" Best is subjective. My best may not be your best. Still, I
wanted to share with you my perception of the best Linux games you
can have installed on your machine, in year 2010, Gregorian
Calendar. These games offer an unrivaled mix of storyline,
attention to detail and a balance between realism and plain ole
fun. These are more than just games you will play for a few minutes
and then toss away forever. These are games that you will keep
returning to, even if they sit abandoned on the digital shelf for a
a few months or even years. They are special.
"What makes them special?
"Well, for me, it's a combination of legacy, reminiscence and
nostalgia combined, plus damn good fun. Some of these games are
reincarnations of childhood titans, games that have kept me
plastered to the chair and playing, playing, playing until pixels
ran out. Then, all of a sudden, you get a mega-upgrade, however
unlike movie sequels that come a decade too late, these were a
tremendous success. The rest are just plain good games, as simple
as that. Fun, with a good mix of solid gameplay, system
requirements and graphics."
