By pirate I mean this not bootleg games, of course :) I love pirates and I've got quite a good selection of piratey games, I just wondered what you guys thought the best pirate game was? I'd personally go with Sid Meiers Pirates! or Tropico 2 - Pirate Cove, cause they're my favourites, There's loads out there, if you could advise I stay away from some that'd also be appreciated :)

depends on a genre :)

Best pirate strategy game: Port Royale 2

Best pirate RPG- Pirates of Carribean with all the mods (they turn the game from meh to awesome)

Best pirate adventure game - Monkey Island 2

The original Pirates! or the Secret of Monkey Island. I can't really choose.

Monkey Island is pretty good.

In terms of doing piratey things I would have to go with Sid Meier's Pirates! The remake of course, I never had the lucky chance to play the original.

I would have to go with Sid Meier's Pirates as well as far as the best. One of my personal favorites though is Pirates - The Legend of the Black Kat. Not the greatest game but I had a great deal of fun with it and I really liked the main character Katerina de Leon.


I always hoped that they would make an improved sequel but instead they made a game based on the character Jack Sparrow a few years later. Ah well...

for me it would be sid meiers pirates for regular pirate stuff but i seen one post that was skies of arcadia and if sky pirates count then that would be the best pirate game for me :)

Sid Meiers Pirates is my favorite pirate game, and in my opinion, the best.

Monkey Island 2 gets my vote, although if we're talking about pirate sims, then Cutthroats was probably my favourite (despite the terrible reviews).

I'm in the process of watching the series again as well as crafting a new sig and more complex avatar. I'm glad to see that people still remember the show. It is one of my favourites.

Rogue Galaxy is a Space Pirate RPG. I've not played it, but i've heard it is pretty good.

Old doesn't matter. Fun is fun. And MI is FUN! A game that's not a pirate game, but had amazingly fun pirate action in it was Sly 3. I posted in my review that all pirate games should take a note from the pirate levels in this game. If Sucker Punch came out with a Theives of the Sea game, I would pick it up.

Yeah, I love Monkey Island, I've only played Escape From Monkey Island recently though, I'm going to look into buying Curse of Monkey Island :D It's good to see some games I don't recognise, I'll definitely check them out :)Stoufzilla

I hope that you mean that you own the other MI games, but have only played Escape from Monkey Island recently...because if you've only played EMI, I feel sorry for you.:?
