    Is there any big games for linux

    I know that there are many games that works with wine, I wonder however if there are actually any big mainstream games for linux.
    The only one I know of is currently Heroes of Newerth and that's it.

    Commercial offerings (where most big mainstream GNU/Linux compatible games are):
    http://www.tuxgames.com/
    http://www.linuxgamepublishing.com/products.php?

    There are few "big mainstream games", but lots of "small indie games".
    ex:
    -Lugaru
    -World of Goo
    -Cave Story

    cf TIGDB

    Upcoming: http://lgn.linux-hardcore.com/list-o...u-linux-games/

    For more, look through these sites: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=359842

    And apart from Wine, there are also engines/emulators like:
    -SCUMMVM
    -console emulators (ZSNES, etc)
    -game specific engines working on GNU/Linux and requiring original game data (Jagged Alliance, Doom, etc)
    which allow playing "old big mainstream games".

    Unreal Tournament 2004
    Doom 3
    Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
    Prey
    Neverwinter Nights
    Freespace 2

    probably a few more, but not many with native linux launchers

    Quake Wars probably biggest most recent game. Not too many as a whole, though.

    Urban Terror and Vendetta Online are my 2 faves.

    Neverwinter nights! Great game, altho it is looking bad... I at the moment play on wine a lot (WoW and steam games) but i love urban terror and Wolfenstein ET.

    Well, I would say Unreal Tournament 2004 and Urban Terror, but they are already posted here. So ++ goes to them

    primal carnage is coming to windows mac linux and consoles. i forgot which ones though, xbox 360 i think?

    http://www.primalcarnage.com/website/

    it has really good graphics because it's powered by unigine, and it's dinosaur themed.

    it's yet another fps, but it's different beccause you work in teams in a story mode hunting dinosaurs in a jurassic park themed place.

    you can play as the dinosaurs too!
