Four Linux Games I Can't Stop Playing - page 5
The Battle for Wesnoth
It's not really a game per se, but I'm excited about the new GGZ Gaming Zone (GGZ), a free software competitor of the MSN Gaming Zone that Windows users have free access to. GGZ includes many card, board, and arcade games that you can play online against other people, or by yourself against the computer. Unfortunately, the service is unknown to most desktop GNU/Linux users; every time I log onto the service, there are few or no people logged in.
Nexuiz is a free software clone of Quake 3. It's improved dramatically since I last reviewed it, but my hands are too used to the feel of the controls in UT2004, so I have trouble adjusting. While we're talking about first-person shooters, Doom 3 is worth mentioning. A lot of people like the Doom series; personally, I do not like games that try to induce heart attacks in their players.
Lastly, for all of the fantasy massively-multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) fanatics, there is PlaneShift. It looks like an awesome game, but I only recently installed it and haven't had the chance to get involved with it yet. So far though, it looks like it'll find its way into my gaming time.
