    • Eternal Lands FTW!

      There's a turning point in my linux gaming life: before Eternal Lands and after.. The only game I know of in which you can mine iron ore with a pickaxe hurting yourself time to time, your pickaxe fails use the backup one or cave walls fall on you harming you and then smelt it into iron or steel bars using fire and coal while feeding yourself to avoid hunger, buy some leather and threads and if you have the proper knowledge make your own iron plated leather armor yourself using these and tools like a hammer and needle. Then sell it on the market to real online players or wear it as a hunting gear...

            • Quake3 as all time favorite still playing it sometimes native! not quakelive actually sometimes quakelive too

              And Zero-k dunno why it didint get any atention here since it is really good open-source RTS battles 8 vs 8 mostly
              http://zero-k.info/ some new players would be nice. Trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkZaL...eature=related

              It is weird to see when there is news about 0.a.d alphas or nexuiz, whatever first person shooter minor releases and zero news about spring engine since it is really advanced and mature http://springrts.com and has games like above.

                never say never!
                also open source don't means free of charge!
                you can get funds for your open source project and pay real actors and release the game open source!

                • OS :
                  Aquaria
                  Super Tux

                  CS :
                  Unreal Tournament Series
                  Gothic Series
                  Thief Series
                  Deus Ex Series
                  Half Life Series
                  Diablo Series
                  System Shock Series

                  The best Linux games so far (IMHO) have been indie developers. No necessarily open source. Especially, if you are not into RTS.

                  Eschalon Series
                  Voxeltron
                  World Of Goo
                  Gish

                    Open: 0 A.D, Wolfenstein and Urban Terror also some Sauerbraten, FreedroidRPG!
                    Closed: Anything by Frictional Games, Project Zomboid, Doom 1 and 2 on Skulltag.
                    Windows: S.T.A.L.K.E.R Series, System Shock Series, Metro 2033, Carmageddon and last but not least Co-op the Unreal campaing with the UT99 mod Infiltration 2.9 CE. There's nothing quite like it. Imagine a regular soldier-man with regular military arms against fast, vicious and agile Aliens in a strange new world!

                      • Hmm, kinda surprised no one mentioned Dwarf Fortress. Used to be closed-source and Windows-only, but is now partially open-source and runs on Linux as well (due to the nature of the game, a ton of Linux-users love it).

                        The graphics aren't amazing, of course, but it's ironically one of the most cpu-intensive games I've played . In fact, I think if the game had amazing graphics the developer wouldn't have spent as much time on the awesomeness elsewhere. It can be difficult to play, though (and not due to graphics). Ever seen that nifty learning curve image?



                        Challenge accepted, right?! Just a bit of warning, play this with plenty of spare time .

                        • I stick with the classics

                          xroach, xbill, and Quake 1 with the DarkPlaces engine. I also like KDE's Mahjongg, and gnomine too. I don't like gnome's mahjongg too much. The pieces all look too alike. One Linux game I found I didn't like recently was trying to get my Wi-Fi to work without network-manager. That was no fun at all!

                          • I have quite the opposite experience, while NetworkManager tries to keep things interesting by popping up final bosses when you least expect them, they up the difficulty curve greatly and also vary a lot by each other. While one of them may lose quickly to a rpg, another may be completely immune to that.

                            • Some of my favorites:
                              World Of Goo, mentioned not once in this thread
                              Machinarium, maybe the most innovative point and click game I've ever played
                              Osmos
                              Trine, waiting for 2 now
                              That was from Humble Bundles, from natives are
                              Prey and a played a little BTRL
                              From OSSes:
                              SuperTuxKart - lots of fun with 2 players
                              Nexuiz and more recently Xonotic

                              Desperately need some new and interesting triple A game like Prey 2 or the mentioned not once before Rage
                              Also waiting for some good racing game like this one:
                              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhXk...layer_embedded
                              Hope it is still coming to Linux.
