Anyway, I voted 4+, for the same reasons already stated by others. The megablocks sets have so many large pieces that they don't improve your building skill and you can't use them in a Lego MOC; never heard of the others, apart from playmobil which I like as a kid but just don't digg now.

When Toys R Us had a sale on on the +4 Pirates line a few years ago, I bought 4 or 5 of the Captain Kragg sets for $2.99 each because I really like that little boat hull. I think it's pretty bad megablocks..
Playmobile had some pretty cool sets, but I never had any of them. One my friends growing up had the Wild West stuff with wagons and stuff, but there's no nostalgia there for me.
Oh, and I concur: Bionicle doesn't count as Lego
Modern favorite: Race for the Stolen Treasure (X5 and counting)

Gee, I was almost certain that this topic was about pirates, not about Bionicle. But going along with the flow, I fail to see why Bionicle is not lego. It has oodles of technic pieces, the ocassional system piece, you can build them, take them apart, and build them into something else, etc. Sounds like Lego to me...

Maybe I voted for Playmobil because I played a lot with it when I was a kid (also with LEGO of course and always wanted a Playmobil pirate ship, but never got it.

I bugged and bugged the Mega Bloks Help center wheter I could buy this and they replied "It was a prototype, It would never be mass-produced".
My heart sank. It was such a awesome set...
God save the gracious King,
Long live the noble King,
God save the King:
Send him victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God save the King.

I voted PlayMobil and I agree with Gobernador.
Look at the PlayMobil Pirate Line... nice figures prints and ships IMO.

4+ shouldn't be on the list. The figs are off, but other than that, it might as well be system.
I voted for playmobile. I grew up with it, and the range of accessories is greater even than LEGO! It's not a building set, but offers tons of options for creative play, and is very well made.
MegaBloks isn't terrible, and is customizable, but it's really more like a poor comprimise between a building set and a playset, and if I want a playset, I'll go for the quality and european design of playmobile.
