AAA is only a marketing term, it doesn't mean better production values (although that tends to come with it) and it sure as hell doesn't mean mature focused...

AAA is priority software that will be extensively marketed/advertised...

In short AAA is basically short hand for high profile

As i said, that tends to carry with it (though not always) the promise of high production values, and on the ps4 and xbone they are usually mature rated games (being played by 10 year old boys)... But that isn't what qualifies a game as AAA

Wii Sports, for example, was AAA

So by that logic 1-2 switch would also be a AAA title?
It is, that is the point... AAA is a marketing term not a barometer of quality

Hardcore is also a marketing term and did not mean the game is badass, but rather that it is aimed primarily at the core audience of the product

People apply their own logic to it... Like how my mom used to say expresso... She heard espresso, knew it was a string coffee, and so assumed it was a party on the word express... And she isn't alone... People do this a lot... It doesn't mean they aren't wrong

These are marketing terms, and are still used in marketing, it doesn't matter what personal logic you apply to it

I'm not buying it, but given the purely subjective nature of the topic its not like we would go anywhere with this discussion.

Literally people only say this because of anecdotal evidence, which is not an argument. Statistically, this is objectively false.

I think what GaemzDood was talking about originally was this specific part of Mightyme's post:
I probably should have expanded the word size.

But yeah, I wasn't allowed to play M rated games when I was 10. Wanna know the result of that?

A friend of mine made a good point when he said that kids that are exposed to M rated games early on tend to diversify their gaming portfolio, so to speak, later on. For instance, someone that grew up playing science fiction shooters will probably be playing stuff like DoDonPachi and Steins;Gate later on, as well as sci-fi shooters.

Updated. I just found out that INSIDE is coming to Switch, holy hell this is awesome. Nintendo made a great decision to reserve their online store for 3rd parties, it paid off.

About 10 year old playing m rated games

1. Anyone who had played an m rated game online with voice chat knows that little kids are all over them

2. My mom tried from teaching this summer... Before she did she would routinely learn of her kids playing CoD, and many other m rated games... one time she was reading Christmas lists she had them write, and she asks me "what is Scarface? " (referring to the game)... And taught second grade btw

3. We didn't have m rated games when I was a kid, we didn't have game rating at all until I was in like Jr high. I but I clearly remember a summer when I was 10, in which my friend and I watched like every major movie that came out then... We once laughed about how we saw like 15 movies, and all but 1 were rated R. I didn't know a single kid at school that hadn't seen most of the movies we did.

With point #1, during my days of CS1.6, CS: Source, Day of Defeat, Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, Soldier of Fortune 2, and the original Call of Duty, I was sure much younger then, and so were many others, but I don't have much of a memory of many kids playing those games, or at least kids that were using voice chat. Maybe it's simple correlation, but it just seems to me that the post-Halo, and post-COD online has more kids on it, plus ones that'll use voice chat more. Part of that I think stems from the online console generation, which has made playing online much more accessible for the masses compared to years past. It's not to say playing online on PC was a difficult task by any means, but I feel more kids bought consoles, and more adults played PC (including High School). Again though, maybe simple correlation, and not causation.

I became a bad uncle several years ago when my 13 year old nephew convinced my brother to buy him GTA (don't remember what number). My brother bought it without thinking. We went over to visit a few weeks later and my nephew was playing it and his younger sister was watching. I proceeded to tell my brother that the content may not be appropriate for the age of his children. He did some research, but said "Eh, it'll be fine." My parents overheard and my dad googled the game. Then proceeded to tell my brother that those games were "not appropriate for his grandchildren to be playing" and that he "needed to take that damn game away". My brother did like being told how to parent from his father or me, but with the pressure from my dad, he told them they couldn't play the game any more. I know it's a game, but I've always been one that once to preserve kid's innocence as long as possible. May be futile, but I try.

So yeah, I was not the favorite uncle for awhile.

I played the original GTA as well as GTA2 back in those days when I was in Middle school, followed by GTA3 when I reached high school. Your nephews will be fine, and you are not a bad uncle. The kid is almost in High School. An interactive means of entertainment with the use of controlling a fictional character won't hurt your nephew. :mthumb:

So.....you're basing your claims off of anecdotal evidence.

What parts are you questioning though? Little kids like to play M rated games because, "it's cool." The rating system didn't come about until the mid 90s (1994 to be exact), and it is also true that kids wanted to see most of the R rated movies of the time. Hell, I remember when I did not even watch South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut for years, nor Saving Private Ryan when they first came out, even though I knew lots of people who did see it, just as two examples.

well I guess neither of us have funded a multi-million dollar limited access survey in a formal setting... so our own experiences are useless, even though they directly back-up an accepted viewpoint... but we have no merit to say so against somebody who has done even less to prove their point then we have, a point running contrary to the accepted viewpoint

Pretty much. Any sort of anecdotal evidence can never be used as the basis for an argument. Clearly.

Well as I posted above, there is an empirical case of proof that a majority of GTA players are married middle aged men, not kids. So in that instance, anecdotal evidence doesn't apply.

Same with Call of Duty. The average competitive COD player is a lot older than you realize.

Anecdotal evidence is not an argument.

BRAWL, a horror themed Bomberman clone originally exclusive to the PS4, just came out on Switch. It's made by Poles too (also the guys who did Observer and Layers of Fear), so that means it's worth supporting. Support the based Poles.

This is the Police 2 was announced for Switch. Considering that, in the past, follow ups to 3rd party games on Nintendo systems don't hit said Nintendo systems due to poor sales of previous entries, this makes me assume that This is the Police sold well on Switch, which I'm happy about.



Also, Steins;Gate, one of the best visual novels in years, is coming.

The Town of Light and Victor Vran are coming to Switch. If the rumors about Diablo III are true, I hope Victor Vran sells well too. It's one of the best loot em ups out there and it's also super well optimized.

This seems like a good time for competition. Titan Quest, Victor Vran, Diablo III.

Added a bunch of new games.

Some of them include Immortal Redneck (roguelike shooter that's actually good), Late Shift (FMV adventure game that's actually really good, especially when you consider the last one we got was Darkstar...), sequels to A Normal Lost Phone and The Men of Yoshiwara, and Garage.

Holy crap, this list is huge now. This amount of good games being released in the first year alone has never happened in the history of a modern Nintendo console. If this is Iwata's legacy, then he went out with a bang.

A AAA title on the Switch would be Zelda Breath Of the Wild and Smash Bros Ultimate. I am guessing. Having only tried one of those two so far.
