        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...

                    openttd, darkplaces, ksudoku (), qgo, kmquake2 - all opensource (except for game content in some cases).

                    also emulators: mostly atari800 and e-uae when some nostalgia catches up with me.

                      I mean really when will Linux get some respect. I get tired of hearing excuses about companies not wanting to port to Linux or support it. Geez I was so excited when Loki came out. Remember them? Gone now....

                      So sad...
                      I Still Feel That The Key To Linux Gaining Popularity is Games (and of course ease of use for stupid people like me!)!!!
