HalfLife, Portal, BioShock


I use Linux 99% of the time, and Windows XP 1% of the time when I just have to play a game made for Windows XP. If the games were installed on Linux, I would play the games a LOT more often. It's really just too much of a pain to boot Windows when I am already working in Linux and want a break.

My favorite games are: the HalfLife series, Portal, and BioShock.

When/If Valve/Steam come to Linux I'll be in Heaven.

I doubt I'll ever buy a game for Windows again (or buy another Windows OS for that matter), but would definitely pay retail $ for a game that works natively in Linux.

I am willing to pay the amount in which I bought the game itself. I would like to be able to play the game called "Fate". I used to play it all the time but now I can't sadly :'(

Why not all Games ?

I am really fond of gaming but unfortunately there aren't much games made for linux. It is the only reason that i still have windows wasting some of my hard disk space.

I would really like to see all of the games to be made for linux.

However, I have blood frontier on linux which is really great to play.

Civ3.. Alpha Centauri, Panzer General 1 (2&3 sucked)
Tropico (or at least fix the wine bug with the mouse)
Star Trek Armada 2
One more time, the point of being able to run in WINE is NOT the issue here!!! We are talking about actual ports for LINUX.

The whole point of this is to be able to do away with Wine and get the software vendors to do their part and port things not only for Windows or Mac, but also have a port for LINUX as well!

Alot of people with that attitude (I can get it working under WINE) will just discourage what we are trying to accomplish)!

Ahhhhhhhhh....but the only thing that Blizzard got accomplished was the name change....

If you would like to download freecraft for linux, here you go -

The name Freecraft was changed to STRATAGUS!!!

From me to you!!!

>Bubble Snooker is my favourite game
Mobile Bubble Snooker works on GNU/Linux via wine (tested 09-13-09). I agree that all games should be ported in native form to GNU/Linux, but at least you can play the game in wine in the meantime.

Seems like an addictive game. Reminds me of Frozen-Bubble or MonkeyBubble, both of which are available in the Linux repositories. Have you tried those games?

Cheers!
