And then there's uhhh this:

It's actually not totally atrocious in my opinion. Those games were almost all dialogue anyway so it's possibly the ONLY PRACTICAL USE OF THE THEATRE FORMAT EVER.

I would steal jokes too. A bazillion dollar movie based on your writing? Throw anything in that might make it not flop. Pre-made pirate jokes? Check!

Yeah, I actually hadn't even read all of that when I posted it and the conclusion the writer comes to seems to be that they probably didn't even rip off Monkey Island all that much. Although the bad guy's transformation from a ghost pirate to a zombie (er squid?) pirate in the second one does seem fairly similar.

But Ron Gilbert just ripped off a book and the PotC ride anyway so I guess it makes sense. Just imagine life without Jerry Bruckheimer and we could have had good pirate movies.

Yeah and I am sort of amazed at what a whinypuss he is. Did you see where he said this:

"Yeah, they kind of screwed up his beard, but that's LeChuck, and let's be honest, if I'd thought of the squid tentacles for a beard, I would have done that." - Ron Gilbert

What!? If I'd thought of that?! One is tentacles and the other is a zombie! He's sort of saying if he'd actually thought of something they would've ripped it off? Uh, but you didn't. Whiner!!! HE WHINES!!!
