Games on Linux!

A huge population of students and friends always seem to be relaxing with their computers once in a while.. I relax with a heavy dose of C/C++ or PHP ... :D


However, I was referring to the general 'normal' population that aims to play games and chill out. Even experienced and seasoned experts 'know', Games and Linux do not mix. So what do I do? I blog!



Here's a list of many games, I have enjoyed (or tested out rather :P) on my customized Rage-Nix OS... and a variety of other OS-es too... including Ubuntu 10.04, Mandriva 2009, Slackware 12, Mint 5, etc. Many require updated GLibC, and will not work on old ones (GLIBC > 2.1)... By old I am referring to pre 2009 era... :)


NOTE: These are all NATIVE games... not emulated by WINE or any other emulator... :)
