Mystic Mine is really good: simple to learn, difficult to master.

I haven't played it, but the Unreal Tournament 2004 mod called Alien Swarm has been hugely popular lately.

(Because the Windows remake was just released on Steam).

Lately I played Amnesia the dark Descent, which runs natively on Linux and will scare the heck out of you (it's a first person survival with no weapons, so not properly an FPS). Linux version costs around 15 euros and you will support both the developers and games on Linux by getting it

Sanctum is pretty fun too: it's a turret defense mod for Unreal (, but I only played it on vista so I can't tell you whether it works or not on Linux.

UT2004, as they already told you, is a must but it might be hard to find it legally; otherwise you can give a look on (I guess older games tend to work better in Wine). I got Divine Divinity from there and it works like a charm but you can browse for FPS. Also Neverwinter Nights got ported if u like RPGs, but you should check if they provide the Linux version on gog.

Lately a friend told me about a game called Dark Horizons (but I don't know what kind of game it is): - from the screens I'd say an FPS?

And lastly, give RUSE a try - it's a RTS really, but it works perfectly in Wine.
Or, if you can make them run on Linux: Deus Ex, Dead Space, Fear, Undying, American McGee's Alice, Borderlands.
Have fun!

Just picked up Bullet Candy Perfect, and Irukandji from Charlie's Games. Along with the $5 bundle deal from Puppy Games for 3 games (Droid Assault, Titan Attacks, and Ultratron) Not sure if they qualify as the best, but defiantly fun! I'll end up with CTS from Titan Attacks

I've had the entire Penumbra collection plus Amnesia for a while, but have yet to play them.

UT2004, and ET:QW still gets a bit of play here. I've yet to beat Prey, maybe one day soon.

The two games that eat up more time than anything between my family and I, are Warzone2100 and World of Padman. World of Padman is not nearly as violent as other FPS games, plus my nieces and nephews (aged 7-13) love the characters.

Some of our other favs are -
Secret Maryo Chronicles
Spring RTS
Frets On Fire

Planning on purchasing soon -
Oil Rush
Eschalon Book II
Conquest Divide and Conqueror

GOG only distributes Windows Games. NWN should be much easier to make work native in Linux compared to UT2004. BioWare has instructions on using a pre-existing Windows installation for NWN. <-- Need to add that to my list.

no mention of Armagetronad? I'm shocked.

Another mention for Warzone2100. Best RTS I think I have ever seen.
