No offence, but goddammit, what a twisted view of what an AAA game, or rather a high profile game, should be.Honestly, there is not much to say to out other than everything you just said is wrong.Being a high profile game is not about burning money on a game that dosent require such investment to be the best it can, rather that the developer thats behind it gives the best it can, effort or monetary, that the game needs to be the best it can.In another words, the game couldnt be better than that, for the type of game the creators invisioned it, even if the budget was twice the size.Of course some Nintendo games could use the extra budget, but Mario Oddyssey, BOTW, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Smash Ultimate, Splatoon 2, Mario Tennis Aces and so on are all "AAA" games.Even second party games or third party exclusives, like Mario + Rabbids and Octopath are AAA(even if I can see the case of Octopath being an AA game)
And honestly, do you even care if a game is AAA, AA or indie if its an excellent game?I give two fucks if a game had a higher budget or not as long as Im getting the best game that developer could make.
AAA is an acronym for A lot of money, A lot of resources, A lot of time; it’s basically the videogame version of a blockbuster - and like blockbusters, just because Vertigo and Casablanca are two of the most critically acclaimed films of all time, does not make them blockbusters. You may not like it, but your alternate definition is simply not correct. I bet you’re one of the guys who tried to argue Metroid and Ocarina of Time as RPGs as well.Last edited by Jumpin - on 18 June 2018
