Star Traders will surely show in the the “bonus round” by freelancers, but I think it has almost not shot at the main list, sorry
Of the six remaining picks, Into The Breach and Slay the Spire are givens, I think Obra Din is an almost-sure-thing (the only reason it wouldn’t make it is if too many staff waited till after the votes had closed).
I actually thought it was likely FF XV would get in just due to love from Katherine and some Alices; it’s possible it got “negotiated off” due to its combination of deep flaws, not being a true 2018 game, whatever. But I still think it will appear. Ni No Kuni II and Dragon Quest XI, not so much; I knew putting three JRPGs was foolhardy.
I also think Minit will squeeze in, and I think Rimworld has solid odds. But Hitman 2 seems like it should feature also?
So if I was a betting man favoring my own picks, I’d say next six (not in order) are Hitman 2, Minit, Return of the Obra Din, FF XV, Into the Breach, and Slay the Spire.
Given how closes the lists are, there is basically no way we’re going to end with anything less than a two-person tie unless they go REALLY crazy with a couple picks. So I hope you picked the proper switch games! (Though remember I am not actually in competition, so if you tie with me and only me, you win!)
