That Fifa prediction is on a par with picking The Last of Us Part 1 in the Fantasy League.

This was a shite year for my predictions. Let's get them out of the way.

Balladeer wrote:
  1. Finally we get the stonking year for Nintendo that the pandemic has delayed.  They have four games that I give 8/10, and at least one 9/10. Nintendo had a bollocks year for me. I'm not a Splatoon or Bayo head, I liked Kirby less than many, and their big Christmas game was only better than average. In the end we had one 8/10 and one 9, so nowhere close.
  2. BotW2 comes out this year.  At this stage that's enough of a gamble to be an entire prediction for me.  (Also 'it's going to be good' isn't exactly sticking my neck out.) WRONG
  3. Pokémon Legends Arceus is good, but rushed by the geniuses at Game Freak isn't quite as good as it should be.  77-86 Metascore.  83, although the rushed part belongs more to its follow-up.
  4. Kirbypocalypse is quite generic outside its 3D wrapper.  72-81 Metascore. I mean, I agree with this, but Metacritic loved it and gave it 85.
  5. We see a CGI trailer for Metroid Prime 4 with at most a few seconds of gameplay.  We did not.
  6. Go on, I'll play this again.  New non-porty Mario of some kind.  It's got to happen this year, right?  Got to. It did not.
  7. We also see an all-new game from Mario's friend Donkey Kong. We did not.
  8. 2022 sees generation 9 of Pokémon formally announced, but not released.  Half a point only if released, but I think we'd have heard something about it by now. Half a point it is. We also saw why it shouldn't have been released this year.
  9. Nintendo adds the Game Boy to Switch Online.  Not the GBA.  Internet loses it. Added neither. Half a point for GBA I guess.
  10. A bold pick for last: we see some sort of non-Switch Online 2D Zelda game.  Could be all-new or a remake/remaster.  I reckon it's been long enough since the last all-new one that this is possible.  Half a mark if we see an indie collaboration. Bold = wrong.

2/10. Miserable. The discrepancy between that first prediction and the reality kind of sums it up.

It's time for the 2023 edition of this from me masofdas

1. No New Hardware from Nintendo comes out. A Special Edition System wouldn't count but a Switch OLED Lite would count as new hardware
2. EA Sports FC on Switch is somehow still FIFA from 7 years ago
3. Kid Icarus Returns
4. More than one Zelda Universe game comes out. I've still got hope for WWHD port
5. New Mario game, which is kinda tied to the movie maybe in terms of plot
6. Metroid Prime 4 is still MIA
7. Half-Life Alyx is announced for PSVR2
8. Konami bring back Metal Gear. I'm thinking a remaster collection or a remake but could be a new pachinko machine
9. The Last of Us Part II gets a PS5 directors cut, the BETA for Factions (Multiplayer game) is bundled in
10. PlayStation Plus at any level gets less than 10 Day One games
11. Xbox Game Studios release at least 5 games. I'm thinking we will get Forza Motorsport, Redfall and Starfield at least then just two more unfortunately can't think what they would be
12. Valve doesn't release a game with a 3 on the end
13. Persona 6 is announced has a female lead
14. Kingdom Hearts IV is shown again and has Star Wars stuff
15. Some sort of core Pokémon Game in 2023 maybe a B&W Remaster or Let's Go 2
16. New Xbox Hardware comes out
17. Another system added to NSO Expansion. Hoping for GBA
18. Square Enix release over 35 games, I will be counting ports, like in 2022 https://www.gamesasylum.com/2022/12/20/how-many-rpgs-did-square-enix-release-this-year-exactly/.
19. Embracer Group buys at least two studios
20. PS4 and Switch both pass the GameBoy for units sold
21. DS and 3DS like nostalgia/revival from Nintendo this year. I'm predicting this and not 100% sure what I mean but if my Kid Icarus prediction right, and we see I don't know Ever Oasis 2 along with my B&W Remaster etc that sort of thing feel we're getting a bit of DS/3DS love
22. A Mario Sports game. I'm feeling basketball
23. I buy a PSVR2. Even though it's super spenny and it has like 2 games I want to play on it.

Mas deprived of his annual 'FIFA will be a legacy edition' surefire win, is it? Tongue Right, let's have a crack, they can't be any worse than last year.  (They can be Balla, a whole two points worse, this is hubris and you know it.)

1. TotK doesn't rank quite as high as it should because everybody is complaining about reused environments and how it's not as revolutionary as the game that came before it.  Buska explodes.  (Measured by a maximum of 94 on Metacritic.  Buska explodes, again.)
2. Fire Emblem Engage is mediocre compared to Three Houses.  (Maximum of 84 on Metacritic, 5 marks below 3H.)
3. We finally see our second trailer for Metroid Prime 4.  It's not coming out this year though.
4. Pikmin 4 comes out this year, and sells the most in the series.
5. Our Pokémon spin-off of the year isn't one that uses the main battling system.  So no Let's Go, Legends 2, BW remake, or Stadium 3.  (Of course we still get a spin-off.)
6. Go on, I'll play this again again.  New non-porty Mario of some kind.  It's got to happen this year, right?  Got to.  (Yes, I said just this last year.)
JRPG Round
7. Ys X runs like rubbish on Switch, according to me.  Not the foregone conclusion this may seem, I thought IX ran fine.
8. I give Octopath Traveller 2 a 7.  Half a mark for an 8.
9. At least one more Voice of Cards game comes out, and it still gets above 70 Metascore for some reason.Rolling Eyes
And Finally
10. This year we finally get our first murmurings about the Switch 2.  A code name's enough.  It won't release this year though.

Umm "EA Sports FC on Switch is somehow still FIFA from 7 years ago"

I think you'll be right about TotK, but I'll somehow love it because it's gone back to dungeons etc

Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, but I think that's less a surefire win than it has been in previous yeeeeeeeaaaaah as I started typing this out I realised what an idiot I was being. Duh!
