Games


Urban Terror  --- This is a first person shooter (FPS). Best free one I've seen.

Open Arena  --- A FPS game, similar to Quake 3, this one is actually GPLed.

Smokin Guns --- A FPS game set in the wild west of the 1800s.

Linux Game Database  --- I haven't actually used this much, but it looks good.

The games listed above require no installation, just unzip and play. They are quite large, in the 500MB to 700MB range. They all use the GPLed Quake 3 engine so they can run on modest hardware.

ATI and Intel hardware acceleration is supported by Fatdog64 with the included open source drivers, but you'll get better performance from the propritary ATI driver if it supports your card. Make sure you check to see if the version in the pet repository supports your card before installing. For Nvidia you'll need the Nvidia pet package installed.

There are a few games in the pet repository too.
