Gaming

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!
