Top 10 Game Download Websites For Linux

Why are you not using LINUX?

Because :

1.There are no 3D games for Linux.

2.Used by Geeks only.

3.For any thing, must executed by command line.

So, friends it’s time to change your perspective about Linux. Now just double click, you can do any thing in Linux. As for myself, I am also Linux fan but love “double click” not “command line”. In the next few lines I want to show you the side that many of us do not know. Linux has both criteria  of games, high end and well, not so high end.  This is not a joke, most  games size between a few MB’s upto about 8 GB. The following websites will tell you more about the LINUX based games:

1. Live.linux-gamers.net

In this Website you can download ISO files of the games. This creates Live CDs/DVDs or you can Mount the games onto a virtual drive, and play those games.

    linux is not great but it islike the best free os ever

    • Donovan Ryan Hay says:

      Of course its not great, why would anyone want full control, no viruses, security and so forth, I mean come on…. lol. Linux might not be for everyone, yet, but compared to windows its allot better in many ways.

      Sure you cant play all the commercial games on it, but you can play most of them. Just because something is free and I know now days that is amazing, doesn’t necessarily mean that its not up to scratch.

      I cant argue the fact that its a gaming platform, because to a large extent its not. But gaming is just, well, not even one percent of the primary function of an OS.

      It comes down to what you use it for. I have been working, gaming, and messing around on all the major platforms for almost 8 years and still choose Linux over the rest. People need to stop judging it as the “Best free OS ever” and start giving it a chance. Just remember, you do get commercial flavors of it as well.

  4. Nice Blurb! I am going to spread the word so you get lots more readers! Video Game Players will control the world!

  5. Each article I have read is very well written and to the point. I would also like to state, not only are the articles well written, but the design of your web-site is excellent. I was able to navigate from article to article and locate what I was looking for with ease. Keep up the excellent work you are doing, and I will be back many times in the near future.

  6. Felton Sult says:

    I have glanced at most of your blog entries and I had been curious about if you were interesting in swapping web site links? I am often looking to swap links with blogs about similar subjects! I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

  7. Sidney Rebel says:

    I don’t use Linux because it sucks.

    I do manual labor, but I’m interested in computers. I’ve done a good bit of Linux and Windows both. And let me tell you: I do not want to sit behind my computer all day figuring out which version of gcc I need to use to compile some game or program. It’s all fun & games installing the pre-compiled stuff, but if you want something specific, you need a goddamn engineers degree to understand this rubbish. And “You should stick to the pre-compiled versions if you don’t like it. People put hard work in to those you know.” is not a good reply. If I should stick to the pre-compiled versions, that’s the same thing as using windows. With the one difference that I am not too lazy to click an install button. I like seeing what I install instead of giving the commandline an “apt-get update && apt-get upgrade” and then seeing a bunch of text rush by.

    I can get similar and more experience on windows, where every install is just the click of a button.

    For the life of me, I do not understand why people have so much issues with Windows Update. Linux repositories update way more often.

    Who cares about a damn restart. I start the updates, get me a cup of coffee and by the time that’s done all updates are installed and I’m good to go.

    A little while ago, my son helped me set up some folders so I could organize family pictures and such that my brother likes taking. He used Hard Links to get em on a small FTP server from which the entire family can reach it. I asked him “I saw this in a couple of linux tutorials I found a few years ago, I didn’t know that was possible in Windows”. To which he said the apt words: “Almost everything you can do in Linux, you can do in Windows. People are just too prejudiced to find out that something is conflicting with their held beliefs”.

    So, as far as I’m concerned, you’re a bunch of whining hacks. As long as you’re not building a Server or a supercomputer.

    • Al Urker says:

      As you don’t seem to be well in tune with the technical aspect of a computer, I’ll try to explain this nice and simple. :P

      First off, linux is definately not for everyone, particularly those that really just don’t give two halfs of a shit how their computer works. What you see as an incredibly complicated mess is actually far more coherent and sane that anything that you see in windows. All that text is actually telling you something important, and what the computer is doing, instead of just displaying a little blue progress bar, then failing with the error 0x920485 and having no clue what went wrong or where to start on fixing it. And all the system configuration files are in plain text, which are editable with a regular text editor.

      Second, you’ve obviously never used a hybrid package managment system such as pacman in arch linux. Sure, you can get the occasional system updates with the click of a button in windows, but if you want to update anything else to the latest version, you have to manually check for and install updates, which can be a real pain in the ass, while with pacman all your software and system is up-to-date with a simple pacman -Syu in the terminal. Installing software is also just as simple, a pacman -Sy and you can find the latest stable (Or otherwise if you have the testing repo enabled) version of whatever piece of software you want, with a dependancy and conflict check, all with one command.

      And then the system is just infinitely simpler as far as organization. C:/windows is an absolute clusterfuck. While in linux, all the data is placed in very predictable directories, where you can actually find something you need. Not to mention that because of this, my system is incredibly fast. Open up the system monitor on your computer. Take a look at exactly how much ram and cpu you’re using to just to browse the internet. I have $20 that it’s eating at least half your ram, most of it running on absolutely pointless tasks. Meanwhile, my computer boots up to a graphical interface in 15 seconds flat, (Really slow I know, some can get it down to milliseconds,) and can browse, listen to music, and have a perfectly function desktop environment with less than 400 MB of ram at all times. This, of course, free up room for cool things, like games on a laptop that couldn’t play anything on windows. :)

      Linux is used by ‘geeks’ because it, by nature, allows you to customize your system to the bone. If you don’t have a clue what you’re doing or how is system should work, and really don’t care, and just want it to work, linux is not for you. The lack of comprehension and reasoning ability in your post alone lets everyone know that you don’t know enough about computers to have a worthwhile opinion on what exactly sucks when it comes to computers. You want to talk about whining hacks, you’d be lost without a gui and automated configuration.

      But like I said, it’s not for everyone, and you don’t seem to be in tune with the details of a computer enough to appreciate linux. You’re probably better with windows. (After all, it was meant for people like you.)

    I have used Ubuntu, and Mint and a few other distos.
    I still have a computer that uses Mint flavored Linux. I like it. I have gone through the trauma of having every metaphor and idiom totally messed over, the inability of any OS to reliably deal with my Hp Deskjet D2680 printer (including some windows flavors), I have found updates and new stuff that required a reinstall of the system as the system became unstable.
    I think I can appreciate the qualities of Linux. And of Windows. \
    My latest and fastest machine came with Win XP. Yeah, on a dual core 64 bit machine. I kept it, partially in hope that it would allow printing (so far, no).
    Some of my experience with Linux has allowed me to be less religious about interface metaphor, desktop displays, etc. The Mint whatever the number was that did not allow much on the desktop was a shock and so I have heard is Win 8. But beyond that, I have gotten used to much.

    My feeling is that there is not a ‘Ready for prime time’ OS on the personal PC market. None. They are all flawed, sometimes badly. The Linux folks that say that it is stable do not have my experience of updating, upgrading, and reinstalling the OS flavors. And I feel that I have to speak against Linux here, that most people here have some idea why Windows is not ready to work as well as it should. Viruses? Yeah. And price and my cruddy printer (which must be an exception for most OS).
    I want restore points in Linux. Most reinstalls kill the whole thing. I want to be able to go back to a point just before the OS stopped taking updates because something is wrong.
    I want wine to load multidisk games. I want wine to load multidisk games when the games have been collected on a larger disk. I want wine to work, and not have to pay money to play old games,
    nr pay money to access even my crud printer.
    As I said, Linux, and all others, are not ready for Prime time.
