I thought I’d be nice to make a little list of some of the GNU/Linux games I’ve tried out this past year. I’ve tried to keep the list heterogeneous (different game genres, all from different producers, some freshly released and some quite older…).

I’ve also decided to only include commercial games in this post; if it gets positive feedback I may also post a list of my favourite free games.

Anyway, here it goes:
