Of the open source & native linux games, three of my favorites that are really fun to play with others (locally): liquidwar, a strategic yet envigorating conquest of pixels; jumpnbump, gory mayhem with bunnies; and armagetron. which is like glTron. For single-player games, used to play tuxracer quite a bit, sliding Tux on his belly down the (3D) slopes. Seems it's now branched into extremetuxracer and planetpenguin-racer. Also enjoyed Pingus, a Lemmings-type of game (2D).
I didn't expect this post to be so boring, but it appears that most games I play are closed source & non-free (both native and emulated) - shame on me! The OP seems to be asking about packages in a major linux repository (Ubuntu's?), which means at the very least free, and preferably open-source - so I'll refrain from garbling up the thread with a list of unwanted games. If I'm mistaken, I'll gladly post the rest of the games I play on Linux - but until then, this post remains a bit of a snooze.
Occasionally I take a look at The Linux Game Tome to see if something new has come along. Just wanted to put it out there, hope it's new to some of you!edit on 28-4-2011 by scraze because: should learn to count
