Thumbs up Excelent Article!

Cool article! Thanks!

I already knew some of the games (I'm a big ET fan) but most of them are now on my "to try" list. I'm looking fwd for the 30 games list!

Thanks also to everybody that posted other game suggestions! I'll look at them too.

Thanks for the comments! I am looking forward to writing the next installment, and really should soon. CES added a lot more to my plate, so we'll see what happens.

ET is a definitely favorite for many, although I could never get into it. Not personally into that genre, although I never really gave it that much time either. Will have to in the near future.

Default Single-player FPS

Anybody know of a good single-player FPS? It seems like all the good ones mentioned in this article and others I've read are networked, deathmatch-style games, which I'm not interested in.

Thanks!

Default Good Article

I have to say thanks for the article. I just installed Linux recently, and it has been a long time since I've used Linux. I wanted to find some good free games, and this list provides me games to try out. As for playing some games for windows(yea i know this is about free linux games), you can always try wine to play them.

Default Should've added BZFlag

I am kinda sad that BZFlag didn't make it on the list. It really is one of the better games. The main objective is to enter a room, and shoot all of the other tanks as many times as you can. You can find it here.

http://bzflag.org/

And the best part is, they have binaries for all sources!

Because of the huge demand for a follow-up, there will be one within a month. To create a new (and larger list), I will be referencing this thread and many others where the topic has been discussed, and build a list with all the games that people were upset didn't make the list. Stay tuned...

Default NetPanzer of course

I can't believe there is no mention of the best online game of all: NetPanzer. Have a try and you will love it. And, by the way good luck during the game...

Default Thanks

This list and the Civilization suggestion have given me much to do on the trains and buses now that I have moved my work laptop off of Windows. (well, I work in support, so there is still a Windows partition on there in case I need to see what I am telling someone to do)

PS you have the most difficult image verification ever. 2 failed attempts thus far.

The reason it's semi-difficult is because it eludes spammers greatly. We do not have a problem with spammers like other forums do. I'll change back to use the ImageMagick library instead of GD and see if it effects the spammers. It should be easier to read.

Let me know if you try again and have additional problems.

Exclamation Laurie

Are there any free online games available? I don't want to register (give out my e-mail address) or download something. I just want to play something interesting on line!

Default Extra Pingus Levels.

Pingus is nice but it is small. I found the great new packages of organized levels in .deb packages you can download at: http://dotdeb.com/aboutgame.php?pinguslevelsets
