      I suppose maybe few people will be interested in this game.

      One year later I played Unreal and it doesn't look Goldeneye is better.

        Minor nitpick on the article, but it's "raises the question" not "begs the question." The two are not equivalent.

          Why don't you do something productive...like snag a copy from one of the distros' "original" source file sets of 3.0a and move it over to Google Code, Berlios, or SourceForge...before I do it...

            Think again: http://www.moddb.com/mods/goldeneye-source
            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. You realy need to have played this game before judging it, realy.

              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 :')
