It's a well known fact that gamers are bad at predictions. Let's prove this stereotype right again for the fifth year running with our predictions about what will happen in 2015, so we can come back to this thread next year and laugh at how completely dumb we are about everything.
What do you think will happen in 2015? The topic is Games and Gaming
, but don't feel that you have to limit yourself to that if you have a burning prediction in some other field you KNOW will happen (it won't.)Make your predictions in this thread by January 19!
Just so you can see how badly we did in prior years:2010 Predictions
Worst prediction of 2010, in hindsight: "The Spider-Man musical will win several Tony awards."2011 Predictions
Worst prediction of 2011, in hindsight: "Kickstarter will lose steam, as enough people have been burned by paying for projects and not getting anything out of it."2012 Predictions
Worst prediction of 2012, in hindsight: "Adamant's Buckaroo Banzai will be a complete sell out at Gencon."2013 Predictions
Worst prediction of 2013, in hindsight: "Boxed sets and stapled booklets will gradually come to dominate RPGs again. Case-bound paperback books will seem weird by 2014, if they aren't already. Fancy hardcovers will seem like those foil comics from the 1990s."2014 Predictions
My hindsight's not that good yet.
* Saying "Pathfinder Online won't launch" isn't a prediction until the year they set a release date. You CAN predict that Pathfinder Online WILL launch if you want, but you'll be wrong, because it won't.
* Saying "Adamant Entertainment won't release ______________" is not a prediction.
Tip: Remember that if your prediction is vague, you have more room to wheedle and whine about whether or not you were right (you weren't). But if your prediction is specific it's more likely we'll be able to tell that you nailed it.
