Okay, so maybe the first list was a bust. So here’s a list of all the greatest pirate videogames of all time!
Drink up me hearties, YO HO!
p.s. Space Pirates? Does that slice o’ FMV bilge cake count?
Secret of monkey island game are indeed the best pirate game of all time … and that i can think of … aarrr, there aren’t that much pirate stuff nowadays …
Monkey Island series ftw :D!
I just watched all 5 of these… all I can say is…. thank god Talk like a pirate day only comes once a year lol.
Looking forward to normal spoony soon :P
I cheated and looked ahead on Blip….arrrrrrrrrr! Aye, the movie you mentioned last (I won’t give it away) was indeed an underrated good one.
…..I meant 4…. fucking rtarded me.
Tropico 2 was nice also
AYE Mate, drink up on such a wonderful day such as pirate day!
Now where’s my eye patch, must join in on this festive occasion.
Galleon is very nice as well.
Overboard was also pretty cool.
I hope you ARE drinking that Rum, Mr. Antwiler.
there actually was a pirate game that got the license to pirates of the carribean stamped on sometime in its production but was nontheless a pretty fun pirate rpg-simulation game.
you did not mention any Errol Flynn films….
the ending always cracks me up
Spoony tha MAN!!!
btw, yer pirate sounds a lot like a drunk welshman.
Spoony man, you used to be such a great reviewer… now look at you! you’re just a clown, a fucking clown, and a bad one btw.
I know you’re an actor and shit but PLEASE, stop trying to copy AVGN and the stupid NC, you used to have your own really cool style. And I am not opposed to change. People change for the better, but you are changing for the worse. You are not funny anymore. Sorry but that’s the truth… the truth of a fan that has followed you for several years now.
Ahar me hearty ye forgot the greatest pirate game in all the seven seas! Sküljagger! Hahahaharr! Oh dear… where has all the rum gone?
Just gotta step around these trolls here…excuse me….
Very funny. But I gotta ask…where is Scarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrlet?
What about sid myers pirates.
Destrucity, ya bilge rat! Th’ Spoony One’s Wench be mine now. I be takin’ her to Port Royale where she will fetch a high price… which I then be usin’ to buy more Grog an’ Rum! ARRRRR!
spoony, your silliness never ceases to amaze. or maybe i’m just delirious from eating too many cookies…or both. probably both.
In my opinion, Monkey Island 1 & 2 are not only the best pirate games, but also the best adventure games of all time.
Monkey 3 was different but still good. The fourth one wasn’t appealing and the controls were frustrating.
maybe it was because he was talking about videogames
You forgot skies of arcadia.
To, the coward named ME. I think it be time you walk the plank, ARRRR
Looks like I was beaten to the punch for Skies of Arcadia.
Hmmm… next year might be a good excuse to review Skull and Crossbones for the NES.
And no… that was not a suggestion for a good game. Shudder.
Frog yes WC Privateer counts!
Although I feel the need to re-iterate myself regarding peoples criticism on what you do. Do what you want and your true crowd will follow. I probably count for a large portion of your blip tv income anyway =P.
No mention of Talespin? I’m sure they must’ve made a NES game at some point….
How about The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker? That’s got pirates in
Wind Waker can suck it. Oh, it was a great game…when it was called Majora’s Mask…when that was called Ocarina of Time.
Seriously, I don’t think there’s ever been a series with less evolution over the years than Zelda, except maybe Dynasty Warriors.
Wow, I’m officially done viewing this site.
Removing you from my Bookmarks…now.
Have a nice life Noah.
Lighten up and try to enjoy something that you review, or review something that you actually enjoy.
The last month of reviews has been nothing but “I liked it, but here’s every distinguishing flaw in it.”
Not funny, just bitter.
Skulljager, the absolutely terrible SNES game– If only because MAN, that was a bubble-gum and piracy based headtrip in the form of an unnaturally hard video game with a manual thicker then my hand.
So much platforming pain– So much.
Wow, this ‘Brian’ jackass didn’t post until during my typing spree, or I would have replied in my last comment:
LIGHTEN THE FUCK UP- People who do these reviews, at no cost to you, on the internet, are not looking for idiotic gorram responses like “Oh you’re just bitter now!”
