I have just tried Battle for Wesnoth. While the gameplay is not my cup of tea, I must say that presentation-wise, this game is far above most open-sourced games I've played. Music, graphics, gameplay, stability, portability... everything is top notch here.

I better learn how to play it

What no Cube? I would think a fully-capable, modern, high powered first person shooter would make the list. Now, it doesn't have *all* the polish of Halo, but frankly it's not far behind. Plays like a Quake-improved.

+1

Cube, Sauerbraten and AssaultCube are great games. Cube is especially good for low end machines as it's really fast and Sauerbraten is great if you have a PC with reasonable performance (i.e. something more powerful than Intel GMA graphics).

And where is Blobby Volley2???????? Surely the greatest game ever created.

Also I love GNU Backgammon, definitely deserves a place on the list.

I play Battle For Wesnoth probably more than any other game on Linux. I don't think the learning curve is steep at all. It is a game where you have to think, though, or else you'll get hammered by the AI.

Another good game I'd like to see on the list in the future is PokerTH, which is the best free Texas Hold'em program I have ever seen.

Another vote for Sauerbraten here. It has great graphics and game play. No list of linux games is complete without Sauerbraten. Nexuiz and World of Padman are excellent as well.

If you are using Ubuntu as your profile says, most of the games posted here are on the repositories. Just open Synaptic and search for them

I like SuperTux, Neverball is a good Super Monkey Ball clone as well

But I vioted for SuperTux, but it's fun to play, it's not as broken and you can create your own levels, can somebody say Mario Level Remakes?

I've played Urban Terror quite a bit back in the days you needed Quake 3 to play it. It was good, but I kept playing CS anyway. Until I got tired of Counter-Strike cheaters and pre-puberty admins and stopped playing it all together.

I should give Urban Terror another shot

Nexuiz looks so good, it looks commercial. Great graphics, fast gameplay... when I'm not playing UT2004, this is what I play. ^_^
