Er...what criteria should we use to determine if a game gets listed here? I'm on the verge of going through Portage and seriously buffing out our repertoire...

this section seems to be a bit clustered, would anyone object if i moved all the games listed into a separate page, and use this one for gaming info? -- SciYro

This is a top level page, directly linked to from the main page. I think it should be a list of gaming topics, and a list of games should be made elsewhere. So basically, yes, SciYro. Crazyeddie 04:11, Jan 22, 2005 (EST)

+1 from me. Jeremy 14:44, Jan 22, 2005 (EST)

ok, the new Game List page has all the linux games from this page (that still exist for linux, and had pages already made on this wiki), ill delete the games list from this page soon, but there is still a lot of clutter from all the various links to console, and stray words on this page ..... so before i go deleting i would like to hear suggestions for a new non-cluttered format to re-write this page with (as the current state is pretty much all links, no info, and all in a almost random order) -- SciYro

I'm still not sure which list I prefer. I think the Game List is a bit hard to read because of the 'multi-line' short descriptions some games have, but I can live with that. My suggestion for this page would be:
  • some general info about gaming in linux? (I really have no idea what that would be :))
  • Link to game List, which should list native games and link to a 'games through emulation' list?
  • Link to some game development page, which links to things like SDL.
  • Link to OpenGL and maybe some X page for configuring the system for optimum performence --Jor 12:17, Mar 18, 2005 (EST)
