What do you mean by "less arcade"? Because I have a feeling that word doesn't mean what it used to in my youth.
Also, as every time a thread mentioning games about pirates pop up, I have to ask: When THE FUCK are we gonna get a good, Prince of Persia-style action game about pirates? Am I the only one seeing the potential for such a thing? Why do we have a dozen stupid Middle Earth-style fantasy games and twenty retarded shooters about space marine every FUCKING year, and the only game about pirates in the entire history of gaming is a spreadsheet simulator?
Okay, okay, there are two games about pirates then, but you know what I mean. Ever since the new prince started sliding down banners and curtains with his dagger, it's simply impossible someone didn't think that such a feat belongs in a game pirate story. I know most game developers are stupid, but they can't be THAT stupid.
And by the way, I'm talking about a good game, if possible, so please refrain from mentioning the Pirates of the Caribbean one +o(
I also remember some sort of sleek looking, cartoony pirate action-adventure game being developed, but being canceled at the last minute. So, at least some developers are still thinking about the idea :P.
Also, on the topic of pirate adventure games, has anyone played Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island? How is it?
