Native Linux Games


Hey guys,
I don't play games too much but every now and then I like to fire one up and blow off some steam. I have a few favorites that I default to, but I am always searching for new games.

What are your favorite Linux Native games?

Ur-Quan Masters is a good one. It is pretty much a free Linux porting of Star Control or Star Control 2 (can't remember which).

Urban Terror, ETQW are both great games I play. I have played Nexiuz and OpenArena before, but doesn't ring my bell enough to keep going back. I used to play rappelz which is a cool remake of World of Warcraft.

You should add assaultcube and hedgewars.

I didn't know about mule, and it isn't on the game tome, maybe I'll add it.
