For native Linux games, take a look here:

Do some reading about proprietary games ported to Linux:

And if there is no other solution, play games under Wine. Here are some tutorials:

Off the top of my head I can't think of the titles, but Suse 10 seems to come with a ton of games on the distribution CDs.
