    I can't set a definite favorite, so here are the games by category.

    For FPS - Urban Terror
    For Arcade Style - Astromenace
    And to kill time - lbreakout
  • Hmm, I have to chose between FreeCol, Simutrans, Nexuiz and Urban Terror. I think UT makes the deal.

    Neverwinter Nights - The best available RPG for Linux.
  • At the moment I play Spring/BA/CA the most. Awesome RTS, really one of the best out there.

    I'd have to say Enemy Territories: Quake Wars (Not Open-Source but works beautifully!) and Nexuiz!

    Both of these are fantastic FPS shooters and are great for an adrenaline packed experienced.

    I just loaded a guide to getting WoW running well in WINE. I wrote this a few weeks ago for a friend and he was up and running that day. I uploaded it to my blog section here on linux.com here is the direct link:

    I would have to say Freespace 2 using the Freespace 2 Source Code Project. Still an awesome game, even to this day.
  • [ol]
    [li]Quake III Arena[/li]
    [li]Unreal Tournament 2004, then 2007 (with linux installer on disc!)[/li]
    [li]Frozen Bubble[/li]

    Quake 3 is still my top favourite but I have not gamed in Linux in so long. My home PC is left on the XP partition since all I do after work is World of Warcraft and sleep.

    Is there a Native client for Unreal Tournament 3 ..... I thought that the client's development had stalled

    Savage2 and Nexuis. Sometimes Sauerbraten, but Linux games lacks good car racing game. The only worth racing project from my point of view was Racer, but now it is closed-source and not developed for linux any more :(

    i'm not much of a gamer, but occasionally it's nice to let some steam out with 30 minutes of fps.

    * enemy territory
    * urban terror

    unfortunately i must agree.
    if you're interested, i can recommend live for speed, which is free (base version) racing simulator and runs very well under wine. it's also light on resources for a racing game.

    I forgot to mention World Of Goo, which is graphically awesome, even on my netbook! I bought a copy after playing the free demo.
  • thanks for sharing the world of goo game with us. I have never heard of this one. Went to the website and saw that it is 20 dollars but there is a downloadable demo.

    All around, probably LGenerals. It is a Panzer General clone.

    Also, I have been having a lot of fun with FreedroidRPG lately. As far as FPS, Nexuiz is pretty good, maybe Alien Arena as well.

    When it comes to Linux native games it's absolutely OpenArena. That game is just genious.

    Trough Wine it's World of Warcraft. Why o why did they drop the development of the Linux native version?
