Re: What games would you like to see ported to Linux?


Well, for me it is easy: the TotalWar series (i.e. Shogun, Medieval, Rome...) and Morrowind series...

Definitely a port of the Half-Life *client* would be timely ... no fair we can 'only' run servers, we wanna play too! ;-)

On another note, do we have to pick *existing* games to port, or can we suggest *new* games? If so, I would love to see Wizards of the Coast's finally making "RoboRally" into a computer game (since they no longer print/ship the board game, anyway) -- or at least a decent clone of it.

May be repeats, but:

Half-Life + 2, Counter-Strike, Starcraft + Broodwar, Warcraft III, GTA: Vice City, Halo (GL with THIS one!), Chessmaster 9000, Rollercoaster Tychoon + Expansion, Need for Speed HP II.

Ambitious, but, what the heck.

Why? I keep my Windows partition because of them. Doesn't that say a lot?

oh, and I bought ut2003 (it is compatible with linux)
I would buy more, but, that isn't much of an option right now

Battlefield 1942! And 'Worms World Party' because is very hilarious. I love these games.

I play both games with some friends (lan party), and I hate to boot into Windows XP for these games, and return to Linux to play Unreal Tournament. (because the Linux version works better )

Yes, and I would add NFS 5 - Porche Edition to that...

Not totally related to game port, but I would love seeing a descent Genesis/SegaCD/Sega32X and NES 8 bits emulators on Linux. There are few NES 8 bits around, but it's not by any chance close to the performance/compatibility of Windows emulators... Not even xMame seems to accept netplay yet.

I don't think old games will ever have a port for Linux either (as TombRaider or Noone Lived forever), but I do, would like to see a lot of new (if not them all) coming for both systems .

Just to be clear, you should still post even if you see the game you wanted already listed. It's the number of people that are interested in each game that we are interested in.

Cool I then vote for:

Counter-Strike
Delta Force (all of them)
Tombraider (all of them)
Star Wars; Jedi Outcast
Star Wars; Jedi Academy
Star Wars; Jedi Knight Darkforces 2
Hitman 1 & 2
Ghost Recon (and all exp. packs)
Diablo 2 and LOD
Torment
Kohan
Morrowind
GTA3
DeusEX
Noone Lives Forever 1 and 2

That I can remember I've all of them and they were pretty expensive, so I should not buy them all again for a Linux version. I know this is not the point of this thread, but we should really support the older games(insert winex here) because I don't believe many peoples would be re-buying games that they already have but for Linux. An installer would be nice, but again, I would never buy those games again Only Jedi Academy 2 was about 60 bucks ...

My Votes:

Morrowind and Tribunal (I own both and keep win98 on my Athlon just to play them)
HalfLife 1 and 2
Magic The Gathering (The old Microprose version...currently I'm running it on VMWare on my laptop...releasing the source on that one would be awesome)
Any of the StarWars games yes...
StarFleet Command (I own the first one)
Descent Freespace (the first one)
All the Baldur's Gate series

I'd like to send kudos to the makers of NeverWinter nights however, because as long and painful the waiting and beta process was, the client works damn well imho and I've had a lot of fun with it.

I would like to see some of the stratagy games like

Command and Conquor series
War Craft series
Age of Empire series

Also some of the shooter games like

Doom series
Quake series
Duke Nukem series

Why? Because I like them. I would esp. like to see some of the older games in the above series such as C&C because some of them won't run properly under XP with new equipment since the drivers are built into the games and don't simply talk through the OS. This is esp. true with sound. Some of the older games only talk to the older soundblaster. C&C won't even install under XP and sound won't work if you don't have a true soundblaster card. As a result I have to keep a system with Win 98 just to play these games. I would like to get rid of Win 98.

I'd definetely say Half-Life (may be quite easy to hack, isn't the Quake 2 source GPL now?, also supports OpenGL)
Half-Life 2 when it comes out. (also will be essential when all the HL mods (Day of Defeat, Counter-Strike, International Online Soccer ) are ported to HL2)
Ghost Recon.
Deus Ex.
Also it would be nice if there was a decent MMORPG client available.
