Depends what you mean for "good", 1stPSs are mostly quite boring. Try Medal of Honor with the quake4 engine (trough wine), you can now find its -physically boxed- "collector edition", for 5-10 euro max and/or you can easily find and download it for free from the web (depending how ethical you feel, lol).

Good rpgs abound: neverwinternights for linux native or witcher (through wine) I would say. Oblivion is also worth a go.

Of course depends what you mean for "free". They are all easy to find for free, the question is if it is legal to download them from your country OR FROM THE COUNTRY OF YOUR PROXY (provided you do care at all about "legality" as defined & defended by the patents' holders and their lackeys).

Some countries did not subscribe the Bern & other "patents mafia" conventions (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_parties_to_international_copyright_treatie s), like for instance S.Marino, Somalia or Turkmenistan, so use a proxy from those countries if you have heart qualms downloading whatever from the web.
