You see those little jaggy lines when things are supposed to be straight (such as handrails or the legs/edges of tables)? Do you notice how they're extremely jagged with no real definition? That's aliasing

Anti aliasing tries to solve the problem by filling in the missing edges with softly shaded pixels that match/blend into the background. It reduces the intensity of the jaggies and makes the game look a lot better, but at the price of some fps.
