"Supporting the open
Linux games from Loki are still
around, and for a resonable price you can get them all. I started my
game collection quite a few years ago with the tin boxed edition of
Quake III. I found it on the shelf at EB Games for $9.99 usd and from
there I was hooked.
I went to Loki's site and found out they were out of business, what a
disapointment, so I downloaded the patches and went in search of the
other games that were on the site.
Soon on I found the other games on Ebay. In my search
on the net and through advertisements and word of mouth I also found
retail games that were natively ported to Linux. Along with that,
I had been using wine to run some
of my windows games. When Counter-Strike went to the 1.6 version I had
trouble running it so I subscribed to Transgaming, the makers of
Wine-x now known as Cedega.
This is a listing of some of the games I play and still
currently play on Linux starting with some of my favorite games, then to
the windows games that I play using Cedega. Most of the games listed
here are from the hard work of the guys at icculus.org
and Icculus himself, the artwork and banners names ect. are all
copyright of their respective owners and companies. For an extensive
list of games that work in Linux you can go to the Linux game list
NeverWinter Nights , this games
rocks in Linux, its native code makes for good gameplay. You can use
the console, also you can also use the CEP (community expansion pack)
to add more play and custom maps to the game. All three versions work
in Linux the orginal NWN, SoU, and HotU. for those of you not familliar
with the acronyms SoU = Shadows of Undrentide, HotU = Hordes of
the Underdark. I enjoyed this game and all the expansions and
would recommend them. You can now get them all in the Platinum pack adn
either download the Linux binarys from the site or install it from CD,
( I'm not sure if they put the Linux binarys on the cds yet).
Unreal Tournament Series
and Mods. The Unreal Tournament series includes all of the Unreal
Tournament titles, the original, UT2003, and UT2004. All of the titles
are based on one on one action and also team play for some good
multiplayer action. Two MODs that are based on the Unreal engine are
Tactical Ops and Troopers. Tactical Ops is a team play MOD where one
team is a Anti-Terrorist unit and the other team is a Terrorist unit
each with objectives to acomplish while trying not to get killed by the
other team.Troopers is a Star Wars MOD with gameplay similar to Unreal
Tournament except with a Star Wars theme. There are other MODs for the
whole series, but I am only famillar with the two mentioned and can
only rate these.
ID Games ,
Quake3, Quake4, Return to Castle Wolfenstein are some of the games from
ID games. these run excellent on linux.
games above are from the major gamemakers, but there are quite a few of
the smaller companies that make games that run on linux with native
binaries. Listed below are some of my favorite games. Demos are
