Also how much money does it take to reach the AAA category?

What a gross and excessive waste of money just for a video game.

People who gave them money should feel ashamed. Think of all the good they could have done with that money.

For example: If you gave every person in the US who was me $27 million dollars I would have $27 million dollars.

No, I mean because I want to start game development with some friends I made who know coding, I'm not good at coding, but I am the artist.

Because you're a pessimistic downer.

If you had any half decent idea of why it would flop hard, you'd already know it due to thinking your thoughts through and such.
