This thread is intendet for posting YOUR personal recommendation(s) of great games for OpenSuse.
I’m absolutely no gamer personality, but when it comes to Adventures like Monkey Island, DOTT, Myst or similar and it’s snowing outside… go figure.
Anyhow, please go ahaed and post ONLY the games you think have the most thrilling adrenalin-kicks and the coolest effects in this thread. Let’s start with a racecar crash game!
… and start downloading to your heart’s content. All of the old standards are here – from Duke Nukem to Commander Keen to Clyde’s Adventure and Revenge (personal favorites of mine) to Wolfenstein to you name it.
The only problem is, you may never get any work done again.
I gave up looking for those years ago, and that’s the very reason I installed DOSBox. There are a few advanced games for Linux, but the selection is very limited. Also, one thing that I’ve noticed in general about the F/OSS gaming community – apparently they really DO live in dark basements and think dark thoughts, because many of the games are just too blamed dark for my old eyes. Dim, washed out colors on a black background are hard for me to make out. The lack of meaningful help files is another killer.
(My favorite goes, “if you’ve ever played TiddlyPiddly, this game is just like it!!!” Ok … what about those of us who’ve never even HEARD of TiddlyPiddly, much less played it???)
Besides, to be honest, I prefer the old side-scrollers. I like Wolf3D, but by the time Duke Nukem 3D came out, I lost interest. Having to juggle weapons on the fly while Bad Guys are shooting at you is too much for me to keep up with.
Finally, as far as I’m concerned, software is software. I don’t care whether I’m running a “native” Linux application or a DOS game in a virtual box, as long as it’s playable. It truly doesn’t matter to me. The final result and appearance is all that matters, as far as I’m concerned.

UT2004 (need to get the blue box to get Linux support)
World of Goo kongregate.com and a good flash implementation (1000+ games I think)
TuxRacer (not the open source one, but the closed source one… rare, but well worth it)
Descent 3 for Linux
Ok… maybe not all are the “flashiest”… I think Descent 3 has some cool effects.
I play UT2004 the most, CTF… preferably Citadel with vampire and low gravity enabled.
Here i play Nexuiz and now Quake Live (via browser lol!). Used to play UT99 (native). And like also Hedgewars, a Worms Clone, xmoto.
Times to times i go to windowz to play GTR2, since in linux it runs but without ForceFeedback :sarcastic:
. Its a regular ol’ MMO so it has a monthly cost to play. But I reccon there are 21 day trials through steam, unless they discontinued that. Its far from everyones liking but if you find yourself liking it, you will prolly be stuck for years
I’m mostly a MMO kinda guy but Portal looks AWESOME. I must get that orange looking box.
I would like to recommend these (some were mentioned): World of Goo, Penumbra Collection, The Orange Box (via Steam in wine) + Counter-Strike Source, Heroes of Newerth as well as Savage2 (both from superb studio S2Games, native GNU/Linux clients), Hedgewars, Frets on Fire, PokerTH, OpenTTD, Gothic 2 Gold (with NotR addon | wine emulated) and some more.
