    A perfect game for you..

    # sudo apt-get install smc
    # sudo apt-get install supertux
    Use # smc to run it.
    You can run supertux from menus.

    Its a Mario clone with good graphics. even slow computers can run it.
    Never make any misteaks.

    Awesome games! I enjoy some of the simple games. Do you know any old FPS that have been ported to linux? I'm talking like doom or duke nukem graphics. What about some low end graphic mmorpg's? Sorry if it seems like I am asking for a lot here, I'm just looking for some simple stuff for when I am board.

    Well, actually both DOOM and Duke Nukem have been ported to Linux, but they still require the original disks for the WAD files. There is a free clone of DOOM called (appropriately) FreeDOOM that should be available in the repositories.

    I don't know much about MMOs, but there is an action-rpg in the vein of Diablo available called freedroidrpg. It's pretty fun.

    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Well if you want to play old DOS games you can install DOSBox or DOSemu.
    # sudo apt-get install dosbox dosemu gfceu gngb pcsx
    You can even play old NES games using NES Ultra - a NES emulator
    Play Station games with PCSX, and even GameBoy and Nintendo X_X
