Free/Open-source First-person Shooter Games

Filed under

A first-person shooter (Commonly called FPS) is an action video game that involves "an avatar, one or more ranged weapons, and a varying number of enemies". FPSs render the game world from the visual perspective of the player character. FPS was one of the first genres to use key technologies such as 3D graphics, online play, and modding. Enhanced realism combined with graphic violence has also made FPS a common topic in ongoing controversies over video games.

I have collected some quality free/open-source first-person shooter games. Just a little warning to parents though; most of these games are indeed violent. You better let your little kids sleep first before splurging with these games. So without any more delay, here's the list already:

*AssaultCube, formerly ActionCube sets in a realistic looking environment, as far as that´s possible with this engine, while gameplay stays fast and arcade. This game is all about team oriented multiplayer fun. Although, a single player mode exists which consists of computer-controlled bots. It also includes Cube's map maker which allows for in-game editing.

Assault Cube

Assault Cube is nice and all for a FOSS game, but it's really not much fun at all after you've played Counter Strike.

The Best Linux Setup For Older Computers

A number of the distributions on that list would have been suitable but I was also looking for a distribution that had a 32-bit version. From the list I could reasonably have gone for PCLinuxOS, Linux Mint XFCE, Zorin OS Lite or Linux Lite but having recently reviewed Q4OS I decided that this was the best option because it looks a lot like older versions of Windows, it is lightweight, fast and easy to use.
