    Linux RPG/MUD/MMORPGS


    To say that I enjoy gaming is an understatement, however I really don't see that many games, or i'm not sure where to find them. When i played around in Windows I would occasionally visit Download.com to look for games, on chance i came across a MMORPG and loved it, though it was sluggish at times (char progression). Can anyone recommend some games?

    thx in advance

    Half Life was always one of my favs in Windoze. I'll have to try it out in Linux now!

    If you like MUDding, I would suggest Medievia. I play it and it's a lot of fun.

    My favorite RPG

    My favorite RPG for Linux is Bioware's Neverwinter Nights. It's a 3rd person 3D-rendered RPG that follows Dungeons and Dragons rules (not just a clickfest like Diablo, although that's a neat game too). It doesn't ship with a Linux client in the box, but you can download it off Bioware's website.

    http://nwn.bioware.com

    If you have access to a MS Windows installation of it, your download times will go down considerably since you're going to need a lot of the game data files.

    The game is definitely not for the faint of hardware. It's fully 3D which means a decent video card is required, along with a pretty powerful CPU and a good amount of RAM. I have all 3 and it still skips at higher resolutions.

    All in all it's a great game though. The experience changes every time you play it (though the main quest is the same, you can take an almost infinite amount of sidequests or approach the main quest a different way) so it's one of those games you can keep coming back to. Not to mention the original NWN (without expansions) can be found at most game shops in the bargain bin for around $10USD. It's well worth it if your system can handle it.

    I love NWN, but don't play as much as I would like. I also play pnp D&D3.5 with some friends around the area. Nothing beats D&D with your buddies.

    Well, there are already two things here I agree with: D&D v. 3.5 with your friends is a great option, and, if you're into MUDs, Medievia is the best. Why am I ressurecting this thread? I was looking for rpgs to be played that weren't online, and this page showed up.
