Re: Best games on ubuntu
I too have disliked most of the free games I've tried from the Ubuntu repos.. for the most part they seem like B-rate games from the 90's.
Go and get the latest Humble Indie Bundle! https://www.humblebundle.com/
Best $7 bucks I've spent on games in a long time. There are 10 games in all, and each one has a native linux client. I especially liked Dungeon Defenders, Splice, and Solar2. The games come as downloadable files or Steam keys.
I'm glad to see Linux getting some exposure on Steam, but personally I've never liked Steam much. If you read the fine print, you don't actually own any of the games you buy! It's a "service" your paying for, and Valve can decide to discontinue it (or ban you for no reason) whenever they want. If you want to play a game on steam.. buy the game direct from the publisher and see if they provide a steam key with your purchase.
