    Games in Linux


    Can anyone suggest some good non-strategy non-braintwisting boom-boom(action) or vroom-vroom(racing) games for Linux (with hopefully links to download them)?

    Some few months back, I had tried installing some games. But the graphics were either too kiddish or too bad ? The former was acceptable for a day or two, but the latter!! How can you play a game when u cant differentiate between 'water' and 'land' (personal naming) , and water is supposed to be 'danger'?

    The only reasonably good games were the ones which I installed using Wine.

    I would add Nexuiz to the FPS list.

    Torcs - The Open Car Racing Simulator - it should be available in your package manager.

    Online Assault Cube (=FPS)?? I'm not a gamer though and I don't have high end graphics anything. AC runs very well on modest hardware (and low bandwidth) and the gameplay is nice and fast.

    I just wonder if there is a decent FPS game for Linux which could be played offline. I mean something like Half-Life, or any other good old fashioned game, which has a starting and ending point. Something like Sauerbraten, but with more episodes. Do you know some?
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:

    It's only in Beta (Blood Frontier: Home) and I only found out about it today so I don't know what it's like

    Not for free, but all the Dooms and Quakes run in Linux.

    I downloaded SuperTux... But its still the same old problem...

    I think there might be some incompatibility with my graphics card...
    When Tux moves, I can see a continuous stream of Tux (which stays for half the screen) and I can barely discern what's going on...

    I think I have played Nexuiz or Tremulous or both before...
    (Which game is it that has 4 other players, 1 colonel, 1 girl, 1 japanese girl,etc... I don't exactly remember?)
    The graphics were quite good but I had no idea what was to be done in the game..The arena was so small and if I killed them all, I was there where I had started from... Shouldn't I go to some next level?

    Gonna try Wolfenstein tonight...
    Thanks for the link...
