List Rules Vote up the very best pirate video games. Must heavily focus on pirates.

Shiver your timbers, because this list of pirate games is about to answer an age old question: What are the best pirate games of all time, from every era of video games? It's a tough question, but your votes will rank these games about pirates from best to worst. This pirate games list is setting sail on the seven seas, so if it's a pirate's life for you, vote up the best pirate video games ever made.

So what's the best pirate game? If you're looking for a game from classic era of real life swashbucklers like Blackbeard, then Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag has to be part of the conversation. If you'd like to play some futuristic piracy, then Borderlands 2 is probably right up your alley.

And, of course, there's the Age of Pirates series, which makes the entire game about sailing the high seas and boarding other ships for you to hijack and plunder. Of course, there's also the classic point-and-click adventure The Curse of Monkey Island. With this list of pirate games, you really can't go wrong!

So vote up your favorite pirate games, and if any don't meet your standards of buccaneering, downvote them into oblivion!
