OS games for linux

20 posts in this topic

I've been bored and looking into free games for linux. Found a FPS called nexuiz but haven't tried it out yet. So what games have you all come across that are good/different/etc?

nethack, vegastrike, tux racer, supertux, Enemy Territory, and Americas Army are all pretty good games for linux that I keep around. Theres also a live cd for games based on knoppix called llgp that you may want to check out.

Nethack is a great game. Battle for Wesnoth is also a nice game to play on any platform.

Personally, I can waste away playing kTron, but that's just me.

I personally love Enemy Territory. It's the only pc game I tend to play at least once everyday. The other free game I play alot is Battle for Wesnoth which is a very cool rpg/rts, I also have other games which I play off and on but those are commercial games. My recommendation is Enemy Territory.

As a few others have said, Wolfenstein is probably my favorite. There's also a nice mod for it that I

play more often than Enemy Territory itself... It's Wolfenstein True Combat Elite (TCE)

They also have links to downloads for Wolfenstein. TCE seems to be a lot less popular though.

Oh yeah SuperTux is the shit. Also try a game called Wizard. Also Ubuntu comes with an interesting game of Worm (Name I don't recall (//Yoda speak)) that I was addicted to for like a month.

I really like ADOM, however it isn't OS, it is free afaik but no source code...a very very complex roguelike, but fun nonetheless. Doesn't hurt my opinion of it either that I can easily play it in an ssh session.

Oh, another FPS that's pretty fun to play is Tremulous. The game pits humans vs aliens in multiplayer

matches. It takes a while to get used to, but can be a lot of fun. Personally I prefer to play the aliens,

climbing on walls and biting people is more fun than shooting, but that's just my opinion.
