    I really hate "AAA". I mainly don't like how it seemed to spring up over the last few years and I've seen no one use it ironically since.

    With you on SKU and AAA. SKU is a perfectly good term for managing stock, which has been misused. AAA (etc) is so ill-defined as to be almost meaningless.

    Franchise and IP are well defined and useful, though.

    AAA has been used for years. I remember Final Fantasy games on the PS1 refered to as AAA games and it was probably around before then.

    First Person Shooter. Such a misnomer. Not one has involved Adam at all.
  • Deleted user 27 February 2013 16:37:06
    Game used as a verb is one that needs to fuck off, to be honest.

    "I'm gonna go home and game"

    "I've gamed since year X"

    etc etc.

    Certainly a unique selling point to your view.

    What is more hateful?
    "core gamer" or "hardcore gamer"?
