    PS: According to the voting, GoldenEye:Source now ranks 2 out of 11,045 mods. Moddb is a website that tracks mods from every platform (including consoles) for almost every game out there.


    Not only did UT bring nothing, yes nothing, new to the table (with the minor exception of second fire, het hey... GoldenEye 007 featured dual wielding with different weapons so who cares?), GoldenEye 007 is featured right next to Doom in all the populair "Greatest (FPS) games of all times" lists. It sold more than 8 million copies.
    I don't care, this game probably sucks todays in my opinion. Btw. source based GA is not exactly the same game. I said Unreal, not UT. However, UT brought excellent bots and multiplayer, different firing modes. I'm sure Half Life and its mods are far more popular then GA, so I would rather like to see HL on Linux. You even gave one example of its popularity already.

    You realy need to have played this game before judging it, realy.
    Maybe you're right. I listed some FPS games I consider are great, but I prefer other genres, so this game being a FPS won't be better for me then some cRPG games and some others, so I would vote for them.

      Not my project, not my responsibility. Besides adding another dead project to Google Code, Berlios or Sourceforge would be going against my #1 beef with those sites.

        More Linux Games

        You know there are lots a types of gameplay and objectives to be used and realized other than shooting a gun.

        Sorry, had to start that up again, but FPS aaaaaaaaaalways get mentioned first. Yes yes, any popular game on Linux will help out Linux so that's all well and good, but any way, now to my real point..

        You'd really think that any company which is very confident that a game they are putting out will be successful would want to put it on as many platforms as possible. There are several examples of this, of course unless some big company (Microahemsoft) throws them a huge wad of cash to get exclusivity. Otherwise, I think that is the best hope, that:

        1) Linux gets more attention from those AAA game developers wanting to bring it to a wide number of platforms to have it "storm the entire market".

        2) Wine continues to focus on the games that are in demand the most, which they will, in order to quickly allow those to be playable flawlessly on Linux.

        That having been said, of course all the "small" Linux titles of course really help as well, just not as much.

          Nice arguments. However the gamers that try out Linux for the first time will go Like this:
          Does this free OS have a good free game?
          If no then it sucks.
          If yes then it owns.

          We just a need a killer game. Period. PC's are FPS devices. everything else Mario is for consoles :')

              Lets just start with one at a time, OK? xD

              Linux had UT2k4, Doom3 and WarSow. But now we just have nothing else than these 3... We need a new one :')

              PS: It's all about 'the next big thing' that Windows gamers have been all about. Remember Counter-Strike? There hasn't been a next big thing since then, if you'd ask me

                  ETQW is a joke. I own a retail copy and it sucks balls... ET:W I forgot, my bad. Prey, while totally awesome and I own a retail copy of it too, was two years or so too late

                  Adding to the list Quake 4? But that sucks too... Good game, but no good Quake game...

                      ETQW was an amazing game till the children started playing. HoN is also an amazing game, its just that unless you are a cold hearted asshole you wont fit in the community very well.

                          This community that you speak of is a very retarded community, imo, I've tried to enjoy the game but as i never played this kind of game the others players did show how retarded they are. Honestly this kind of game with such community can stay on a retarded OS like windows! they do deserve each-others!

                            I don't know about PC are FPS devices, other genres play better on pc's as well such as RPG's, adventure type games, simulations, etc. Going back to the fact that linux needs a killer game on it is true though, I was hoping Project Offset would fill that void but then intel bought them out and the linux version was killed off.

                                sounds interesting. Hows the mod community doing these days? I would fire etqw up and see for myself but unfortunately china decided to @#$% me over once again.

                                @xav1r, The game is arguably one of the best we have, and from a certain perspective its very well designed. You must remember that V!NCENT is only expressing an opinion and you should come to a decision regarding how good the game is on your own. Its currently in the bargain bins, why not take a swing?
