Doom 3? But it's relatively new port to Linux.

If linux has call of duty I vote for that. I'm not sure if it does but the windoze version is awsome.

Call of Duty
Medal of Honor
Sims 2
Half-Life 2

I don't know if any work on Linux but those are my ideas.

dustin_wielenga,

He's asking for commercial native Linux games. Not any games that work with an emulator like WineX

Neverwinter Nights! Shame the toolset doesn't work but you can play and it's faster than in windows

I voted for Doom3 but UT2004 has the 64bit port. It was a tough call for me.

Edit- NWN is amazing too. Such a massive community with some nice addons/modules.

Thumbs up

I voted for UT2004. The multiplayer in this game is unmatched. Its fun and with the support from the mod-community there are tons of maps, mutators, conversions to keep the game on my harddrive for a long time(until the next version!). This would explain the awards that its earning right now. Plus the big bonus was Epic had the Linux port available(on disc) when the game shipped! Kudos to them for that!
