Linux game with serious "oldschool" sense of creativity/depth/exploration

I'm new to Linux but I'm the kind of gamer who doesn't prioritize graphics and looks best on usually-but-not-necessarily older games of all genres that demonstrate a lot of creativity, nuance, careful level design, and overall well-thought-out design. For example, some of my favorite games ever are Zelda 3, Super Mario World, the Fallout games, Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, etc. Games with a certain degree of varying content and where a lot of effort has been made throughout for there to be fun things to find and explore, as opposed to games that rely completely on having a few simple but fun mechanics and a bunch of levels that are more or less easy to design.
I'm wondering if anyone can suggest some native Linux games like this. Graphics don't matter nearly as much as gameplay to me, but I do have a bias towards games that are visually more reminiscent of at least 16-bit rather than 8-bit era titles.

as the time of my first linux OS approaches i find myself looking at games. now i know most of my windows games won't work but i'm talking about real linux games. i've found one which i really like the look of. the only problem is that when i go to the download page i see that there are different versions to download for different versions of linux. this really confuses me - there's no mention of ubuntu there either and i'm not sure which ones are close to ubuntu and that would work, the games download page is http://www.wormux.org/en/download.php please can someone point me to the right version to get for ubuntu (i'm downloading the latest versionof ubuntu)
thanks a lot - you guys rock

LXer: Linux Game Repository With a GUI: DJL
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 23, 2009
Published at LXer:
Djl is an open-source (GPL licensed) game manager written in Python 2.5 for the GNU/Linux Operating Systems, inspired by Valve's Steam software for Windows for which anyone can submit games. The application is an interface to a repository which is continuously updated, and has lots of games. Basically, it's kind of like a PlayDeb with a GUI (please note that it does not use the PlayDeb repository, in fact it has nothing to do with it, I just gave it as an example). Djl displays information about the games in it's repository, screenshots and it also allows you to install the games with a simple click.
