Gaming’s favourite prop rated by our resident cooper
City Of Brass This is unrealistic: a whip could never destroy the thick hide of a barrel, they’d shrug it off as though it were nothing more than a mere fly. Red Dead Redemption 2 It’s disgusting that some people think that our cask-like friends don’t feel anything. Sometimes they witness some truly… unsavoury behaviour. Raging Justice Why do boring crates get pride of place in Raging Justice while the humble barrel is pushed to the background? A travesty. No one puts baby in the corner. Conker’s Bad Fur Day A prime example of a retro classic reborn to live another day. Even older kegs can clean up well after a bit of 4K spit and polish. Gears Of War 3 Some may confuse this object with a canister, but it’s actually what barrels look like many years from now. I look forward to those smooth, smooth lines.
