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.
