I haven't voted yet because Alephone (Engine) and the Marathon series (Games) are missing from the list.

Additionally should stuff like Openmw, Arx Libertatis and Dhewm3 be included? Free engine, proprietary game data.

One reason I think 0 A.D. is so popular is because it shows up at the top of the list every time synaptic is opened.

j/k I haven't played it yet, I'm planning to try it soon.

Lately, I've been playing MegaGlest and enjoy it quite a bit. I've been a fan of RTS games ever since my nephew introduced me to StarCraft.

Now that the voting is over, I now need to find out what all these games are (and other apps in the other categories). Maybe people who used these programs can post a quick description of what the games / apps are for those of us who are not familiar with them. Please? Pretty please with honey on top (because sugar is bad for you)!

Hi Roy. If you double click on a word like say NetHack and then right click it will get a quick link to a description of each...

Here's a description of MegaGlest from its website:

Quote:
MegaGlest is an entertaining free (freeware and free software) and open source cross-platform 3D real-time strategy (RTS) game, where you control the armies of one of seven different factions: Tech, Magic, Egypt, Indians, Norsemen, Persian or Romans. The game is setup in one of 17 naturally looking settings, which - like the unit models - are crafted with great appreciation for detail. A lot of additional game data can be downloaded from within the game at no cost.
There's also some videos on YT.