For the love of every god above and below, if you think he was bitter this week, go back and watch Phantasmagoria! Seriously, do you even realize what the words coming out of your mouth MEAN?
My apologies to all of the sane, rational people for the all-caps; it’s the only thing assholes understand, like Kanye West only speaking in Auto-tune.
In other words, Spoony keep a-rocking, idiotic fools keep a-killing-your-selves.
Wind Waker is actually my favorite Zelda game, though the sailing was indeed tedious. It’s true that the Zelda games have many similar elements, but that still doesn’t mean that the series is overall a very good series. I know people look at lack of innovation as a bad thing in many games, but if the end result is still fun and worth the money, you don’t need to fix what isn’t broke, you know what I’m saying?
EDIT: I mean to say ,”It’s true that the Zelda games have many similar elements, but that still doesn’t mean that the series *ISN’T* still overall a very good series.” I’ll chalk that error up to tiredness.
I’m still curious to know what Noah thought about Skies of Arcadia if he’s even played it.
Pirates… IN SPACE!!! Privateer was awesome. What do you do for fun around here? Drink some Beer!
The best pirate game that i played was probly Rouge Galexy. Its an RPG taht is hard as hell and extreamly long as hell, but your a pirate. YARRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
No love for Uncharted Waters?
Majora’s Mask being a clone of Ocarina of Time.
I’ll pretend that was the Captain in ya.
Eh. People don’t play Zelda for evolution anyway. There aren’t many quality games in this vein, so Zelda holding to the same (high) quality level but with new characters and puzzles etc doesn’t bug me at all.
Dude You have the ARRR pun for in all the videos descriptions but this one. Come on. You can do it. Go for 4 out of 4.
Weird, I was always under the impression people hated Wind Waker and Majora’s Mask because they were too different from Ocarina of Time. Just look at any games message board ever.
The Metroid franchise maintains SPACE pirates…they still qualify right…right?! super metroid is still the best snes game ever.
Zack & Wiki?
…Okay, yeah, never mind.
Yeah I was going to say Skies of Arcadia as well.
I can’t believe you forgot Corsairs, one of the best strategy games ever!
No Skies of Arcadia? You spoony bastard! xP
PS: What software do you use to make your Let’s Plays?
I’m a really big fan of the Monkey Island series and I was sure they would have been on this video!!
Funny video and w the talk like a pirate day!!!
how dare thee to call Monkey Island 4 one of the greatest pirate-games ever?
Me ol’ Chumbucket, that game was the DEATH of this greatest series ever made.
Yar how could yea forget Red hook’s revenge?! Ya damn bildge rat!
I also agree, you forgot Skies of Arcadia.
Aie, He be a bloated scurvy dog for neglecting one o’ the Greatest ARRrpg of all time, Skies of Arcadia.
Skies of Arcadia is the best.
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong’s Quest ftw!!
Holy shit Spoony, making a snide comment like that about Zelda is pure bullcrap. No doubt the reason a sizable amount of your audience exists is because we consider you someone who actually has some level of respect for his audience, at least give us a Vlog on how you arrived to such a conclusion about the series.
Quite a few fans of the series actually deplore Majora’s Mask and Wind Waker simply for the fact that they ARE so different, bear in mind we are still talking about some of the most acclaimed games ever here. The only 3D Zelda game that can even be considered ‘stale’ is Twilight Princess (which is what people apparently wanted), and even that pushed the bar in terms of cinematography (something you should appreciate), character development, visuals and scale. You telling me that riding a Beyblade or sumo wrestling a Goron isn’t original?
What game series has less evolution than Zelda? I don’t know maybe MONKEY ISLAND, GTA, Total War and all of those random RTS games you play, Silent Hill, the old style Resident Evil, Dragon Quest, pretty much every fighting series (which is expected), every shooter series out there and… hell I might even strain to think after an hour of this.
Come on, blanket statements should be beneath you.
Also, no Skies or Zack & Wiki? What the flip.
For the love of fucking god!! Why there are some many post mentioning Skies of Arcadia?? That game embodied the very concept of stupidity… oh and BTW the graphics weren’t that good, even for that time..
