        5 million $ is more than enough to pack a AAA game. If they continue packing amateurish and average games then the humble bundle will likely lose most of its steam in the mid term.

            amateurish?

            What games are amateurish? Amnesia, Bastion and Limbo are very,very good games. Psychonauts is a bit buggy (sound sometimes stopping/crashing sometimes). What's amateurish?

                Well bundle sort of indicates that is is multiple and not just one game, besides the average payment is around 8$ and theres no garanty that the same would be payed if there is just one game.

                    Do you even have a clue what a real tripple A game means?

                    By your logic "Tetris" qualifies as AAA since it had lots of market share for ages, awards and fans across all countries. But it doesn't make it AAA.

                    Hence, AAA means stuff like Call of Duty, Left4Dead, you name it. Show me such a sophisticated and high quality game and I'll give in, for now the Humble Bundle packs a range amateurish & average stuff - which doesn't mean it's uncool to play (even tetris is fun for lots of folks).
