Pirates are awesome... The Monkey Island series really is the greatest series of games ever made, in any format for any system... Another game I really liked was the original Crimson Skies, just bad ass. If you can find it for 10 bucks get it, if you have a joy stick, you NEED it. Its just a really fucking fun game. The X-Box version didn't really do it for me though. Anything Sid Meir touches seems to be at least halfway awesome though, I'm sure he'd only be involved in a good game. Hopefully itll be out by the time I'm back amongst the rest of civilization.