To everyone saying that he should have put Skies of Arcadia on his list, he probably forgot about it or he has never played it. Second, this is his list so he is entitled to his own opinions and if he doesn’t have it then he doesn’t have it so STFU! Oh, and about Zack and Wiki, even though it is a good point and click puzzle/adventure game, the game did not sell well and Spoony probably has either never heard of it or played it.
Also, this whole video review sieries was meant as a joke to celebrate “Talk Like a Pirate” day.
I’m enjoying this theme of yours. Not a bad accent either. :)
I thought of ‘Skies of Arcadia’ too, but I guess that could be a debate between ‘Air vs. Sea’. I don’t mind either way; no sense in getting riled over a mention.
What?! What about “Rampart”?
“But don’t you build castles in that game?”
Yeah… castles on islands… islands under attack from PIRATES!!!
Hrmm, since you spend a good chunk of the game traveling in a pirate ship and fighting sea monsters, could you consider Final Fantasy 1 a pirate game? Nah, but seriously these videos were great. Couldn’t think of more than one or two things to add to any of the lists, they just about summed it all up.
I would agree with Skies of Arcadia needing to be on this list, but I’m going to go even more obscure and vote for Xenogears because of the AWESOME desert(and later sea and air) pirates who you join up with and become your allies in the game. Okay, maybe it doesn’t come to mind immediately, but it still involves pirates, damnit.
May I ask if you don’t find funny someone embracing the negative of somethign then what were you doing watching Spoony all this time? just curiosity
Argh yee skirvy sea dog, I’m sure yee tounge has slipped from your rattling brain bone. Yee had forgotten the very best naval pirate game todate of the title of Sea Dogs. She may have not been the best, but she was a good one to be playin’ with.
pirates of the burning sea!
My favorite pirate game is Skies of ARRRRRRRcadia. See what I did there? (pokes) Eh? EH?!
The moment I watched this, I knew, just knew, that the comments section would be filled with people naming some tangentially-pirate-related probably-Japanese whatsitmajigger I had never heard of.
Lo and behold! Skies of Arcadia.
No love for Uncharted Waters: New Horizons? Bah!
#1: One Piece unlimited adventure!
#2: One Piece unlimited cruise episode 1 and 2 (Although they aren’t out in America yet)
Also Maplestory has pirates >_>
what about Skuljagger?
What about Puzzle Pirates, me hardys? I reckon it not bein much of a real “pirate” game might’n be a problem with ye scurvy dogs, but it is pirate themed. Y’arr, and most of the other activities might be a bit of stolen and reskinned clones of other games too, but pirates we be! Stealin is what we do!
Seriously, it is fun, even if a lot is a knock off of other games. Swordfighting? Puzzle Fighter. Fistfighting? Puzzle Bobble. Bilge pumps? Bejeweled. Sailing? Dr. Mario (Although, this is a bit more original than the other pretty well straight copies.) Poker? Poker. Some of the games seem original though, like brewery, or shipwriting.
Is skies of arcadia a game that gets better and better? cause i played for a while and it was pretty good but never “great”.
please answer this cause your opinion might force me to pick up this game again ^^
There was a game released for PC some years ago called “Claw”. It was a platformer about an anthropomorphic pirate cat named Captain Claw who had his treasure stolen by some other pirates. The game had a variety of attacks and a pretty steep difficulty curve near the end, but overall was an excellent game.
Suikoden89, it depends on which version of Skies of Arcadia you tried. If it was the Dreamcast version, it absolutely got better and better until the ending. Wasn’t a big fan of the GC version, though.
You forgot The Elder Scrolls: Redguard Adventures!
More of an RPG Adventure game obviously, but its different from the others. You are actually a pirate, and it kicks so much ass!
Of course it does … Privateer was a pirate game … who the fuck wanted to be a merchant more than once.
The accent sounds a bit like a Birmingham accent. I didn’t know there were brummy pirates.
Final Fantasy XII and Skies of Arcadia. RPG+Sky Pirate=win
A good pirate RPG is what we need.
And yes, Wing Commander Privateer counts. Can you attack ships, steal their swag, sell the crew into slavery, and spend it all on cheap pleasures? Counts.
