Buddies on Boats

There's nothing quite like messing around on the water in a boat. It's even more fun if you can do it with a friend. As in life, so also in video games. The combination of seafaring (or river-faring) and cooperative challenges works really well.

This list of games (inspired by Brad Gallaway) is all the games you can play with someone else where you get to indulge your love of water.

This list includes 11 games from the last 5 years, with 801 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to mess about in boats.
