The Daily Grind: Are there any quadruple-A MMOs?


Ubisoft made headlines earlier this week for claiming to investors that the high pricetag for Skull & Bones was justified because it’s a vast, complete, and “full-fledged” game – a “full triple-A, quadruple-A game that will deliver in the long run.” It raised… pretty much all the eyebrows everywhere. S&B looks fine enough to me, but fam, this game was delayed seven times and has obvious weaknesses. It’s not the worst game-as-a-service title I’ve ever seen, but there’s absolutely nothing about it that suggests to me it deserves $60 in a world where there are so many equally good or super online RPGs. Which I guess is why I didn’t buy it.

But I want to discuss the idea of a $60-$90 “quadruple-A” MMO anyway. I suspect it would be hard to even achieve consensus on which MMOs count as AAA MMOs, but what about AAAA – do we have any? Which MMOs should be on that shortlist, and does S&B come close to touching them?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
