I play a few games, hopefully more in the future.

As I only use Linux I do not have much choice. :)


Frozen-Bubble: Infinite Fun, pop the bubbles game.

Urban-Terror: Addictive, and hopefully will improve in the future. It is a FPS with modern weapons, and it runs insanely fast on 64-bit Linux.

Battle For Wesnoth: A strategy game, really well done, and excellent music.

Supertux: Of course.


There are others, however those are the ones I play. As for Wine, I play a few old games such as Arcanum, Morrowind, and Starcraft. I hope to gain enough attention to get a open source game similar to Arcanum started.

I'm not really a gamer, bu if I play games I like to play RTS. Unfortunately there are not that many RTS games for linux and those that do exist are not good enough (the ones that I have played). However, sometimes I play wesnoth (turn based strategy). :)

I'm not much into gaming. These are what I play:

Gnome card games;
Spring: 1944 (http://s44.koshi.homelinux.net): a World War II RTS game using the cross-platform Spring engine (http://spring.clan-sy.com);
Urban-terror (http://www.urbanterror.net): cross-platform FPS game (looks like Counter-strike);
Online chess at FICS, using pyChess (http://pychess.googlepages.com) client

I'm yet to find a good native soccer game, but I'm happy right now.

I used to be a diehard Urban Terror and Anarchy Online (via wine and cedega) gamer back when I had my good 'ol '*Nix Gaming Rig'. I eventually sold it to a friend and had to install windows for him (first time windows ever touched that pc).

On my current laptop, UrbanTerror has some horrible graphics glitches. Oh well.. good ol ati IGP chipset for ya.
Now I occasionally play:

-OpenArena
-Tremulous
-Nexuiz
-Pokerstars

lets face it, there are endless possibilities of good native fun.

Im getting surprised over and over again with programs and games I wasn't expecting to exist.

I began to record and upload short clips of games I got installed. My goal is to upload atleast 1 game per day... so far the average is 2.5 (but only done it for 2 days)

ok endless might be a little of an overstatement, but there are some worthy games out there, not like some years ago that wine/cedega/crossover was a must (and not fully working as well :P)

I find it quite facinating to try and get games working in Linux.
The ones i've successfully done so far:

wine:
World of Warcraft
Eve Online
Starcraft
Anarchy online
World of Goo
Portal
Half-life 2

Normal;
Open arena
Nexuiz
Frozen bubble

Emulated:
N64 and all the related games
Snes
Amiga

And lots more i can't think of right now.

<-- bit of a game nut

I play a bunch of Source games (I play Team Fortress 2 the most), Urban Terror (quite amazing for a free FPS), SuperTux 2 (The origional SuperTux was less than okay, but SuperTux 2 is amazing even though it is in development and glitchy) (play it with my WiiMote), Frets on Fire (play it with Wii GH3 Guitar) and an indie game called Jumpman (http://runhello.com/) (play it with WiiMote).

Even though I built my computer as a "gaming" computer, I rarely ever play games on it, Linux or Windows. I use my 360 for that. I always think "Oh man, look at the graphics on 'Crysis/Far Cry 2/Fallout 3/et al' I NEED that" but never actually play them. So, the machine in my sig is currently being used for Arch + Dwm, totalling in at a whopping 360MB RAM usage on heavy load (7 FF tabs, ncmpcpp, rtorrent, htop, random others).

Kind of a waste :(.

I've never been a huge gamer, but do enjoy some for occasional stress-relief or boredom-filler. I don't care for multi-player, though, just play them against the computer.

Unreal Tournament 2K3 / 2K4
Civilization: Call to Power
SimCity 2000
Descent 3 (think that's the one, haven't had it out in ages...)
Master of Orion (with DosEMU, long ago)
The Incredible Machine (Wine, long ago)

Probably more I'm forgetting...

I remember when I first got MoO going in DosEMU. I'd never seen such a tough gameplay before! I could have sworn the computer players' AI was at a whole different level than when it was running on DOS! :p

It's been a few years since I played any of those games. I tried installing UT recently, and it complained bitterly. Guess I need some old libraries to make it happy or something... SimCity hasn't run in an even longer time...

Oh yeah - and Super Tux Kart held me over until I was able to buy a Wii and Mario Kart! :D

I play counterstrike a lot and trust me, Urban Terror and Counterstrike don't look alike, and play very differently.

It's the same concept, that's it.

"Look like" is subjective. I didn't played much Counterstrike, so I think you're right.

Even if you "have a life", there has to be some moment in your life where you don't know what to do and play a game: maybe tetris, maybe something else. You don't play any games at all?

I've done many, Urban Terror is the one I played the most. I also have Open Arena, Scorched 3D, TORCS, I did a month in EVE, and from the other games in Ubuntu.. I like a lot the 5 or more, tetravex, and sudoku.

On Wine I've tried some games with poor results. I havent tested again since Cedega worked better with some, like CMR 2.0 and Starcraft (on wine ran very slow).

I do feel that these games are in need of a good graphics guru... they barely push the limits of old GPU's.
