5Sea of Thieves
Rare didn’t just dip its toe into the online multiplayer genre, but dove right in. Sea of Thieves is by far the most ambitious title that Rare has ever created, and allows players to live out their childhood pirating dreams. Four pirates take control of their own ship, and take different roles, including: steering, watching out for enemies, and getting drunk – arguably the most important role of all.
Sadly Sea of Thieves doesn’t include enough varied gameplay to avoid the sharks in the water. Naval combat is ridiculously fun, and digging up chests is very rewarding, but there’s just not the variety of gameplay to keep players returning to Sea of Thieves. Despite this, Sea of Thieves is the best chance many of us will get to be a pirate, and that good enough for me.
