Question What Windows Games are Ported for Linux???


Well broos....
I'm a newbie in Linux world, and i thing i'm not going back...
The thing is, i'm a hardcore gamer, and i only have games for windows...
Does anyone knows what Windows games are ported for linux and where can i find the ports for it???
I already know that:
-Quake III Arena/Team Arena
-Unreal Tournament
-Unreal Tournament 2003

All of this games rocks compared to Windows, when i tried all i cant belive what mi yes see---LINUX RULEZ---and itś not only speed but also soooooo mutch quality...

Neverwinter Nights. Plays great. www.bioware.com. You gotta look on the site a little bit, but they did port the game to Linux and it's real easy to install...

WineX allows you to run quite a few games on Linux. Commercial product however.

WineX is great . I love games. I just don't like Half-Life.... everybody LOVES it but I don't:

- Way to long for a Linux port
- Buggy as hell. Crashes when playing, crashes when connecting multiplayer, crashes when loading...
- Sometimes you get stucked at walls for no aparent reason
- Larges patches over 80 megas which does not fix anything(fixes multiplayer? maybe...)
- Worst Multiplayer ever, exception for Counter-Strike (only cheaters with wallhack and headshot stuff though...) and Day of Defeat (not so popular, you have to wait to find a server with peoples playing .
- Lost of sound if you minimize the game. In fact, this is the most newbie BUG ever. I don't understand how professional coders, with a multi-milionar best seller game can't fix it. When I've started coding DirectX, the first thing we've learned is, CREATE A RESTORE FUNCTION, in the case we lose the surfaces, as minimize the game... I think they skip those tutorials

I would continue a large large list, but I won't . I also Love Quake 3 and Soldier of Fortune, really cool games and in my box, runs way smoother then for Winslow .
Other native games for Linux are:

Heavy Gear 2
SimCity 3000
Alpha Century
Heroes of Might and Magic 3
Myth - Soul Blighter

If I'm not mistaken

For me these games work with winex with virtually no problems:
Tribes (an excellent game!)
Half Life/Counter-Strike/Day of Defeat etc...
Grand Theft Auto 3
Worms Armageddon

i would only encourage the usage of it by others. :)
