OMG Lan Party. Got Game?


OK, So i was invited to a mostly (if not all) win32 lan party. Multiplayer firt person shoot'ems are probably what they will be playing. I enjoy Quake3 but thats the only game i've really played 3D... as they all seem same and i had q3 for a while.


My question is, Im going to this party with only my GNU/Linux OS. I really want to show it off locally (that, YES it is capable of playing good popular 3D games). I'd like to get a list going of what multiplayer games are compat. with GNU/Linux.



Quake 3
Return to Castle Wolfenstien
...
more suggestions please.

NeverWinter nights as well. Works great in linux, however it's not a FPS, but rather a fantasy RPG. You can make a game short though, AFAIK.

Cool
