Frozen Bubble

Frozen Bubble received my vote again this year and it will get my vote every year until it gets boring, which I don't see as ever happening. This game is simply addicting.

Tried Freeciv 2.3.1 recently, and really enjoyed it. The freeciv-gtk interface looks really nice these days. Had to uninstall it, though, because I was losing to much sleep.

Why Xonotic, but not Nexuiz? People still play it.

The problem is : Every year we have the same games nominated. Too bad Linux is definitely not a gaming platform. It's not system's fault, the reason is that softhouses can't see Linux as a commercially viable system.
IMHO Linux can handle gaming better than windows, but we need a far larger user base to get the attention of major software houses. ( As far as i know, ID Software is the only major company working on Linux gaming).
And unfortunately we keep voting the same games every year, some of them for maybe over a decade...

what about to add a poll for linux games non-opensource these new year? may be a lot of interesting games and companies comes to afloat...

Is true about ID Software, even play windows games from ID Software on wineHQ like Rage (the newest game) run very smooth...

what you think?

Best regards,
John

Freeciv will always be a love of mine. If that game never existed, I'd probably be 4 times as productive.

Wanted to vote Doom 3, which was open-sourced in 2011, but the game data is still non-free so I guess it doesn't count.

Voted Open Arena

I voted Neverball, but that's mostly because I like to hack on it…I think I've learned a few things from doing that.

As far as gameplay, though, I would've gone with OpenArena. It's been a while since I've played it, but IMHO it's awesome.
