Top 20 Linux Games: Boredom got PWNT!

Filed under
Gaming

If you’re a Linux user on a daily basis, certainly you’re not really a gamer. But there are some moments for everyone when we’re bored in front of the computer. And what better way to kill boredom but with games?

Unfortunately, Linux has has it’s fair share of problems with OpenGL, direct rendering, video drivers etcetera and still does so gaming in Linux hasn’t yet reached the level where it’s supposed to be, or at least the level of MS Windows. However, for the last couple of years, this little problem Linux is having with games has started to get a turn in the right direction and kept going on it for quite a while. Therefore today, there are a lot of games for Linux: playable games, entertaining games, awesome graphics games. So many games that I felt the need to make a top 20 of the most awesome/popular/playable games I could find. So further on, you get the names of 20 game titles for Linux, their install instructions and screenshots (even videos for some). Enjoy!

1. Battle for Wesnoth

The Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based strategy game with a fantasy theme.
Build up a great army, gradually turning raw recruits into hardened veterans. In later games, recall your toughest warriors and form a deadly host against whom none can stand! Choose units from a large pool of specialists, and hand-pick a force with the right strengths to fight well on different terrains against all manner of opposition.
