Most joysticks are supported by the standard joystick interface, though there are no programs (that I know of) which will give you force-feedback support or vibration fuctions.

i would like all of the sold-out range ported to linux (or make them platform independant so apple worshippers can use them too! (not that i like apple (except the fruit kind)))
they are so cool and at 5 apeice or 3 for 10 they dont hurt the walllet (not the KDE wallet you dimwit! the one you hold s in!)
i am a fan of any non violent real time stratagy like, simCity 3000 rolercoaser tycoon 2, Industry giant 2, and some slighly violent ones like dugeon keeper 2.

Just make sure you grab the right loki installer for your version of UT (there's a UT 4.36 installer for regular UT and a GOTY installer).

You can try the LokiInstallersForLinuxGamers site (www.liflg.org), there's a great deal of games that support an installer, even Windows games through Wine or Cedega!

I would love to see all of Sierra's Quest games (Space Quest, Leisure Suit Larry, King's Quest, etc.) ported to Linux. In addition, I would love to see most games that come out to support Linux as well as Windows. I mean, a lot of games are made for Mac and Windows, right? Why not include Linux in that list? If they build their games properly from the beginning, porting them shouldn't be hard. Making a game cross-platform compatible is easy, so long as you take the necessary steps throughout the development process.

That said, Running With Scissors made their Postal 2 game available for Linux too: http://www.gopostal.com

Warning, that game is really not for kids. Or queasy people.
