    • UT3 would be the most important for me ...
      As that's the only game I play right now.
      realflight (RC Airplane/Helicopter Simulator) would also be on my Top-Lists.

                • Here is my list of games:

                  Battle for Wesnoth (is there any real alternative to this masterpiece in gaming?)
                  ETQW
                  UT2004
                  Ankh 2
                  ksudoku
                  zsnes (some of the good oldschool rpg games on the snes...)
                  scummvm (who could live without games like sam&max and monkey island?!?)
                  neverball (really seldom)
                  marble blast (very seldom, too, but a great game)

                  I do *not* use wine for gaming. I either want native games, or I tend to completely ignore them. Yes, I would love to have some games like the Civ series and Overlord as native linux version but until those are available, nothing for me...

                    - Urban Terror - Much better than CS for me
                    - RTCW and W:ET - for the Woflenstein fan in me :P
                    - Teeworlds - Quite the fun little online game, also surprised no one here plays it..
                    - Savage 1 - Who can go for long without this one? :P I really want to buy the second part, but money issues prevent me from doing so..

                    I guess thats it.. I will post again if I find something I missed :P
                    I agree about Regnum Online... it is a fun MMO that I wish I had more time to play. I need to log back in and see how my character is doing .

                    • Well, I use wine for a lot of games.
                      Then of course the id-batch. Quake3/4/ET:QW and Doom3.
                      Postal!!
                      And emulators are also important (Dosbox!!), and of course source ports of old games. Including stuff like Duke3D, Doom1/2, Wolfenstein3D, RotT, AlephOne and Descent.

                      • I am playing half of my spare time Quake Wars. The other half I spent with Wine: Tabula Rasa, Lord of the Rings Online, Diablo. However, for most of my games I need Windows

                        • I played a few native ports on linux:
                          • Alpha Centauri + Crossfire
                          • Unreal Tournament 2004
                          • Cold War
                          • Myth 2
                          • ScummVM
                          • Gorky 17
                          • Mindrover
                          • Quake 1,2,3
                          • Homeworld (using open source engine)
                          • Wolfenstein:ET (played online)
                          These are open source games:
                          • Battle of Wesnoth
                          • Sauerbraten
                          • Warsow
                          • Scorched Earth 3D
                          Only few games I managed to get working over a LAN are Warsow, Quake series and UT 2004. Otherwise most of the others are good games. If DO I LAN or even play games, I will probably use Windows anyway. I don't like Wine. I must mention that I'm not as much of a gamer these days though...

                          • Settlers of Catan (which technically is Java, but still an addicting board game turned video game)
                            Battle for Wesnoth
                            Doom 3

                            • I must also mention that some of those games do run a little better in Linux than in windows. Only marginally though... I can still see huge room for improvement.
