  • Favorite Open/Closed Source Games

    Well, what are your favorite open-source and closed-source LINUX-NATIVE games?

    Me personally, I think of all times it would have to be RTCW: Enemy Territory and Cube or Nexuiz. Though, I am very much waiting to see how Quake Wars: Enemy Territory will fare.

    I will always be up for a game of RTCW:ET (probably my favorite LAN party game). Lately I have been playing some Doom 3 and some UT2004, but I have fallen back to my old favorite; Warcraft 2 (using the Stratagus engine).

      I had a terrific time with Quake 4, although my opinion seems to uncommon. I thought it was a really awesome action-shooter. Neverwinter Nights w/ expansions is a close second.

      Quake Wars should be a blast. I'm really looking forward to that.

        I've always loved Unreal Tournament, although I can't really get into Nexuiz. It just doesn't seem to have as tight gameplay as UT. I tend to play a little bit of Neverball when I am bored.

          I second that. Neverball and Neverputt are both great games.

          EDIT: Now why isn't quoting working...?

            My favorite Linux game EVER is Darwinia. It's unique, original, very playable and in Linux. My perfect formula for great entertainment.

            Two thumbs up.

              X2: The Threat, Doom 3, Cold War. Also have been playing Warcraft III through Cedega for almost 4 years now and I still cannot put it down.

                Enemy Territory and Neverwinter Nights for me.

                  I'm a hardcore Starcraft Brood Wars fan, even though its windows only, it works good enough with cedega. I also like Warcraft III which works perfectly in cedega I haven't found a boat load of good linux native games, but I certainly do enjoy quake 3, quake 4, and unreal tournament 2004. Hopefully Quake Wars will be as enjoyable as the others

                        TuxGames has a retail list @

                        Also, another great open-source game is Warsow.

                          Does anyone know of a listing of all 'PC' games that have native linux installers either on the media or at least downloadable from somewhere? I'm sick of going to EB Games and seeing a wall of cool PC games but I have no idea what can be installed of not.

                          I know the following has native linux installers (because I own them):

                          Quake 1, 2, 3 and 4 (have to download off the net)
                          Neverwinter Nights (
                          Doom 3 (have to download off the net)
                          UT2004 (installer is on the CD)

                          Can anyone add to this?

                            Found a really good listing all native games - the list also includes free games but it's good enough for me to print out and take with me next time EB Games has a big sale on...

                            Oh, it's aimed at Ubuntu, but shouldn't be a problem for other distros...

                              Great find with that list, very detailed.
