inux 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 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.    

    The 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 available.

The world of Darwinia is a virtual themepark, running entirely inside a computer network and populated by a sentient evolving life form called the Darwinians. Unfortunately Darwinia has been overrun by a computer virus which has multiplied out of control. Your task is to destroy the Viral Infection and save the Darwinians from extinction.

You play an Uplink Agent who makes a living by performing jobs for major corporations. Your tasks involve hacking into rival computer systems, stealing research data, sabotaging other companies, laundering money, erasing evidence, or framing innocent people.    You use the money you earn to upgrade your computer systems, and to buy new software and tools. As your experience level increases you find more dangerous and profitable missions become available. You can speculate on a fully working stock market (and even influence its outcome). You can modify peoples academic or criminal records. You can divert money from bank transfers into your own accounts. You can even take part in the construction of the most deadly computer virus ever designed.
