Summer's a wonderful time of year. There are barbeques to be had, long naps to take, and a huge backlog of games to catch up on while we wait for the magical AAA dump truck to come around, just as it does every October. But summer's also a pretty hot time of year. Now, we could just go hop in a pool to cool off, but our frail, gross bodies aren't exactly fond of the water. Nor are our fingers of water levels.
The best water levels are arguably ones that don't affect the way a game plays: At least then great games aren't crippled by sluggish controls and a totally-not-fun air timer. In any case, we thought it time to revisit a ClassicRadar piece written by alumni Brett Elston about the most ill-conceived idea to ever fall our beloved medium, with a few new additions to keep things feeling fresh. Prepare to take a dip in the worst water levels games have to offer.
