I'm not so PC-game savvy, but there is a new MMORPG (massive multiplayer online role-playing game) that's coming out for computers, and it's called Pirates of the Burning Seas. It's being released by an independant company, and there may be a post on this forum about it a page back. In this game, you create your own character in a world of many players like you, and you create your character's destiny as a pirate, privateer, merchant, etc by the things you do in the game.

Since I'm usually up to date about games, I'll keep you posted if anything pirate-related comes our way.

The official Pirates of the Caribbean game is released on PC, so you may want to check it out. It has nothing to do with the movie, but I hear Kiera Knightley did a voice for it. After all, the game was really Sea Dogs 2, and Disney "comandeered" it for its own enterprising purposes.

Also, the old game Sea Dogs 1 in on PC, as well as games like Escape from Monkey Island, and the fairly good game Pirate Hunter.

1) Secret of Monkey Island

2) Secret of Monkey Island 2

3) Escape from Monkey Island

4) Something more from Monkey Island

5) Pirates!

6) Pirates! Gold

7) Little Pirate (my game, crappy drawn, buggy, spelling errors, and still in demo 2, but I'll finish it up someday and get it decent, at least the same quality as Ninja Forever will have)

I can give you links to where to download all of those, excpet nr. 3 and nr. 4.

Thanks. I've looked at screenshots and stuff and I decided I like the Pirates of the Carribean (Sea Dogs 2) and Pirates! out of what I've looked at. Thanks again :huh:

I think there were a bunch of Monkey Island games on the PC. The PS2 had Escape from Monkey Island, which was hilarious (but difficult). Someone posted it earlier, but a new game called Galleon is coming out on the X-Box...and quite possibly the PC. Sid Meyer's Pirates looks promising too.

I'd recommend Redjack - The Revenge of the Brethren... it's a role playing game with swordfighting, treasure hunting and lots of interaction with other rogues and lasses...

Believe it's out of print but I found mine on ebay...

PotC is a good game - Monkey Island 1, 2, and 3 are great (4 is a write-off, I'm afraid.)

I'm currently playing Port Royale 2, which is decent but doesn't really live up to the potential offered by today's technology - splotchy graphics, and lacks any sense of emersion. If you're into the whole "civic planning" type of videogames, I'd recommend Tropico 2 over Port Royale 2 - you have less control over your captains, but the game has more personality.

Personally, if I could only own one pirate game, I'd wait until November and snag a copy of the new Sid Meier's Pirates. Probably the most anticipated pirate videogame of all time, and from what I've heard from Betatesters, it will be well worth the wait :ph34r:

Yup, I heard the same thing...

Sid Meier is re-releasing his famed game "Pirates!" on PC with a modern-day facelift! New graphics, new gameplay, and it looks great!

Look for the article about it in one of the new issues of a PC gaming magazine (with The Sims 2 on the cover), or look up more info about it on gamespot.com.

Also, there is a game on Xbox called Galleon, and it's supposed to be decent, if not pretty good. Don't know if it's on PC, but Microsoft tends to cover both platforms with one release.

They should do a pirate version of SIMS. I know you can change the skins of the people, but it would be better if the whole thing were pirate-like. :)

If Sid Meier's updated Pirates is HALF as good as his original, it'll blow all the other competitor's out of the water HANDS DOWN.

I think there's a pirate game called Legend of Black Kat for PS2 or XBox...

I've played that, the PS2 version. It's a sort of a cartoonish arcade style game, run around, kill and collect stuff, hack and slash. The separate 2 player mode ship battle game is great fun.

Seeing as I'm all really really pathetic with my obsession with the Sims 2. When people have hacked it more and figured out how to make new meshes and objects, I'll keep you all up to date on the pirate stuffs I find. (I could find some for the first one but I really dont want to play that one anymore)
