What are AAA titles?
High-quality games with high budget.
There is a debate that takes into considering several aspects that AAA titles should have. Some of the most common qualities that AAA titles should have (according to some experts) are:
– Broad market
– High sales
– Large teams
– Big budget
– Polished audio-visual direction
– Perfect technical and artistic execution
– Playable & fully enjoyable within the first five minutes of play
– Exhaustively tested
– Bug free
– Great usability
– Continous, balanced entertainment from beginning to end
– Great graphical user interface
– First place in the markets, and great marketing
Some of the qualities are more arguable than others (like playability in 5 minutes). Some argue whether AAA titles should have certain budget or certain amount of sales.
In general, AAA refers to a game of the highest quality.
