Best Guess

Many games are marked as a best guess. Some guesses are worse than others. Below is a list of the types of guesses that can be on this page.

 

Best Guess (BG): At least one magazine or newsletter mentioned the month a game was released or supposed to be released.

 

Extreme Best Guess (EBG): A vague mention of the release month in a magazine or newsletter.

 

Super Extreme Best Guess (SEBG): The Video Game Update newsletter only had a review for the game (no release month mentioned), so it's a semi-educated wild guess. The review could have happened the same month the game was released or the review could have been published a month or more later.

 

Desperate Super Extreme Best Guess (DSEBG): There might be an ad in a magazine to go on if we're lucky. It's a desperate semi-educated wild guess.
