Why would I want to play a game that gets only 10 FPS?

Surprizingly happy Linux users have the opportunity of playing for the first time amazing games like:

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-yMJkA1jn3e...ubuntu1204.png

"Super Meat Boy: A highly addictive platformer where you play as an animated cube of meat who's trying to save his girlfriend from evil Dr. Fetus. The game has more than 300 levels. Level of difficulty might be a tad too high for normal users. Price: US$14.99"


...in the meantime on Windows powered PC's...

Until then: Daniel takes a nap, dreams of playing crysis, wakes up and realises that unless he's giving up on linucs and installs windows his chance of playing crysis is like 1/1000000000000

Hey, I finally saw this thread!
Unfortunately all of those First Person Shooters are in the same category... run-n-kill deathmatch.
They don't offer a story-driven singleplayer campaign.
They are still fun and have some unique graphical styles, but if you played Quake3 Arena - been there! Done that!

I hope someone will take advantage of these free open source engines and create more singleplayer story-driven First Person Shooters with some multiplayer or cooperative elements.

They also forgot the original Enemy Territory! Totally free and in the same genre, but runs in Linux natively.

I've played online almost not at all. I much prefer single player FPS.

I never play online either. I get way too frustrated with "that kid" who plays 8 hours a day and wiped me out in a second.
I'd rather play a singleplayer campaign or against bots with my friends.
Cooperative games have really grown on me because we get to work together and follow a story.
Those are the BEST!

I really enjoy the improved AI in the newer games. You can actually become attached to some of them.":O}

I know...
You have got to play Far Cry 2!
The AI is amazing and your NCP friends are very likable and realistic!
There are times where you have to save their life or they come and save you.
Loved it!
