I would like to see Novalogic's deltaforce series ported to Linux.
Civilization III from Infogrames would be nice too.

I'd love to see most Games from EA.
Battlefield, Need for Speed Underground etc.
I's also like to be able to play Warcraft 3.
I'd pay the same as I normally would for a Windows Version.

i know that halflife 2 and world of warcraft are both supported with cedega... despite the fast that many people move to open source because of the extreme prices and lack of stabability that any win32 platform has to offer.... being a cheap bastard shouldn't be the reason for wanting to move over.... many of the games listed here are available through winex.... check it out... www.transgaming.com i'm not going to scroll through to see if this has been posted before since many people won't see the ones posted before cause it was probably somewhere in the middle...

lazychris2000..... to get your sound working... download and install alsa and it's dependencies.... then run alsaconf.... imo it's much better than what comes with the orig drivers.... either that or check the sound settings... you might be running an unsupported sound setting...

for your video... try editing your XF86Config-4 file and add that resolution... is you card installed properly and will your monitor support that resolution?

i never ahd much luck with wine and winex but the website says it supports half life 2 and world of warcraft so im tempted to subscribe. I couldnt see their forums on the webpage though, i want to have a look at them to make sure there arnt any big problems or anything.

yeah.. something is messed up with it right now, but i have successfully installed steam ( i know that it runs on a different engine than the hl2 does) but it's still by the same co and the structure will most likely be the same.... the only problem that i have run into was NFSU2... i got the game to install correctly but was unable to get the game to run... doesn't really matter to me that much, but perhaps i'll play with that a bit more....

i subscribe to cedega. the wow beta ran fine, and half-life 2 is set to be supported in the next release within the next week or so. i've also installed the sims, call of duty, and alice on cedega. in a sense, it's worth the $15, but in another sense, i'm doing the wrong thing by supporting proprietary software when it should be free in the sense that it helps the linux movement to have game support out of the box.

that is true.... all the hypocrasy! it burns! quick! somebody! i need a naked nurse!

i still have to see how doom3 runs.... i was running Condition Zero (windowed @ 800x600) and had my qemu running Windows 2000 and was still getting 50-70 fps on CZ....

Ahh this is why windows is still in business (besides the fact you dont have to be a rocket scientist to run it), if more games came out for linux it might be a little more popular.

The number one game for me would be Sims 2 - but that's mainly so my son would no longer have an excuse to have a Windows machine. Though he might say the Shockwave Player would also be necessary

For myself I'd be more interested in seeing World of Warcraft available in a decent Linux version. Even if this ran under Wine, I suspect it would be pretty slow.

Of course, as I talk about on my blog, this is one of the reasons I'm considering getting a Mac desktop the next time around. That way my son can have his games, and I at least am administering a UNIX machine...

Just my .02 worth.
