  • What Linux Games Are Most Important To You?

    I've received a request to find out what the most popular / important Linux games are to you. For those that play any games on their Linux OS, please share the titles below. Once we have a nice list of games, we'll then set it up for a voting process.

    While I don't normally play any games, I'll start by listing Enemy Territory: Quake Wars

    Note: If you're playing games within WINE, just list WINE but the Windows game being run is not needed.

          To be honest, none so far. The games I like are not on Linux. The last I played though has been OA.

                In addition to playing quite a few games in WINE, I play:

                - Regnum Online - best native MMORPG for Linux so far, surprised nobody here plays it.. You should do an article on it Michael
                - 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

                  (unsorted)
                  Already released
                  -Quake 3 Arena
                  -Frozen Bubble (I just love it )
                  -Penumbra (It's really awesome)

                  Announced:
                  -Shadowground


                  But I can't say which is the best. Even that list is only a top 3/4. I also love d3, et:qw, q4, ut2k4, ss1+1,5+2, nethack, . That's the advantage of Linux as a gaming platform: We get few games, but very good games

                      Frets on Fire is really cool - I even patched the kernel once to support the GH3 PC guitar (same as the one for GH2 Xbox 360).

                      Zero Ballistics was fun too, just waiting for an update with more levels...

                            Got into Tremulous again. Forgot how much the battles suck. Basically all everyone does is build a bunch of crap in their bases and wait. Fun game nonetheless.
                            Still, Warsow and Nexuiz are the top favorites. If fglrx were to seriously break those games I don't know what I would do.

                              Are you kidding me? This is also a favourite of mine. Gotta love tossin' 'em coloured balls.

                              Other games I like to play:
                              WINE - ENEMY TERRITORY: QUAKE WARS - DOOM3 - SAVAGE 2: A TORTURED SOUL - PENUMBRA (both installments are just great) - OPEN ARENA - SECRET MARYO CHRONICLES - SUPER TUX KART (although a real physics engine would do this game good) - MEDAL OF HONOR: ALLIED ASSAULT - ...
