Consider yourself lucky if you have access to AAA games. If this is the first time you hear about the term, AAA games is a classification used in the video gaming industry to signify high-profile, high-budget games that are usually produced and distributed by larger, more well-known publishers. When you look for and buy these types of games from the store, they will also usually be more expensive. 

All the games released by mid-sized and major game developers worldwide are called AAA games or triple-A games. 

In other words, any game released by big developers like Rockstar Games, Ubisoft, Naughty Dog, CD Projekt Red, and other significant brands is considered an AAA title. Every AAA game has a massive budget and is published by the major developers. 

On the contrary, games published by small-time developers are referred to as indie games. If you are into RPG stuff, then you have probably heard of them. 

For instance, the game Among Us is an indie title. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or PUBG is also not considered an AAA game. 

On the other hand, Minecraft has once been an indie game, but after Microsoft took over, it has been recognized as an AAA game ever since. 

Without further ado, here are 15 of the best AAA games you should be playing right now.
