any good linux games?


something simple would be best as i've only got dialup
but are there any good games out there floating around.
i'd prefer strategy, but RPG or a bit of action is fine!

He said he uses dial-up. I don't think he's going to download a 260 MB file on his modem.

Probably Valve is going to make a server port for HL2 and neglect to make a client, just like they have done with every other Valve product before. So the Linux community, which is a hungry market and full of very potential customers, will remain an untapped resource for Valve.
