Are We Seeing The End of The Triple-A?

4Player-"The Tomb Raider reboot is a gripping experience complete with vibrant, engaging, spectacular hair physics, and the general consensus is that the game is the fresh start the series truly needed.

More like the start of triple A

who came up with that classification? You figure every developer has a genuine belief that their game is AAA material. But the reviewers say otherwise. then you have consumers that can prove reviewers wrong.

So when did the whole AAA AA A rating thing come about? And yes, i ask this question because i never followed the letter grading system. I bought games because they interested me not because some reviewer says its the bee's knees.

lol very tru i just saying for "bigger" games it is the start all games are equal in a way we have seen that with Journey and Fez and The Walking Dead which was like a double A until it got big

To my knowledge, an AAA game just has a large budget behind it.

It doesn't have much to do with reviews or the game's actual quality, although, you'd hope a game with a bigger budget to be better than a smaller budget one.

Tomb Raider is by no means an example of the end. It's just an example of why you don't tack on modes for games.

You mean, an example for why not tack on multiplayer.

I've read a few theories and the one that makes the most sense is Square Enix put unrealistic sales projections on Tomb Raider, Hitman Absolution and Sleeping Dogs because of the HUGE amount of money they lost on Final Fantasy 14.

All I'm seeing is a rise in politics and unnecessary labels in gaming journalism and media, which has tricked down to the gaming community itself. It's poison, and it's part of the reason some games can't get out the gate.

uh... no.

@ Ares84HU:

bioshock 2 is a better example of poorly executed, tacked on MP.
