Only buying native linux games!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 17, 2012
I have an idea to get more games developed for linux. Vow to never again buy a non-native linux game. Call it the "No Non Native Gamer" movement (N3G), or whatever.. I have considered the consequences, and would wait it out, even for a couple years!
If you take a second to consider its not difficult to envision the progression to seeing mainstreams titles popping up in the repos, apt-get install Left4Dead2 But seriously, first it would become the ideal platform to kickstart indie game developers, these companies would grow with the funding of abstinent gamers trying to get some action, which would cause larger companies to feel threatened. This threat would rise in the ranks until eventually guys like valve won't just be trying to get something working, they would have to! It might even become straight up profitable to port to this percentile of the market?
Some might argue why bother? Valves looks like they are trying, and hell unity is now 100% supported in li

Good Linux Games
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 29, 2005
I just thought it would be cool to have a thread where users could come post good games(or bad ones i suppose) that they've played on linux. I love gaming, but I love Linux also and can't live w/o windows only because of the games. I have spent alot of time looking for good games for linux, but usually come up with something that I would've paid $9.99 for to run on my 486 back in the mid 90s. I want something better. Cube(http://www.cubeengine.com/) is a good game that a friend showed me. It's open source, fps, online and networking capabilities. It's not the greatest graphics in the world, but it's good for a game that's completely free. The maker has also come out with the "next-gen version of cube", named Sauerbraten. It's basically Cube 2, but with better graphics. Alot better. It's still "experimental" but it looks nice. Wow, kindof got off on a rant there Anyway, I think this kind of thread would be benificial. Thanks!
What linux games would you recommend to someone who's never tried linux gaming?

Just curious, what are some games that run wonderfully under WINE and are free, or are free and made for linux, that are high enough quality for you to recommend them to someone coming from Windows?
MiniHOWTO: Run native Linux games from X without KDE (Gnome).
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 25, 2006
KDE eats appreciable amount of resources and games may be laggy even on fast machines. I run my favorite UT 2003 from within it's own X session and it looks better and runs smoother. Here is how.
Warning: Disadvantages of this method is that we need to disable kdm (gdm) at startup. And to shut down KDE (Gnome) when gaming... Good thing is that you get a real performance boost.
Open a terminal emulator and do (Gnome users replace nano with gedit):
sudo cp /etc/X11/default-display-manager /etc/X11/default-display-manager.orig
sudo nano /etc/X11/default-display-manager
This file contains only one line:
/usr/bin/kdm (or /usr/bin/gdm in case of Gnome)
Delete this line and save a file.
Find out what is your game's executable and remember it's full path. In my case it's /usr/local/games/ut2003/ut2003, yours may be different.
Now close KDE (Gnome) and reboot (reboot needed just once for the changes to take effect). When the system boots up you will stay in tex

lg-live is a live Linux DVD pre-installed with some of the top linux games out there. You just boot from your dvd, select your game and start playing. As simple as that. The liveDVD itself is based on ArchLinux and comes pre-loaded with 13 popular Linux games, and more are planned for future release.
LXer: One live DVD, one ton of Linux games
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 2, 2008
Published at LXer:
LinuX-Gamers Live is a live DVD from Germany based on Arch Linux that includes nothing but games. Version 0.9.3 was released in June and provides an excellent means of sampling Linux games or setting up a home arcade, although a few of the games wouldn't run on my machine. There are no productivity tools, Web browsers, or package managers here; this disc is all play and no work. Because it's a live DVD, no hard drive is required to run the games. Once you burn the downloaded image to a DVD, you have a portable arcade that will run on any x86 system with 512MB or more of RAM. A 3-D accelerated video card is also required for most of the games. Proprietary drivers for Nvidia and ATI-based video cards are included, so you can enable acceleration for those types of cards by simply answering a few dialogs during the boot process.
