Six Of The Best… Boats

Stick to the seas with ves­sels that tug on the heart­strings with­out turn­ing the stom­ach

Games Master - - RETRO MASTER -

What is it about these ocean-skim­ming cre­ations that make them so in­spir­ing? Maybe it’s the fact they’re the height of lux­ury to some, tes­ta­ments to a deca­dence that land­lub­bers will never know. Or per­haps it’s that you don’t re­ally know pain un­til you’re on the choppy seas, sway­ing to and fro, try­ing to stand up up­right and keep the con­tents of your stom­ach in­side it. Clearly the an­swer is in the du­al­ity. They’re both plea­sure and pain si­mul­ta­ne­ously but, nat­u­rally, this is hard to repli­cate in a game. What makes our six su­perb ships so nau­ti­cally nice is that they’re bloody good fun re­gard­less of the fact you are likely play­ing them on stom­ach-friendly dry land. So grab a wet­suit and a rub­ber ring as we board this col­lec­tion of ves­sels.
