    I wonder if this thread is really about:

    Native Linux games vs Wine games tally.

    I'm certainly getting a gut feel that's how this article will focus on.

    Just registered.

    I mostly play X-Moto now. It's a 2D motor stunting game. The reason I play it so often is because a level only takes about a minute, so you can always start the game, hit Quick Play and do a few stunts if you're bored. And it's actually very challenging.

    The more serious games I play are:

    Free software:

    Nexuiz
    Sauerbraten
    Warsow

    Non-free:

    Descent 2 (d2x)
    Doom 3
    Quake
    Quake 3
    UT
    UT2004
    Return to Casdtle Wolfenstein
    Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
    Battlestar Galactica: Beyond the Red Line (might become free when released, but the demo isn't)

    And in Wine: Half-Life series, Hitman series, C&C3, GTA2, Dungeon Keeper 2, and Scorcher.

    I'm sad that Darwinia does not get a nod here. It's a mighty fine game, you know?

    Adding to the list, Mupen64 Plus and Mame. Ironically, playing the same game.

    I will say is that, what Linux as a platform has in abundance is shooters. Almost every shooter in Linux is a derivative of Quake 3. lol.

    Heh... That's the right way of presenting your ire, Forge.

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

    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).
