    Indeed... especially since there are some nice mods out there like HDTP or NewVision ( HDTP = high definition texture pack, and NewVision adds things like dynamic shadow casting and alike ).

    By the way... why exactly did they go down with man and mouse? They just got poof and that was it.

      Loki did a series of BAD management decisions which were their own undoing. They actually had a decent selection of games, but had way too many projects going at the same time (Svartalf could probably elaborate much more and with greater detail than I), low sales rates, etc. Loki's game selection back in the day was top notch and included some of the greatest AAA titles of their time. UT99 was one of them, FAKK2, SoF 1, and they were working on DeusEx and many others.

        That's exactly what I think of it. Deus Ex is one of the best games ever created.

          Blood Frontier, the grenades are cool, the flamethrower is hot and the bots are intelligent.

                  Nexuiz, Alien Arena, Tremulous, Vega Strike, Freedroid, Scourge, and Eschalon Book 1 (I have more on my HDD, but those are my favorites). The only Windows games I bother to dual boot for are Rome and Medieval 2 since they stopped working on WINE .

                    To be honest, none as with RealNC. FPS are *fucking*... *boring*... and the FOSS versions thereof are even more *fucking*... *boring*... as their commercial counterparts so why bother? Better start making some real games outside of the FPS mold. FOSS has anyways no chance of competing with the AAA machinery geared for FPS production so why try a futile battle on that front if your fucking strength is creativity!

                        Open source game developers make game that they would like to play. They don't have to cater to "target audiences" in order for ensure profits. They develop a game that they see as fun, develop a following from said game, and satisfy their fans with more content and fixes.
                        They're not trying to compete with AAA titles. They simply want to make a game that they view as entertaining an let it out there for others to enjoy. If they want to make a FPS, then let them. The same with people that want to make a RPG, and so on.

                          /me agrees with melcar.
                          And besides, nexuiz is fucking awesome
                          Even brings some new things to the table I haven't seen in any other fps yet (grapling hook namely. hook + minsta = super fun ).

                            There's nothing like Race Driver Grid, Colin McRae Rally 2005, Grand Theft Auto, Fallout 3 for me (to name a few). So the guy who said something about FPS games probably doesn't have a clue about good games

                            And stop mentioning games that run in Wine. THIS THREAD IS ABOUT NATIVE LINUX GAMES. And of those, all suck for me. What can I say? The good games are for consoles and Windows.

                              On a side note, many of today's OSS FPS games are based upon some Quake engine which has been open sourced before, so I wonder what would've happened if Quake had not been an FPS but a racing or strategy game

                                Truer words never spoken.

                                Why should I, as a maker of an FPS care what others are doing. I happen to think that RPG's are "fucking boring" but I don't go around preaching it, and I certainly don't belittle those that like RPG's or make them.
