The rules are simple. Try to predict the Metacritic scores of the 10 games listed below coming out this Spring. Accuracy is what matters, so the closer you are, the fewer points you get. At the end of the contest, the person with the fewest points wins! Need an example?
Say your prediction is Devil May Cry V is going to get a Metacritic score of 85 and the actual score ends up being 89. You would receive four points. If you had predicted 88, you would receive one point. So, the person who scores the lowest total number of points has the most accurate predictions and will be the winner of the contest!

Extraneous Questions and Clarifications:
Why is Yoshi’s Crafted World a tie-breaker? We had already decided on the 10 games for the contest before Nintendo announced the release date. We were happy with our list, but wanted to include a Nintendo exclusive since we had one for PlayStation and Xbox. So, we added it as a tie breaker.
So I should still submit a score for Yoshi’s Crafted World? Yes.
How often will you do an update? We will likely give a big update near the middle of the contest, and then we will do a show where we review how everything shook out.
What if I win and don’t want any of the games on the list? We will work together to find an equitable gaming related prize for you.
If the game is multi-platform, what score will you use? The PS4 score.
