It's true, Half Life 2 is by far the best.
And although I haven't tried it, I was sure it also had a Linux port?
Can someone confirm this and if possible add it to the voters list before time runs out.

Otherwise, I'll have to settle on D3!

Regardless of which game is the best game (subjective), Epic is definitely supporting native Linux gamers more than any other company right now IMHO.

UT2004 I just love that game...Doom 3 rocks as well but the multiplayer on UT2004 is unmatched and thats why it gets my vote.

UT2k4 all the way

Hopefully when they new engine from Bioware comes it, their new toolset will work in linux. Theres only a few reasons I have kept my windows install with such a nice computer:

3ds Max 6(and soon 7)
MS Office 2003 Pro
NWN Toolset

After that I use Linux for everything else, since there is a perfect equivelant for everything else. I would dump Windows if only Discreet would release a Linux Port of 3ds Max though...

OK, here's a real tough one. For those who don't keep up on games, there are two mentioned that run on Linux, and are both free. Enemy Territory, and America's Army. Both of these are multiplayer, and both of these are very modern games. But I would say that Enemy Territory is better, the graphics engine is a little crisper.

How can anyone argue with two games that are totally free, and run on Linux. Both of which are very good multiplayer games. Enemy Territory and America's Army. These far outweigh the others, there is no comparison. You can have enormous LAN parties and not have to worry about distributing copies to your friends, how nice is that.

UT2004 is one of the best games i've ever played. Add Linux support from the box to this, and we have a winner. The community have to endorse companies that offer Linux support so well as Epic does.

PS: Americas Army and ET are commercial games?

UT2004! Just because when I buy the "normal" Windows Box I have the Linux Version included! All other Games I have to download or buy a Linux Only Version. And with 2004 they even have a Tux on The Box

I hope they continue the good work and hope they will even support Linux equal to the Windows Version (Manual, System Requirements, Support People that know there exists a Linux Port ).
