I sure do miss microprose. For my money, they had the best games. Loved pirates of course, but also games like darklands, civilization, crudade in europe, decision in the desert, fields of glory, moo, railroad tycoon and xcom...
Find out where MicroProse devs are now and check out their games. Sid Meier is at Firaxis and he has remade his classic games, some of them several times over. Of course he has made some new games too.
Yeah, they just aren't the same.
They seem more 'dumbed down' for lack of a better description, at least to me. I've loaded up darklands using doxbox and it's still a great game some 20+ years later.
