    I don't play as much PC now as before, but not only because I just use Linux (can't find the time..). Still very interested in gaming, though. The most important games for me are the Quake-series, primarily Q3A. id Software is very important to Linux gaming and me, as they release prior engines under GPL and I like the gameplay, so I always buy their games even though I don't play them through ("I'll complete it another time"..).


    My list:

    id Software games (+ games by partners)
    Darwinia
    Warsow
    NWN
    Neverput
    UT2004
    Chromium B:S:U
    Majesty Gold
    Typespeed
    WINE (only for Blizzard games except WoW)

    I haven't bought it yet, but I'm very excited about the Penny Arcade game(s), so I'm sure that would be high on my list. If Blizzard made native Linux clients for SC2 & D3, I think they would maybe rank higher than id!

    Lastly I like and own two older shareware games, Marble Blast Gold and Mutant Storm, but gave up trying to get them to work on a modern Linux system... Not so cool.

    Curious what you have in mind, Michael!

      By the way, this Blizzard link is flawed, it only allows for WoW, while that is about the only Blizzard title I don't play in Wine
      Then especially the games that don't run in Wine, tell them about! I will find another Blizzard link, thanks.

      Tell them that, seriously!

      Write to them and let them know!

        I'd also like to have more adventure games on Linux, the genre itself seems to be making a comeback (Ankh, Jack Keane, Penumbra), but I'd definitely like other titles as well (such as Longest Journey and the like) or Action-Adventure titles (a la Prince of Persia, God of War et al. [of course not those specific titles, much less console-exclusive titles]). Gaming seems to be becoming saturated with Action shooters and MMOs.

          So true FPS games have been done to death now, where are the RPG's and RTS's already?

                        If a company cares about the game running in Wine, they don't care about the game running on Linux (wee, paradox!). Wine is way too volatile for the type of gaurantee developers/publishers would give, so those that would say "Wine is good enough" really doesn't care if Wine runs it or not.

                        Being officially supported by something like Cedega or CrossOver (where game compatibility is gauranteed for certain titles) would be something else, but then, with the work needed to get it working properly and get an official gaurantee of continued compatibility.. may as well just make a native Linux port at that point (especially if you have the hard part done with porting to GL+AL/whatever with an OSX port).

                            Err, Penumbra has native versions of both games, or did you buy the Windows version before migrating to Linux?
