DXBall
Snood (hey, thats just like Frozen Bubble)

eye candy is not really necessary unless the graphics are so bad that it interferes gameplay.

There is no brain food in pressing jump a billion times to finish a level.

....people mentioned the 2d games....hell, i'm still waiting for SNES to make a comeback , i got my ZSNES or SNES9x, and VisualBoy Advanced, (as well as their hardware counterparts . though, i suppose that doesn't necassarily constitute a 'port' ....it would be cool to play FinalFantasy Tactics Advanced or Tactics Ogre with a mouse though, not to mention full screen on my notebook (with full support for higher resolutions that is ...240x160 just doesn't cut it)

LavaDevil94, you forgot Doom Legacy . I don't know how it stacks up to what you listed, but it certainly has all the features I want (mouse look, OpenGL, up to 1600x1000 resolution, etc...) (Click on the Sourforge site for downloads.)

As for games I want ported:

#1 Counter Strike, HL/HL2
#2 Warcraft 3
#3 Battlefield and Desert Combat
#4 Sim Tower definitely! (When can we get a Sim Tower 2, enough with the Sims!)
#5 Command and Conquer Red Alert 2/ Yuri's Revenge
#6 Final Fantasy XI
#7 How about Duke Nukem Forever? (wait, by the time its ready for release, Linux will have taken over and they will have to spend another bazillion years porting it)

As for Halo, I wasn't excited when it was announced for the Mac, wasn't excited when MS bought Bungie and made them put it on the XBOX, and I wasn't excited when I played it on Windows (can you say move, shoot, open door, repeat?) Whats funny is that the Mac version was almost finished and would have been out in 2000 and they still havent gotten a port!

I cant wait for Doom 3 which I hear will be Linux capable and UT2004. I am glad to see some big name developers committed like id Software and Epic Games committed to Linux.

Sorry about the long post, keep the games rolling in!
