of all time.)
  3. In the first of several recycled projections from 2020, No More Heroes 3 finally gets that 80-89 Metacritic score.
  4. In the second of several recycled projections from 2020, we'll see another core Mario game, either 2D or 3D, releasing this year, that is not a port/remaster/remake/whatever.
  5. The Zelda anniversary collection happens.  It's a rehash of games that includes Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, and bewilderingly takes the N64 versions of both over the 3DS ones.
  6. We don't see any actual gameplay from Metroid Prime 4, says Balla, dying a little inside.
  7. We get a new Kirby game.  It's one of the more original-feeling ones, and beats 75 Metascore as a result.
  8. Silksong releases!  It's a stoater, but not as well-received as the original.  (Read: 82-89 Metacritic score.)
  9. I'll continue to play more belting eShop games than retail ones, with my Switch top 25 getting more eShop releases added to it than new games (regarding games released in 2021).
  10. In the nth of several recycled projections from 2020, the post-Switch machine finally makes its first tentative appearance.



Post yours if you fancy it!  Also, carrying over Kriken's below, unless they want to repost theirs.
