I remember playing Pirates a LOOOOOONG time ago on a friends Macintosh back in the mid/late '80s. What I didn't realize last night when I bought Sid Meier's Pirates! from D2D (for only $5) was that it was a remake of that old game.
As I started to play last night, it felt familiar. Sailing around as a ships captain, firing cannons and fighting other ship captains. Sure the graphics have been updated, and pretty well, I must say. But the core of the game that I used to love is definitely in there.
I'm looking forward to getting back to this one tonight.
