sims n black & white ( good time killers)
cossacks, age of empires etc, panzer generals (strategy, trun-based etc)
all FPS's
and of course, anything having to do with starwars

although, the computer I have now probably would even be able to run most modern cames
(800 mHz, 256 RAM, slooooooow fsb, geforce 2 gfx card)

No point in Warcraft 3.. it runs perfectly in wine
I'd rather see something else, like Civ3
I know freeciv.. and have used it but it's not as good (I am planning to contribute to it, over summer )

Civ3.. Alpha Centauri, Panzer General 1 (2&3 sucked)
Tropico (or at least fix the wine bug with the mouse)
Star Trek Armada 2

Yes Nechos, its possible. I recommend useing WineX for Warcraft3 though, not sure if the regular wine runs it. I get 100% perfect performance out of that game every bit as fast as my friends that run it on Windows.

Oh yeah, and I'd like to see halflife 2 and every single Dungeons and Dragons game have linux native clients. Also the Neverwinter Nights Aurora Toolset would be a great thing to have.

I'd like native ports of the X-Wing series games (X-Wing, TIE Fighter, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, and X-Wing Alliance).

I'd also like to see native ports of the Star Trek games (BoTF, StarfleetCommand1-3, Star Trek Armada 1&2, etc.).

I'd really like to see Warcraft III also. Unreal Tournament 2003 is enough first person shooter for me, but I really haven't found anything at the level of Warcraft III for *nix.

I know it'll never happen....but there's ONE game I'm considering buying, and then booting into Windows to play.....HALO!

Heck, I've almost bought an xBox just to play it!

Before asking for ports, take a look at whats coming out too. Not sure how many know about Dominions 2, but from what I can see its going to be great in terms of strategy:

http://www.shrapnelgames.com/Illwinter/d2/1.htm

Graphics don't look so bad either.

Yes we need more flight sims, especially combat ones, sports games etc.

In fact, feel free to mail or e-mail the vendors yourself, just be polite (unless its Macromedia...) and state that you're a Linux user. Numbers are hard for them to come by and only a few companies have the balls to take this step (Bioware, Illwinter and ID to name a few) and most are actually quite happy .
