At the moment I play Pirates Of The Caribbean. Not the game of the movie, but one entirely different. It's when you play the character of Nathaniel Hawk. I really like it alot, with sailing, fighting and trading and all, very cool.
Man, i remember playing this game for hours and hours. i always kept the boat you started with because it was so fast and just boarded enemy ships instead of sinking them. i put all my points into fencing and boarding. i also remember the loan shark in the very first city was bugged, you could borrow money from him, put it in a box next to him, and then borrow more, and repeat the cycle until you have as much money as you need. heh, one of my friends accidentally conquered the city he was in and deleted his file because he had destoryed his main source of income
skies of arcadia was another really underrated game. the fights were fun, the ship battles were fun, and come on, flying boats? hells yea.
dragon warrior monsters as well, but man i had such bad luck with that game. just as i managed to breed a really powerful dragon (i didn't know about video game guides at the time so this was a long, painstaking, trial and error type thing) to go with my unicorn, who also took alot of work to get, i forgot the game in my swimming suit pocket and jumped into a pool with it. erased my file. the game was pretty screwed up for a while and would delete itself randomly, but eventually it started working okay again, and i got another good file going. by now i had discovered guides, so i was able to catch up to where i was before in about half the time, and even managed to get myself one of the stronger monsters (dracolord or something) when i once again forgot the game in my trouser pocket, and this time it ended up in the washing machine. The game never worked properly since then, and i've never ever forgot to check my pockets before swimming/changing clothes since that day. learned that lesson the hard way.
