team fortress 2 is pretty good.

Were you expecting a more specific answer than "yes"? LinuxAria has a few good writeups: http://linuxaria.com/tag/games

I recently played a math game where there was a ball with the answer in the middle and 10 ball circling around and you have to pick the correct answer. I don't remember the game or distro since I try a lot. Any help would be appreciated.
