As we do every year, today we’re going to peek back at the horrifying outcomes of last year’s MOP staff predictions for the genre and the games within it to determine how well we did. After all, what would be the fun of making predictions if we couldn’t giggle over our guesses a year later? So did we nail it or fail it? And did you fare better? Let’s find out.
