List of Great Linux Games:
In my opinion, a modification is a game.
* Savage: The Battle for Newerth (2003) -> Savage XR
* Savage 2: A Tortured Soul (2008)
* Heroes of Newerth (closed beta testing) (2009) - similar to DOTA
By s2 Games
* Quake 4
- Quake 4: HardQore
* Doom 3
* UT2004 - many mods
* Serious Sam 2
* Postal 2
* Urban Terror
* UFO Alien Invasion
* Jagged Alliance 2
* Oolite - a elite clone and more
* Vendetta Online - 3D space combat MMORPG
* X3: Reunion
* Lemmingballz - fun fighting game
* OpenLieroX - a collection of liero games
* Teeworlds - quake-style soldat/liero/worms
* Pingus - lemmings clone (many players just done the tutorial...)
* Fish Fillets NG - puzzle game
* GCompris - a collection of educational games
* Dominions 3 The Awakening - hardcore turn-based strategy game
* Crack Attack!
* Scorched 3D
* Dungeon Crawl Reference
* Globulation 2 - macrofocus RTS
* Neverwinter Nights
* Eschalon: Book
* World of Goo
# Penumbra: Black Plague
# Penumbra: Overture
# Penumbra: Requiem
By Frictional Games
* Spring Engine Based Games
Potential to be great:
Numpty Physics - replacement of
Egoboo - unstable
Soulfu - lack of Linux support
Xreal - graphic success in open source world
Spring 1944 - historical game need tweaking and balancing
0 A.D. - a AOE 2 like game in pre-alpha stage
Vega Strike - space simulator with very slow pace development
Q3 Rally - a modification of Quake 3/OpenArena
Liquid War 6 - beta stage
Star Wars: Imperial Winter - Spring-powered RTS
Once great projects now fading:
Very Good Games:
Alien Arena **** - use *current year* replace "****"
Spring Engine - Gundam RTS, Expand_and_Exterminate
World of Padman
Secret Maryo Chronicles
Free Space 2
X2: the threat
Free Space 2 engine - The Babylon Project

Also if you can get it to run, Alpha Centauri from Loki is great.
u kno your in a sorry state of affairs when you can list all of the decent games for your platform.
Labeling Descent 3 a turn based strategy game... geez... where the hell did you get THAT crap from?
Ah, that is a tiny problem compared to completely leaving out Battle for Wesnoth.

* Ankh 2

* Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness (Episode 1 and 2)
Didn't know Ankh is on Linux too.
yea. Runs kind of balls tho. Shadows are garbage. Certainly doesn't display what ogre can do.
I'm not an usual MMORPG player, but recently I'm enjoying Regnum Online very much on Linux. Sure, it has its nags and niches, but the overall experience I get is very rich, especially when you get to the higher levels. The game is always under constant improvements and bug fixing and will only get better.
