Why Aren't There More Pirate-Themed Video Games?

Pirates are rarely represented in modern gaming. Many video game fans would love to see more games focusing on the ruthless scallywags.

The story is too old to be commented.

IKR? Multiplayer is cool and all, but I kind of want a good pirate sim. Maybe I'll dust off my old PSP to play Sid Meier's Pirates, but I'd really love a new game in that series to enjoy on my more current systems, or something in a similar vein.

Actually, there are multiple different ways to do a pirate sim. You could manage an armada. A life-sim type type game could be pretty neat too, where you manage a single ship, but have freedom to do certain things such as build rooms in the interior for accommodations, warfare, and fulfilling other needs of the crew, and you can occasionally trade up to a bigger ship by purchasing or plundering one. Come to think of it, there's room for a lot of possibilities with pirate games that are, as of now, relatively untapped.

Hmmm...I might have actually found a game that's along the lines of what I'm thinking: https://store.steampowered....

Of course it's one of those TBA wishlist games. :(

It's starting to gain traction but it's very Multiplayer focused.

Can I get a Sinbad game instead? Great movies back then. Give me the 7th Voyages of Sinbad. Or some Arabian Knights game.
