5 Best Water Sports Games You Should Dive For



Background music in video games may have you imagining your favorite musicians solving a Rubik’s Cube, characters may give you an identity crisis, storylines may have you wanting to rewrite your own life, and the aesthetics may have you dreaming about it. Recurring events do not pose as a problem in water sports games if they are timelessly fun. 

Leave your video game console on too long, then be forced to hear it overheat (with symptoms like freezing, crashing, restarting, or shut downs), bringing you back to reality. There are few things like somehow escaping the awful troubles of the world, where realistic water can be captured in games, only for the console overheating to kill the mood. Now, it is time to take a look at the 5 best water sports games you should dive for.

5. Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm: 

With a nearly 100-percent crew member injury rate, take on 40-foot waves, storms, and ice, all for undersea riches on the Bering Sea. Select one of five crab boats (including the Northwestern, Cornelia Marie and Sea Star featured in the series) and be the captain. Or customize your own boat. Recruit and lead your crew from a roster of twenty real fishermen (including Edgar and Norman Hansen, Josh and Jake Harris).

4. Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: 

Create your own athlete, prepared to compete between 18 fun-fueled sporting events (like basketball, boxing, tennis, swimming, 100m, and more). Customize their skills and select their costume. Be more unusual than the actual Olympics by dressing up as a cowboy, astronaut, or pirate. 

3. Virtual Surfing: 

Developed and published by Waveor, participate in challenges, where you find out what the judges await from you or where you need to perform certain tricks and combos. Explore different scenery while surfing medium sized and big waves, and perform surfing maneuvers (mostly by just changing the weight distribution of your body above the surfboard). 

2. California Games (1987): 

This game is a collection of different sports ranging from BMX riding, skateboarding, rollerskating, and flying disc. In the surfing stage, maintain a decent speed while performing jumps off the waves, to score points. When you aim your landing slightly wrong, you will plunder in the water, where a shark arrives. Now, that is just living in the moment, if you surf where the sharks are swimming.
