I never was much of a gamer even when I used Windows, but I always loved the Delta Force series from Novatech, indeed I still have three of them (for which I paid the full price) standing on my shelf, I haven't played them in over 18 months though (since I erased Windows)

Seeing as I already bought these ones I would willingly pay the full price for any new versions which supported Linux...

i would say world of warcraft, but now that I think about it, the win32 version is buggy enough as it is.

Are you sure it's WOWC that's buggy, and not Win32?

I don't have WOWC, but many of my games seem to work better with Cedega than they did with WinXP. And DOOM 3 (running native with id software's patch, not emulated) CERTAINLY runs better. In fact, in WinXP, it kept giving me an error saying that I didn't have the CD in there - even when I clicked "Play" from the CD's AutoPlay menu.

No. Neverwinter Nights is pure RPG game, where as Diablo is an Action RPG (meaning, you don't get to have into account even half the things you would in traditional RPG games). Don't get me wrong, the formula worked wonders with D2, and it certainly is a very good game. NWN is a bit different, from the way you play it to the way you develop your character. If you get the game, make sure you read the manual before playing the game!

Well, where should I begin?

At first I'll be glad to see all the Blizzard games ported to Linux (excluding Warcraft II and previous ones).
Also my favourites (in order of appearance):

Warcraft III TFT
World Of Warcraft
Diablo II: LoD
Starcraft: Broodwar

About the games comming from different vendors like:

Lineage II
Heroes of Might and Magic III
Civilization III + Alpha Centaur

And of course: Counter-Strike

Humm, well seems like I'm done...

P.S. Anyone know which of these are runnable via Wine?

i MUST have a mech game a massive online style one like bzfalg would be cool but i have yet to find anything close i dont think there are ANY mech games for linux bar heavy metal and linwarrior
i would actualy prefer a linux own creation style as it means that it will be much easyer to add weapons custom things to the mechs to make them better. if anyone knows of such projects please let me know i miss that style of games they are not as popular as most games

Not sure about Wine, but StarCraft and Half-Life work with Cedega. As do, of course, Steam and all of the HL mods (CS, DOD. . .). Not sure about the other ones, though. Or Brood War - I only have StarCraft, but since it's an expansion pack, I would guess that it works.

Anyone know if Quake 4 will be made for Linux? I know DOOM III is, and I've heard that Quake 4 will use the same engine.
I know it will be made by Raven Software instead of id Software (who made all the DOOM titles and all the Quake titles. . . except this one) but from what I hear Raven is pretty close to id. . .


alert, diablo, free, game, games, linux, native, starcraft, supertux, unreal
