Good luck everyone and choose wisely!

Team Rules

- Each team must have at least four platforms represented in their picks.
- Each team must have at least one portable/handheld/mobile game.
- Each team can only have one game per franchise.

It's on my shelf, still sealed. I have a hunch that I'm going to skip RDR2 for a while and play drafted games that I haven't got around to instead.

I debated picking this one, but the "original console release" threw me for a loop. If I could've picked Remastered, then I definitely would have done that. As I never played the PS3 version, I didn't want to pick something that was potentially glitchy or not as amazing with lower-res graphics.
