I'm a bit iffy on the term "AA". To me that suggests just a step below AAA, so something like Splatoon 2 or Xenoblade 2.

A lot of games people label as "AA" I'd more call a "B" game.

I'd easily qualify both of these as AAA though.

Though I already expect every definitions of "AAA" to be somewhat personal to each individual so there's no problem for anyone else to think otherwise.

But I digress, I'll give some diverse examples of what I think qualify to the "AA" rank :

- Fire Emblem 3DS games

- Octopath Traveler 

- Captain Toad

- Plague Tale

- Yoshi's Crafted World

- Super Mario 3D Land

All of those I would call AA games. In general if the core dev team is bigger than 15 people, or the budget is bigger than a hundred thousand, I would call it AA. I'm not sure what the average AAA budget is though.
