Linux has never really received the recognition of a gaming system the way that other operating systems especially Windows have acquired. Windows have been fortunate enough to be the platform for some of the top games that are available online such as Diablo III and World of Warcraft. It could be possible to have the potential of playing these games on the Linux OS if you were to implement a Wine, but some of these games have been blocked. While certain games are not available for the Linux operating system it does not mean that there are not some great games that are available. There are also games that shine through and are actually better to play on a Linux OS than on Windows 7.
This is a collective list, in no specific order, of games that are optimized on the Linux OS:
Left 4 Dead 2- This highly anticipated sequel helps to show off the 3D graphics more efficiently in the Linux OS due to it streamlining capabilities. Linux does not contain a lot of the additional, and sometimes unnecessary, bells and whistles of the Windows 7 OS. That has made it better to streamline certain hardcore graphics like the 3D graphics that are used in this sequel.
Amnesia- Amnesia has released its latest installment, a machine for pigs. It is a much anticipated sequel that was originally created with the Linux OS system in mind. This means that the game was built to optimize the capabilities of the Linux OS, and was not built to many of the restrictions of Windows 7.
0 A.D.- Many people consider this game to need a lot more work, but they also regard it as an extremely visually pleasing game. The dedication and the realism that drips from this game is unmatched by any other, and it is optimized by the Linux OS.
FlightGear- FlightGear is less of a game and more of a simulator. This simulator was built to do just that simulator the equipment and the scenery that you would see while cruising through the skies. It is a great way to show off the quality graphics that the Linux OS is capable of as well as entertain you for quite some time.
Savage 2- This is a great game that gives you a variety of options for game play. You can choose to be in the middle of the action playing the hero, or you can choose to be in command calling the shots. Either way it is quite a visually impressive game that is best played on the Linux OS.
Trine 2- The games for the Linux tend to be rather popular to the point that a great deal of them requires multiple installments. The latest version is just a better option to the first installment. The developers stopped at nothing to make sure that almost every aspect of this game was made bigger, better, and more challenging. While it is offered in other platforms it is represented the best on the Linux OS.
Windows has always been known as the go to OS for gamers, but with major developers such as Blizzard voicing their fears over the development of Windows 8 there may be quite a lot of action to come in the video game development section for Linux. The gaming section is huge for an OS, and there is a lot to be taken into consideration during development. The fact that Windows has made the game developers take a backseat, and waited to let them get their sneak preview of the new system may very well end up being their downfall. The time may have come for Linux to finally upstage Windows in the gaming section of their OS.
