Phoronix: Unigine Engine Now Supports OpenGL 3.2
The Unigine Engine is arguably the best gaming engine that supports Linux with its very impressive graphics and growing set of features, albeit there's a lack of games that actually use this engine on Linux besides a few tech demos (found in the Phoronix Test Suite).

Sounds cool. Linux needs one killer game to get people to see it as a serious gamer platform.
Quakes, ETs are there and so is Doom 3.

ETQW lacks some setting on Linux.
So there is a need for most modern games compatibility with Linux.
One of the most important things is the ability to install the game easily.
Most people will not bother to read manuals and moreover forums just to install the game.
And it's not that easy with different distros utilizing different system layout, package systems, sound options etc ...
Gentoo is the best to handle this. All mentioned games are in portage tree and very easy to install.
But Gentoo is not for newbies. Game publishers should release or at least help distributions like Ubuntu Suse and RedHat to build their packages.
The installer that HoN uses is probably the best way without having to worry about package management. It's just a bash script that uses a simple X gui.
