Thumbs up Linux Games


There should be a root thread for linux games, I'll moderate it j/k

If there is already one, then I must be blind..

I know games falls under software.. but c'mon!

-> All work and no play makes linus an idiot

Whats the purpose of having it on the main page? For me its not hard to navigate to that forum where it is.

I think Games fits perfectly as a Sub-Forum in Software, since it is actually Software. Too many forums on the main page to me is ugly and just uncalled for.

Regards.

Please do not hijack others threads as this forum is not here to ask Linux related questions, etc.

And to answer you, probably not cause they would have to be ported over to work in Linux first. The only way to get Windows only games to work is to use Wine or Winex in Linux...

Regards.
