Whether Sea of Thieves enough content is up for debate, but what isn't debatable in my mind is how amazing this game is at creating heart-pounding moments of adventure.
Tonight I was sailing around islands capturing chickens and pigs for the Merchant's Alliance when I was suddenly overtaken by a tremendous storm. "No big deal, I can weather this one," I thought.
The storm was getting so bad that I just had to start recording. My compass was spinning wildly out of control and my ship was taking on so much water I couldn't keep it bailed fast enough.
I lower my sails but then found myself only spinning in what appeared to be a whirlpool! The tide had risen so much that the island I was going to became engulfed entirely in water!
I eventually caught the window, lower my sails, and got away from the whirlpool when I realized (too late) that my ship had taken on so much water from the waves and elements that I couldn't keep her afloat.
Alas, at least I recovered my chalice.
