The most annoying bug for me is the mouse pointer is offset from where it clicks. I am guessing about 16 pixels off.

The only one I would vote for is a roguelike, such as Nethack, which is on this list, but the last release was maybe 10+ years ago. I nominate Moria (also old but that finally had a a release that changed it to Free/Libre/Opensource lately) and its derivative Angband, and its popular derivatives Pernband/Tome2 & TomeNET. Also, consider Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup. All these four had recent updates. I would most want to vote for Angband or Tome 2, depending which was updated most recently. Years ago Tome 2 was Pernband, but got sued by Anne McCaffrey who wrote about her world, Pern, so the setting of the game was changed, and in some version of Tome2/TomeNET, it was Middle-Earth (so best not to call it Pernband in the voting, if added). There is also an experimental Tome 3 that never really got used much, and the current Tome 4, which I dislike, rather than Tome 2 being updated by other maintainers, such as Tome2-ah (by Anonymous Hero).

Wesnoth! :))

I have had good fun with quite a few of them but i keep finding myself playing Wesnoth campaigns written as add-ons.

Sadly i couldn't find it in the list until afteer i had voted for Glest. Glest is fantastic too of course but Wesnoth deserves to win imo.
Regards from Tom

Oh man, this is a tough one.

I don't really follow current affairs in Linux gaming. Not that it brought any major new developments to the table this year specifically, but I voted for nethack since it's really the only one of these I play regularly.
