Post Native Linux Games list


Seeing as how many people come to this forum in particular and ask about native linux games I think it would be nice to have a sticky thread with a running list of games. I seem to hear about a new game every day, and as more and more are either ported or developed the list will expand. If an admin would be so kind as to sticky this thread please (if possible).

On to the list (in no particular order). Feel free to reply with any Native games you know about that I have failed to mention. Provide links whenever possible.

OK, obviously there are hundreds if not thousands of native games out there. This list only represents the ones that I personally know about, and that I have residing on my hard drive right now. Lets grow this list as much as we can.

Here's my addiction:

Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri -- unfortunately, Loki is no longer around but it'd be nice to see the code OpenSourced, or see a company continue this awesome game (another expansion pack)!
