If you like strategy games, there is freeciv. Very good and it runs natively, no need for wine etc.

There is also those old favourites, like tuxracer. Is supertux a similar one?

Couple questions.
  • Which version of Freedom Force are you playing
    How did you go about installing it. (I am using Wine 0.9.54 on Freespire 2.0.8 and have had no luck in installing it)

Has anyone tried Zaxxon Retro-remake?

This game is fun, identical to the arcade game and runs in Linux or Windows.

well lately, I've just gone into windows to play games. CoD4, Counter Strike Source, Battlefield 2, and the like... I wish there was a better way to get all these games on Linux, or get enough support for them to be released for Linux, though I don't see that as something probable in the near future.
