    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.
    Can't tell an OS by it's GUI

    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
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    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...
