    Linux Games


    Aloha,
    I see a lot of posts about no games on Linux. So this is my request for everyone who reads this to list games they have on Linux and post a website where the game can be downloaded and installed. I am talking games that run natively or are OS independent. Yes I know of Cedega and Wine. I am not interested in those. I want native games so I can visit those sites and thank them and support them.
    Mahalo,
    Edward

    The immensely popular Unreal Tournament series games all run natively on linux. http://www.unrealtournament.com

    UT2004 has some very good mods, such as Red Orchestra ( http://www.redorchestra.clanservers.com ).

    This is mainly what I play on Linux.

    Edit: Fixed links.

    doom 3 (still need to get sound working right) is beautiful in linux. and like mentioned before, ut 2004, has a 64 bit client for linux, americas army is a free game for linux that puts counter strike to shame (like it should be) and quake for is from what i hear suspose to be good.

    basicly any game thats worth anything is also make for linux, except strategy games, blizzard needs to get there act together.

    I know that you said that you are not interested in cedega or wine, but since I've gone over to solely linux installs, I've found that oftentimes installing a game with either of these performs better than a native install on xp...

    Games

    Aloha,
    Mostly Genesus, I wanted to compile a list of games that will run on Linux natively or that were OS independant so folks could see that yes, Linux does have games and they are pretty cool. After that I was going to show that Cedega and Wine work for Windows games if set up right. I was hoping to dispell the "gaming" myth surrounding Linux.
    Mahalo,
