AAA games are just shovelware with a huge advertising budget

I only have to compare Skyrim to older games like Morrowind as testament to it.

This makes zero sense because Morrowind was AAA at one time as well.


Yet it wasn't designed for FPS kiddies....

The following logic is present in this topic:

"I like Morrowind better than Skyrim, so all AAA games are shovelware."


Also, "Most of these AAA Shovel-ware games aren't coming to the Wii U, so they are bad games."

How do you think people would react if Nintendo decided to shove dating sim elements or rhythm dancing mechanics into the New Super Mario Bros. games just make them "more accessible?" This is what is happening with Western games these days thanks to all the shooters; they'd rather butcher their games by copying Activision's success and then throw their established customer base under the bus. Same with most Japanese companies trying to be "Western."

Cod is the shovelware of the sea.


I prefer haddock, really.

Still not as bad as pike, though. Ugh.
Or mackerel.

Shovelware by definition is the complete opposite of AAA. You defeat the purpose of shovelware by giving it an obscenely high budget.

AAA like COD, Batman, Tales of, Street Fighter, etc. are annual releases and therefore lack innovation not necessarily quality. Effort did go into porting COD to the Wii U and by Wii U standards, it's pretty damn good.

CoD is the reason so many games are being dumbed down though.
