Word!

I 1000% agree. Though it plays very well in Wine (pretty much no difference from Windows performance-wise), I'd rather have a native port.

There is a native version of Quake III ! You can even by a special Linux CD!!

I'd love to see "Settlers 5", "Sim City 4", and the old "Earth 2140" and "Earth 2150" - and / or other strategy games like C&C, Age of *, ...

I want every game to be ported over to linux ;D I would love it if mainstream games like WOW, guild wars, hl2, etc with all their man power would release a linux binary without hesitation. It would be nice if we could start expecting a linux build instead of hoping. Take care.

One of the risks of tools like Transgaming or Wine is that (and that's why I see them as a double edged blade when it comes to gaming). Companies may simply not invest enough to get their stuff native and just making them Wine/Cedega compatible. While compatibility is OK, a lot of features that would other wise be available in a native port wouldn't be included (like per-user settings and saves, etc, like id games' Quake series, or Epic's Unreal)

City of Heroes - yes, I know it runs under Cedega, and folks on the CoH forums say it would probably run under Wine. But, I'm a Linux newbie and don't know how to run anything under Wine, and have a hard time believing that anything will run as well under an emulator (I also know Wine supposedly stands for Wine Is Not an Emulator) as it would as native.

Do you play on Live? If so you will have to try me Halo 3 when it launches. I have been away from Halo 2 for a long time but used to be ranked at 27 WITHOUT cheating, but most of it was because of the sniper rifle, absolutely lethal with it.

But since my Halo 2 days are gone and I'm rust as crap I want Maple Story..........yea right its a mmorpg....like I will ever see that happen....

Actually many MMOs have potentially better chances at having Linux ports than anything from Microsoft GameStudios.
