Grab It Magazine details its top 10 best pirate games of all time across all gaming platforms.
Excellent list! Love the addition of Donkey Kong Countey 2. Though putting Black Flag in front of Monkey Island is sure to ruffle some feathers. :)
Good list, and the whole list is on 1 page, which is great. easy to read :) Well done! Would have thought Zack and Wiki (Wii) would have gotten a mention though, considering the positive reviews it received.
Good call on all counts.
I was curious if Zack and Wiki would make it on there. Wish there was a sequel or port.
Black Flag was an exceptional game, Deserves it's spot at #1
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is a damn good pirate game
The shanties really help, lol. :]
There were times where I literally just sailed the sea to hear the shanties lol
That game was awesome. Loved the fort battles
My fave AC game by far, awaiting my third replay. Watched Black Sails a few weeks back and made me want to play it again.
Would Zelda: Wind Waker classify for this list? Marginal, but potentially. I remember another game when I was a kid called Taipan, but have never been able to find it again. Was almost text-based, super old-school. But I loved it.
It was a close call, but in the end I decided to leave Wind Waker off the list. Fantastic game though!
And Phantom Hourglass! Man, that was such a rich game for the DS.
This just reminded me- where the heck is Inafune's Kaio: King of Pirates? I know he's been a busy guy, but there hasn't really been any word on it since 2013 (when it was given a 2014 release).
What no Uncharted Waters games?
Ahh these were a close call. If I had an 'honourable mentions' list, they certainly would have made it on there.
Ahh Sid Meirs Pirates! and Monkey Island accompanied me during my trip across Australia. Many a sight went unseen because of those two titles.
Would it be unethical to introduce this article with "In celebration of Pirate Bay's resurrection..."? ;)
Oddly I liked Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat. That was an early-gen ps2 game. ACBF reminds me of this. So did Backstab on mobile.
Sid Meier’s Pirates is my all time favourite. I remember there was talk of a mod that would have expanded the map to West Africa and Brazil, shame it never got made though.
I'd have said Monkey Island a long time ago, but Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is definitely my number one now.
I Can't wait for a The Curse of Monkey Island Remastered edition!!! Played that game too bits as kid!
I think that may be my most favourite game of all time. In fact I started playing it again from the beginning after finishing the article!
Good list. I would have added some Pixel Piracy on there for what it brings in comedic value and the music is great. I used to play High Seas Trader when I was younger... I played that for a long time and still get my dos emulator out and play it every now and then. What a great game, and I loved plundering ships. I just got AC:Black Flag so I will have to try it out when I have time.
Cool list. Now we need a top ten ninja game list!
