    Actually I thought according to most people AAA had more to do with the amount of money that was pumped into a game and less with the actual quality.

    I guess most people would be wrong then, because money does not directly correlate to quality...at all.
    EDIT: Well, it does a bit. Obviously indy games would be even more fantastically amazing if they had a 1mill budget. But... you know what I mean. Somethin can be fantastic even on a small budget.

    I don't mean money = quality, I mean AAA means money was put in, not necessarily a good game. Like a crappy big budget game can be AAA but a very good indie game isn't, it's indie. It doesn't really matter, I guess, but that's what I thought.

    Half of these games probably won't release this year. To name a few, last year's list had gta 5, the last guardian, arma 3 and bioshock infinite slated for release

    I wouldn't say indie games would be better on a bigger budget, in fact the smaller budget makes more constraints and constraints breed innovation. When you're given a box you are pressured more to think outside it.

    True that.
    I think some could have been a lot more expanded upon with more manpower, but I suppose thinking now...more manpower doesn't have to = bigger budget.

    Yeah, the luckier indie devs get picked up by a big publisher and get a little more to work with. Usually that results in a better game without giving them no desire to push the boundaries.

    Well, Bioshock WAS supposed to be released this year. But The Last Guardian, I think that had an actual launch window stated at an E3 until well.. the game is MIA.

    Not too pumped about anything.
    Seems like a good year for backtracking in my games library for my Wii, 360 and PS2 (Must finish Skyward Sword and Final Fantasy 12).

    Might buy an occasional PC-game if something interesting shows up on the horizon. But right now, nothing for my tastes.

    EDIT: Dead Space 3 is coming my way! And I think we can hope for Fallout-news during this year.
