blobwars is the game that i enjoyed most. pretty oldschool, but i had many hours of fun and beat it three times in different difficulty levels ;)

The virtue of water appears in its benefiting all things,
and in its occupying, without striving,
the low place which all men dislike.

True Combat:Elite is very cool.
It's a mod of Enemy Territory so you'll need to have that installed as well.
here are some screenshots.

Openttd. Openttd uses Linux scripts to run the game, but also requires installing some data files from the original DOS game. I'd like to see more of this technique.

I have that game for Macintosh. I only bought it because the retailer was going out of business and it was cheap. (I'm a software junkie)

I don't really play games. Don't know why, but I never really got into the whole video game thing. I have a few games on my machine that were installed with Gnome. I usually uninstall them, but I kept them this time for some reason. Of those games, I play Mahjongg, Aislerot Solitaire, and Five or More.

I also have a couple of games that were installed with KDE. I uninstalled most of the KDE games, but I do like to play Konquest once in a while.

I guess I probably play Mahjongg the most, so it gets my nod for best Linux game.

Oh... Larry. One of the very few games I got totally hooked on way back when. I didn't have a PC at home back then so I stayed late after work to play Larry (3 I think it was) on my office PC. It took quite a few nights but I did solve it :)

there is no other purpose to a game but time wasting entertainment and one game wastes time at the same rate as another - so one is just as good as another
actually one game can waste much more time than another..

I can't decide between Mindrover and the various Freespaces. I'm loving them equally just now.

WoW - under Wine.

Ok, I know I'm not original, but on this very same machine it crashes approx every 20 mins under windows... havent had it crash yet as long as I stay away from the gfx menu under linux (known issue).

And PySol :D
Using rm -rvf * to remove old backups... lazy.
Realising you were in / as root ... priceless.

Urban Terror 4
It's similar to counter strike but better(imo). And it's free.
