Games for Linux





zacky
I been using Linux quite for long time now and sometimes when I get bored, I tend to finding myself looking for some games. I tried the following games in Linux but still finding some great games.

1. Left for Dead 2 - Steam
2. Counter Strike 1.6 - using Wine
3. SuperTuxKart
4. HedgeWars
5. Lugaru
6. 0 A.D
7. Alien Arena
8. Open Arena
9. Nexuiz
10. Wold of Goo

Take note, I am using 12.04 LTS Ubuntu distro.

It would be great to hear as well from you guys here.

With Steam Machines, I imagine Linux gaming is going to grow at an exponential rate. I'm going to give a nod to the first game that came to my mind: Bastion. It's one of the most fun action-RPGs I've ever played. The narration is superb and the art style is beautiful. Also, pretty sure you don't need to use Wine to run Counter Strike 1.6, I think it was released on Linux.

Check this out. I think the Linux gaming future is bright, seeing major titles like Metro: Last Light and nearly all of Valve's catalog being ported over. I remember I used to only play Nexuiz on my Linux partition (ran so much better than it did on Windows), but now it could see myself playing so much more.

I try to stay with games that are free software (open source). I have played various games but one of the games I have played the most on Linux is WarMUX (previously named Wormux) but nowadays don't play games very often. I have to admit I sometimes play old non-free games in DOSBox and ScummVM.

But good to hear,these games are working on linux.

Thanks for the link William. However I really prefer open source and free games only though sometimes when I enjoy so much the free trial of the game and becomes addicted to it, I tend to buy it as of course support for the game developers.

Ah, fair enough. I've just accumulated so many games that I have yet to touch, I've sort of left the open source ones behind (most you've already listed). Still, while not open source, I would highly recommend Team Fortress 2. It's free and while it isn't as fun as it was a few years ago, it's still a great game if you're new to it.
