    Game recommendations

    I am completely out of touch with the gaming scene. The last games I played were Enemy Territory (the stand alone multiplayer free version) and Silent Hunter I. Just to show you how far out of touch with the scene I am

    So I was just wondering if there are any recommendable games along the lines of:

    - Enemy Terriroty
    - Silent Hunter
    - C&C Red Alert

    That a casual, non-serious and non-regular gamer could try?

    Preferably something that will run on my ageing hardware: ATI Radeon HD 5750 1024 MB

    Optimum would be something that works on Ubuntu

    Otherwise something that could run on OSX. I don't have a Windows machine.

    I appreciate any and all recommendations

    get the 2.5 version, it's 'dev' but very stable and has way more in it than 2.4

    Thanks I have gone ahead and don't that. The Linux compatible selection seems somewhat limited still.

    Any top recommendations from Steam ?

    Never tried it, but heard a lot about it. Will look into it.

    Airland Battle has been recommended to me. Looks pretty decent, although I am not so sure that it's for the casual gamer.
