1ST PLACE: zero 62

JOINT 2ND: jacksrb and TriforceBun 26
3RD: Octorockin 24
4TH: Stephen 20

Abdooooo 18

sirmastersephiroth 14
Griptor 10
Super_Conzo 8
CPAWei 6
anon_mastermind 6

Secret_Tunnel 4
Smerd -2
vinniebrock -6
Brick -6
nate38 -26
canonj -32
grantimusprime -34
TheBigG753 -40
Jargon -48
chrisguy -52
Shadowlink -50
Mr_Mustache -52
missypissy -52
Pokefreak911 -54
infinitywave -58
legendofalex -58
DrFinkelstein -60
-JKR- -150



- The maximum possible score this year was 88 points and the worst possible was -208. A monkey guessing at random would be tend to score -60 but in practice we averaged -17. Look how smart we are.

- The "It's a Trap!" award goes to the Metroid franchise which suckered many of us into negative points.

- 2014's Eternal Optimist is infinitywave for making the most predictions: 24

- The wrong answer that was picked most often was: "Mario Kart track/mode/character DLC"- 21 times. Mario Kart is getting some kind of Amiibo support but we don't know what that entails, so no confirmation!

- No megatons in the quiz this year. But the consensus seems to be Nintendo had the strongest show in a long time with polished games, new IP and real surprises.


Thanks to everyone for playing!

Is this some sick joke?! I always do terrible on these things!

BTW did I get my bonus points for Star Fox?!

Posted: 06/14/14, 18:33:48
I sucked this year. Do I get points for predicting you were going to win?

Posted: 06/14/14, 18:40:08
Made the top 10! I can dig that.
Well done ye winners.
Posted: 06/14/14, 20:27:45
Tried to go safe, ended up losing big AGAIN! Fuck you Metroid and QOL platform.
Posted: 06/14/14, 20:52:35
Hah, my conservative guesses ended up doing surprisingly well.
Posted: 06/14/14, 21:53:42
7th place ain't so bad, at least I got into the positives. I didn't know what "no graphs" and "Reggie meme" meant so I didn't choose them. I could have gotten a bit higher if I thought about it a little more, but oh well.
Posted: 06/14/14, 22:46:31
BOOM. That's a victory in my eyes. If you ain't first, you're last, but I'm FIRST PLACE LAST.

Are you calling me a Random-Picking Monkey!?!?

Next year I'm going to try to get the best possible lowest score.

No!!! That's not what I was implying at all. Sorry. I'm saying you're no better than a Random-Picking Monkey.

Freakin' Metroid.


--Also, Zero has proven that the later you turn your sheet in, the better. He picked Star Fox BECAUSE of an uber-late leak on that Time article. TERRIBLE.

hm, I never saw the original 2014 prediction thread
Posted: 06/15/14, 01:27:24
Bah, no QOL or Majora screwed me out of second. Was Zero the only one crazy enough to predict Star Fox?
Posted: 06/15/14, 07:05:35
Yes!! I'll take positive points and like it!
Posted: 06/26/14, 18:15:31
Second place! Whoot!

Thanks as always for doing this. One of my favorite things about E3.
Posted: 06/27/14, 18:29:01
Well, I surprisingly didn't come in last. So there's that!
Posted: 06/27/14, 19:09:41
The GameCube, Wii, Gameboy Advance, and DS all had two Metroid titles each come out during their lifespans. I figured there HAD to be a Metroid game announced for one of the two newer systems. We're 2 or 3 years in, maybe a quarter to a third of the way through the generation, and not a sniff of a Metroid title. How?
Posted: 06/27/14, 23:03:47
I'll take a solid 4th place.
