What does "AAA" mean and how can I tell if a game is "AAA" or "AA"?

If it takes those really little cylindrical batteries (the kind that it takes 4 of to fill a TV remote) it's AAA.

If it takes the larger batteries (the kind that it only takes 2 of to fill a TV remote) it's AA.

AAA = big budget, that's all. There is no AA or A since AAA is a pseudo-rank just like B movies = low budget campy films.

AAA just means it's a game hipsters will hate.

AAA pretty much just refers to a high budget game.

So basically if its a known game its an automatic "AAA" title?


No.

Minecraft is not AAA, for example.



Eh..depends on the definition of 'known'. Minecraft is known by certain niches. However, if we're being as elastic as to say that any game that is known by at least one person, then it is considered known...then yes Minecraft is as known as CoD: modern war of blacks ops elite edition 2. However, if we're defining known as everyone and their grandma knows of it, then no Minecraft isn't known.

A AAA games means a game that you played over and over again and really enjoyed it no matter what others say. A AA games is a game with anti-aliasing. just play your AAA games and don't look for the stupid review.

First A = Development budget, usually spent solely on graphical assets, casting actual actors to do voices, and licensing MPAA music for the soundtrack.

Second A = Marketing budget. If you tell people something is going to be awesome for long enough, many of them will start to believe it.

Third A = Hype. After the marketing money has done its job, the game needs proselytizers among gamers and/or the gaming media to bring everything home.
