One game that should be coming out fairly soon for Linux is X3 from what it says on its page. This game looks like it will definitely be worth buying. Has anyone played this game (on Windows) or the older X2? I've only played the X2 demo and it had very good graphics.
I have played X3 on windows and am looking forward to it coming out on Linux. The graphics are superb. I found personally that the game took longer than most for me to get into it. But that was mostly because I started out at normal difficulty instead of the quickstart. The quickstart option gives you much more cash on hand to get started with. However, once you figure out some decent trade runs, purchase (or capture) a few ships, and start building your own stations the game takes on a whole new level.

The truth is that sometimes you need to spend sometime outfitting new equipment or buying a new ship to complete the mission objectives.
For some short-commitment fun, try Armagetronad, Globulation 2 or anything from Kenta Cho (some ports are available on http://www.emhsoft.com/)
Yes and No
Eye candy is good but with great game play its awesome. You mentioned having an issue with HL2?? I played the entire single player and also the DM multi and NEVER had an issue. NOT ONE PROBLEM. Maybe you need a newer system or need some update? I dont know but Crysis is just a teeny weeny bit more than just eye candy. I have actually Played the Alpha build at a Computer event and It is awesome!!! That is why I spent quite a bit on getting the parts to build a very current pc. I wish it were in Linux, as this is one of the most anticipated games and would BE A HUUUUUUUGGGGGGEEEE PLUS if it were in Linux... Geez
Warhammer Online would be a huge plus for Linux. But they said they have no Linux experience there wouldn't be a Linux client in the near future after release.
SuperTuxKart makes progess
SuperTux 0.3 is not too old and I love it
Xmoto is addicting
Neverball, I like it more and more
Nexuiz, the best free shooter in my opinion
ET: QW is worth the wait
Bf Wesnoth is great, but I never was good at such games
I don't really play a lot of different games.
Personally I don't like any of the native linux games that are available. If there would be one I'd buy it immediately.
I usually only play multiplayer games.
The only game I play a lot (if possible daily) is Natural Selection, a HL1 mod.
Fear (combat) was quiet fun too.
Hope there will ever be a port of the Source engine to Linux...
STEAM/Source Engine port would be so awesome. I need to play KZMod, a modification for HL2. And CoD4, Crysis, HL2EP2, Stalker: Clear Sky are coming, too :(
Part of the gameplay equation is graphics. If the guy you are shooting looks like lego man I would think it would affect gameplay a little. Anyway I would love to see Crysis in Linux, I am currently playing the beta and it looks promising. Oh and I pay a lot for the hardware I have to have the best gaming experience possible so I dont really want to play old games. Nothing against them, just think games like Crysis and Hellgate London have a lot of potential. ;)
