I don't really have enough memory to play the kind of games that I like. I'd have to vote for scorched3D, though. I'm partial to the simulators.

I don't want to vote for any of those (that doesn't mean that they aren't good, but I wouldn't describe any of them as 'Open Source Game of the Year'). I think PlaneShift should be awarded with this title, but evidently I missed the nomination process entirely somehow.

I voted GNOME sudoku because it is the closest thing to ksudoku on the list. I play that at least 5 min./day

All my ranting about the advantages of OSS fell on deaf ears in convincing my family to switch to linux. All that changed after I showed them frozen-bubble.

Now my mother plays it constantly.
Seriously, I hear the frozen-bubble music non-stop from her room.
So I vote frozen-bubble all the way. It's more than a game, it's a way of life .

I've just discovered SameGnome, it's a lot like FrozenBubble. I almost like it about equally now.
Anybody running Ubuntu should have it preinstalled.

Well, I would vote aleph one, but it's modules did not start as F/OSS, so I guess that disqualifies it.
