    lol you really life in another universe german wikipedia about counterstrike:

    "Seit der Veröffentlichung von Version 1.0 am 8. November 2000 war Counter-Strike über zehn Jahre lang eines der populärsten und meistgespielten Online-Actionspiele und das meistgespielte Spiel im E-Sport. "
    and translated to english: "Since the release of version 1.0 on 8 November 2000, Counter-Strike for over ten years, one of the most popular and most played online action games and the most played game in e-sports."

    and if the most popular game is not a AAA game then then the earth isn't real at all.

      If the target isn't reached, i would hope they would refund all the donations collected. Otherwise, they would be scum of the earth if they kept the money.

          Nope, mods are mods.

          Yeah, really.

          Farmville has more players.

          LOL.... this prove it you life in another universe.

          Farmville is more popular. By your logic Farmville is a AAA game.

            All this infighting is irrelevant now, as the game has been funded! Congrats to the Linux community for financially supporting such an awesome project. I can't wait to play it!

              maybe pong isn't a AAA game today "2012" but its the same with ETQW in a 2012 point of view ETQW isn't a AAA game.
              AAA games didn't exist back in 1972. The entire games industry barely existed.

              Maybe the definition of what was a big game back then was different, but that doesn't matter. We're all using today's accepted definition, not whatever was happening 100 years ago or in the alternate universe Q's brain comes from.

              Practically every Flash based game in existence today would be a AAA game according to your warped perspective. They all get way more than 100,000 users or whatever you are going on about.

                      I've already pledged, hopefully there's a big bump in the amount of funding in the final hours. I'll be keeping a close eye on it.

                        I think you misunderstand the market. The AAA games market is not filled at all, and not with dreck.

                        There are more than 600 million games sold each year (actually 609,081,306).

                        Here are some stats for 2011 (http://www.vgchartz.com/yearly/2011/Global/)

                        Global Software by Platform
                        Platform Yearly (change) [share]

                        PS3 148409212 (+13%) [0.244]
                        Wii 135651642 (-26%) [0.223]

                        PSV 425230 (++89%) [0.001]

                        PC, i.e. Windows has a seventh (7th) place in games with less than 5% of the market.

                        In this relatively small market the best selling PC games of all time are found here http://www.vgchartz.com/gamedb/?name...=0&results=200

                          Guys just shut the fuck up about those AAA titles.
                          We don't give a fuck.
                          The topic was about Carmageddon Reincarnation coming to Linux.
                          They just confirmed the Linux and Mac version even if they don't make the 600k within the remaining 14 hours.
                          It's a fun game to have on Linux, so now is your time to throw in a few bucks if you didn't pledged yet.

                          Especially the ones who are always bitching about why every new Linux game must be a FPS/cheap rpg/puzzle game.

                            Of that list, only Portal 2 and FO:NV are worth paying full price for. The rest are over-hyped schlock.

                                My personal opinions only, but of your list I shall divide them into games I like, and games I don't.

                                It's a sad list you put there, mainly because you took it off the top sellers list. Just because it sells does not make it good. The AAA gaming industry is driven by investors, and as such are largely risk-averse. As a result they keep churning out the same soulless crap over and over again. The indies might be more po-dunk, but at least it's a more interesting market. Experimental games like Dear Eshter would never come out of the AAA market. There's a lot more to gaming than the very narrow field painted by the so-called "AAA"s.

                                Here are two articles from RPS that nicely sums up what that market is:
