    Re: Good Article on Gaming in Linux

    Those are really great articles.
    The "Linux doesn’t have games" myth debunked.

    But I would love to have a few more categories filled out:
    -adventure games (ok, there's SCUMMVM..., and Ankh for 3D)
    -solo FPS games
    -third person view action/adventure games
    -stealth games
    -commando games (like "commandos" or "Rainbow 6")
    -...

    I just can't get enough. ^^
    What i really would enjoy is if the gaming companies started porting old games to GNU/Linux.
    I do have XP, so it's not really necessary, but it would at least avoid dual-booting.

    I want games, however, that I can play on my own computer, such as, "Alien Arena 2007". It is still a bit cartoonish, but it is fun.

    I am not a fan of online gaming. Maybe it is my age, I don't know (shrug).

    Great Articles! It would be nice if it could gradually be update to include the best examples of all genres of games (especially RPG's).

    I'd realy like to see a Gauntlet N64 type game (hack and slash in the purest form, barely more than 3 commands and multiplayer!), but alas. Mupen64 doesn't play it correctly
