I'm sad that Darwinia does not get a nod here. It's a mighty fine game, you know?
Adding to the list, Mupen64 Plus and Mame. Ironically, playing the same game.
I will say is that, what Linux as a platform has in abundance is shooters. Almost every shooter in Linux is a derivative of Quake 3. lol.

I mostly play X-Moto now. It's a 2D motor stunting game. The reason I play it so often is because a level only takes about a minute, so you can always start the game, hit Quick Play and do a few stunts if you're bored. And it's actually very challenging.
The more serious games I play are:
Descent 2 (d2x)
Return to Casdtle Wolfenstein
Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
Battlestar Galactica: Beyond the Red Line (might become free when released, but the demo isn't)
And in Wine: Half-Life series, Hitman series, C&C3, GTA2, Dungeon Keeper 2, and Scorcher.
I wonder if this thread is really about:
Native Linux games vs Wine games tally.
I'm certainly getting a gut feel that's how this article will focus on.
what games matter most
Steam (except i haven't gotten it to work yet)
Heroes of might and magic III complete
It's a very good game but without multiplayer support it lacks at bit... (can't wait for multiwinia though!)

TA Spring (I have trouble managing this properly, I wish there were a better linux front end for setting up games, managing mods and maps.)
Am waiting for Danger from the deep, it seems pretty cool.
I give BSG:BTRL and Vega Strike a shot on occasion. Used to be they taxed my graphics to much and weren't that playable, but I have a newer card now.
Lastly, that 3-D tanks game with the different weapons is pretty fun.
Savage 2 (what's up with the character limit?)
WOW! Smells like Crossfire spirit...
I read all the posts and I am really very happy with the response of all of you folks! Learned new game titles too
Most of the games I 'd like to mention are already here(Nexuiz etc..) except 2...
-Sauerbraten (Only one friend told about it which is really unfair for this very well built modern 3D open source game)
For the commercial ones now I really don't think we should mention them here their companies can tell AMD to include their titles at Crossfire support.
I use wine a lot but not for games.

I haven't used Wine, or any of it's derivatives, for gaming. I play the Linux ports of UT2004, Doom 3 and Quake 4, and I'll probably buy ET:QW too. I also play a variety of open source games.
