  1. In the further Sea of thieves will have the #1 spot

  2. Say what you will about the game, I still love Risen 3. Its the second best pirate-themed game I've ever seen!

  3. Right now sea of thieves is the best pirate game 💯 best

  4. how is crimson skies not even an honorable mention?

  5. Wait, The Secret of Monkey Island isn't 1?! Surprised much?

  6. Imagine a one piece open world mmo or maybe just an rpg but imagine exploring the world and finding your own devil fruits but you can chose not to eat it

  7. Skies of Arcadia Legends…one of the best video games of all time. Deserved at least the #2 spot, but for me it's #1. Nothing comes close to the creativity and originality of the world in that game. My personal all time favorite, right up there with Witcher 3

  8. u didn't mention Cutthroats terror on the high seas

  9. Scurvy scallawags gets a mention but not pirate101?

  10. We all know Sea of Thieves has now taken over this here list.

  11. Where's "Pirates of the Caribbean (2003) game"?

  12. I remember a game where there was like a flying ship I think??? And like you were in a prison and shit and like you had to escape or fight some guy I can’t remember this was like a 2009 game

  13. I was like where is sea of thieves then I saw the date the video was published

  14. A Tropico 2 remaster with a map to discover and added ship battles would be great.
    Apart from Black Flag, Sid Meier's Pirates and Tropico 2 there's really not much around with a great tropical pirate atmosphere.
    Let's hope for Skull & Bones!

  15. I guess pirates vs ninjas dodgeball didn’t make the cut.

  16. Shantae and the Pirate Curse wasn't even an HONORABLE MENTION?! It feels like WAY more of a pirate game than that silly match three game you put there! That's just RIDICULOUS.

  17. I'm sorry kids, you can vote as much as you like, but Assassin's Creed will never be above Monkey Island.

  18. Wait wait wait you do this list without sea of thieves?!!?!!??

  19. I hate That Ratchet and clank game. It's garbage compared with the others from the franchise

  20. Lacks Sea Dogs games which are awesome.

  21. dude you are stupid legend of zelda wind walker thats not a pirate game what the hell is wrong with you. sure it may look like that but thats because link meets petra the pirate captain of her crew jeez and i thought i was dumb one.

  22. Before I start watching this video, two words: BLACK FLAG. I have said all I need to say

  23. I guess those video games are pirated. (pun intended)

  24. Best pirate game -my broke ass life as a gamer.

  25. Can you do Top 10 Kat Dennings Performances?

  26. Kinda surprised you didn't go with Curse of Monkey Island. On top of all the other Guybrush-esque shenanigans, you got to sail the ship and exchange broadsides with other pirates long before entries 3 and 1 were even a thing. And, the insults and threats having to RHYME? I loved that silly gimmick!

  27. As for my favorite, it's a tossup between Skies of Arcadia and Curse of Monkey Island. Black Flag might take the lead, assuming I manage to get through it between my gaming queue and my job.

  28. To all fellow Sea of thieves madBeards, this video is 6 years old (as of 2022), SOT came out in 2018

  29. I’m soo confused where is AC black flag and sea of thieves all these other games🤔
