Which Linux RPG game is the best to play? Doesn't matter whether it's 2D or 3D.

    I do not personally play RPG games, but I found a site http://happypenguin.org that has some linux games categorized, the link below is to their RPG category.

  • There's a Diablo hack/slash/button blazer called FreeDriod. The controls take some getting use to, and the ability to access the editor makes it feel like SimCity when you send a tornado, but I like!
  • you can play also this rpg under linux systems

    mmorpg pokemon game PokemonCraft

    here is the complete pokedex of this game

    Well I still play Diablo - even on Wine it works fine. You will have to edit your firewall settings - aka the iptables - in order to update via Battlenet. Since Blizzard is trying to get people ready for Diablo 3, they don't mind if you forgot your keys.

    I have played several pokemon rpgs via emulators with Wine, but its a pain. Better off just getting them for a DS or other hand held device

    For actual open source, free games there are the following:
    [ol]
    [li] Freedroid [/li]
    [li] Singularity [/li]
    [li] NetHack [/li]
    [li] ADOM [/li]
    [/ol]

    There are sooo many rpg games out there for Linux its not even funny. With the help of DosBox you can enjoy your favorites.

    Check out:
    [ol]
    [li] abandonia.com [/li]
    [li] reloaded.org [/li]
    [li] sourceforge.net [/li]
    [li] hotud.org [/li]
    [/ol]

    The best bet is to search for abandoned games and for open source/free games. Basically though, if its developed for Linux its usually under a GPL or a freeBSD license.

    Some non-free games have been developed for Linux from S2 Games, but they are great games. Check them out at s2games.com/aboutus.php

    Have Fun

    Another interesting list is

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_open-source_video_games

    That list all sorts of fun stuff. Just "Ctrl-F" and look for "RPG".

    BTW:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crossfire_%28computer_game%29
    CROSSFIRE!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry.. *cough* has nothing to do with the game. Just brings back memories of a certain board game. *sigh*

    Also, as noted before, there are lots of cool games that are windows based that can run pretty well under wine.
    http://appdb.winehq.org/

    Psst... GuildWars. (Personally liked it better then WoW) and its super cheap and no monthly fees. If you are into the whole MMO stuff.

    Another non-free game that was one of my fav. was NeverWinter Nights. Which is native on linux.

    okay i mentioned nethack before but i found a better game yesterday that kicks ass have any of u played LostLabyrinth it is a roguelike similar to net hack but with better graphics and gameplay you can download it here http://www.lostlabyrinth.com/index.php?p=download they have ubuntu and debian packages for the game 32 and 64 bit packs

    also is there a way to get the pc version of ff7 to run in linux without using wine
  • Try this site http://www.playdeb.net/

    http://www.regnumonlinegame.com/

    runs natively on 32 and 64 bit Linux.

    MMORPG, decent graphics and seems a lot like Dark Age of Camelot if you played that.
