Doom 3 worked great on slack 10 but I can't get sound for d3 on slack 10.1 or any other distro I've tried besides slack 10.There are more recent linux binaries for D3 that I have not tried-maybe the sound issue was fixed.
The original unreal tournament also works very well.
You can use XQF as a server browser.It's like "The All Seeing Eye" for windows.
There is a soldier of fortune for linux that works well.
If there were a soldier of fortune 2 for linux I would never use windows.
People play RTCW on linux but I did not have much luck with it.
For some of the native Linux games (like UT2k4, which I also have), http://liflg.org/ is a good resource. Though the installers are a pain since on my system they can't find where UT2k4 is installed so I have to copy/paste the files, but in the end it works.
That is a good site. Their installers are somewhat problematic at times but it's nothing that can't be fixed with a little patience. Farcry, Morrowind, Baldurs Gate 2, Diablo 2, Homeworld, RTCW, Enemy Territory, Call of Duty.. The list goes on and on of Games that I've gotten to run quite well under Linux. Either with a native port, cedega, a loki installer or a combination of one or more, you can get alot of games running on Linux.
