I'd like to see World of Warcraft, Elder Scrolls 4 Oblivion, Never Winter Nights 1&2, Baldur's Gate series, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 1&2, Warhammer 40k Dawn of War, and Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines (but I think Troika went kaput sometime ago...). I'd be willing to pay $40.00 US

Yeah, Oblivion native under linux - that´d be cool! I´d also like to see ported flight-simulations like e.g. Il2 - Forgotten Battles. But first, there should be proper hardware support for joysticks / gamecontrollers in general.

Yeah, WoW would be nice (and being there an OSX version, it means there's a BSD version which could be relatively easily ported over... depending on the APIs used, of course). Oblivion would be another fine game to have around, that's for sure.

Since the original version of Neverwinter Nights has already been ported over, I'd like to see the sequel be ported too, however, a whole new company (Obsidian) is developing it, so it's not longer being developed by BioWare. There was a petition and an "official" way to ask for a port in the Atari forums, don't know if they were seriously considering a port or not, though. I'd guess they could get some estimates as to how well the would do based on the success of the original, plus other Atari games like UT2004...

Anyway, as for the Baldur's Gate series, I wish it would be a matter of porting over the engine and if you have the CDs just install the content, much like it's been for the Quake and Doom series of games, same goes for KOTOR I & II.

I usually buy games which have Linux support only nowadays. I'm sure there are going to be some fine games for Windows and maybe Mac (now that it is getting so popular due to Intel architecture), I just hope more commercial games are ported too. There's a good chance that Linux games could be very profitable.

Old school RTSs mostly
Starcraft, Warcraft, Red Alert, Tiberian Sun, and so on.
I don't really buy computer games anymore, my 4-year-old comp can't take the good ones.

Among many games I would like to see Lineage & WoW.
I still keep my windows partition to play lineage.

While reading a linux magazine there was a small article about a site collecting signatures(with real name,phone number & e-mail) to send them to blizzard, in order to make native linux client of WoW.

It's a nice move with many ppl already registered, I did and I believe it could work this way.

Um for the people asking for Neverwinter Night 1 and 2 they both can be installed naitively on linux. There should be a installer on the first disc and you can also follow the instructions on the website. If you do a google of something like "nwn linux installer" there are some that a guy made to install graphically.

I emailed ZUN about using OpenGL and SDL... and I've never felt stupider. I mean... dumber. He's probably going to say no and laugh at me because I'm not Japanese, but I e-mailed him anyway.

I have a long list. The top ones I'd want see are SimCity 4, IceWind Dale II, HalfLife 2, Morrowind, Oblivion and Warcraft 3. Maybe World of Warcraft, although it'd be unnessecary, considering it works fine on Linux with Wine.


alert, diablo, free, game, games, linux, native, starcraft, supertux, unreal
