I'm simultaneously trying to find something to occupy my time and get my friend unhooked from playing Eternal Lands, a MMORPG. Prior to this he was playing America's Army. So something flashy and 3D is a plus, but ... less obsessively playable, I guess, if that makes sense.
As for me, my favorite games are those with lots in them to explore, I've been playing nethack on and off for the past month, but I feel like I can be doing better. My favorite games of all time are probably the Zelda series. I'd love to have something like Ocarina (sp?) of Time all over again, but with new challenges.
I have a copy of Quake III, Arena for Linux. I dont play it on linux due to the fact my wireless card isnt supported on SUSE so I can't play it but its cool.
Only a few "translations" need to be made for the main core of OpenGL games (and programs) to run properly on Linux. OpenGL is the same across platforms, and wine takes care of the interactions with system calls (such as drawing a messagebox, or opening a file) which are minimal in a graphical context. So it's not a huge surprise that some games will run better in Linux than in Windows, with better memory management and disk layouts.
I only play the basic games that come with my distro. I am currently distroless but will be installing Fedora Core 4 soon and will probably also install FreeCiv. After playing CivIII for a while I might be able to win against the computer for once...
I don't prefer linux games..
I play chess and xonix on my linux distro. The chess algorithm used is pretty cool and never can you beat it..
I`m playing Americas Army ver. 2.6, and DOOM 3, but i must to install new drivers for my graphic card ( ATI 9600xt ), now it works great.
Does somebody know where I can download Call of duty 2 for Linux, becouse I can`t find it on torrents, and I want to play it
i think linux is not for us to play game
Lincity and XDigger, haha
I tried playing AA in gnu/linux, even though a good game with nice graphics, i quit for several reasons.
1. I don't have that much time to waste. I prefer sleeping.
2. I don't like being an American Soldier.
3. I'm not that much patient to pass all those training sessions.
Blah Blah Blah.
The only game I play now on my box is spades.
I play FreeCiv and Quake III on Linux. Sometimes I play CS 1.6 with Wine on Linux, bot mostly I play in Windows.
I am totally addicted to crossfire
