    If you like Quake 3 arena, try Open Arena. If you're using Feisty, it's in the repositories.

    Re: Ubuntu Gamers

    Updated list of games I have up and running:

    America's Army 2.5
    Armagetron
    Battle for Wesnoth
    Chromium
    Cube 2
    Flightgear
    Frets on Fire
    Frozen Bubble
    Grid Wars 2
    Guild Wars (via Wine. Crashes randomly due to too many concurrently active lights.)
    Halo (via Wine. Laggy and improperly displays in the top two-thirds of the screen.)
    Jedi Knight II (via Wine.)
    KAsteroids
    KBattleship
    KMines
    KNetWalk
    KSudoku
    Open Arena
    Planeshift
    Planet Penguin Racer
    Neverwinter Nights
    Nexuiz
    Savage
    Second Life
    Spring
    Steam (original Half-life and several mods through Wine)
    Super Tux
    Super Tux Kart
    Tremulous
    Warsow (The mouse has stopped working since I updated to the newest version)
    Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory

    Of the newest round of installs I like Chromium and KNetWalk the best. They are a step away from my standard FPS games though. These are more old school (Chromium) and puzzly (KNetWalk).

    I have heard mixed reviews from wine hq on the ability to run it through wine. I have had partial success as it actually installed, but the in-game graphics only display on the top 2/3's of my screen and it is very laggy.

    Hmm... I love me some starcraft, especially to get back in the groove for the release of Starcraft II . Does anybody know if Warcraft III & Starcraft play well through wine / cedega ?

    Actually, Starcraft plays perfectly with Cedega. With Wine, I haven't tried it, but with Cedega it is so easy to use, and the monthly fee is worth it for the sake of Linux gaming. Starcraft works flawlessly.

    Re: Ubuntu Gamers

    Why use and support Windows games (and their developers), when there are lots of games available for Ubuntu? If you are looking for commercial-quality, there's a list of commercial games here: http://www.linuxgamingworld.com/games-catalog/

    Quake Wars: Enemy Territories just came out, which is awesome. Probably the best FPS out right now. DEFCON and Penumbra Overture are two I would recommend, too.
    Join your a Local Linux User Group or an Ubuntu Local Community Team...
    Purchase your next computer with Ubuntu pre-installed and supported for best hardware compatibility.
    Support companies that support Ubuntu and Linux solutions.
