15. Re: Ubisoft Making Fewer AAA Games Sep 13, 2012, 13:58 Prez

The term AAA just means the budget is so high, if the game doesn't sell a bazzilion copies then the publisher takes a massive financial hit.

That's close to my definition of AAA. To me "AAA Game" more often than not signifies a game with ridiculous, out-of-control production costs with utterly massive advertising budgets. It has almost nothing to do with quality any more. That's not to say that there haven't been some "AAA" games released in recent years that I loved; but nowadays to me slapping the "AAA" tag on a game description doesn't mean anything beyond "we threw a boatload of money at this and if it doesn't sell huge we're sunk".
