Computer games are one of the cornerstones of the modern PC. The way we use our machines today goes back to the early 80s, when first "serious" PC games started showing up on the market. They defined the cutting edge of technology - and still do. One of the main reasons, if not the only reason, why most of us upgrade computers every few years are - yup - computer games. And make no mistake, the average gamer is 38 years old. 15 years ago, the same gamer was 38 minus 15 years old. We were kids then - and we still are.

In this section, you will find lots of useful information about computer games.

Major categories

Teaser 1

This section deals with old and very old games, most of them dating back to the golden years of DOS. In this section, you will find practical and proven tips how to successfully setup and play the old games on modern operating systems, including Windows XP and various flavors of Linux. Some of the topics covered include: emulation, virtualization, multiplayer over IPX and Serial, and more. For any DOS fan, this section is a MUST. Because of its size and importance, this section is located on a separate page.

This sub-section is all about some of the best computer games ever made, timeless, legendary titles that defined the era in which they were made. Entirely subjective, of course. I play these games quite frequently, even though some have been released as many as 20 years ago. This is my humble tribute. Enjoy.

This sub-section is all about games for Linux. Although most of these games will run on just about any operating system, all of them have been developed to run natively on Linux. Most of them are open-source. Most of them can be found in Linux repositories and are very easy to install and configure. And they are all free. The majority of articles are collections presenting several game titles at once, from two up to 10+, complete with overall impression, graphics grades, and usually grouped by category. Certain games may show more than once or even as individual articles as new versions are released, since most of these titles are in continuous development.

Teaser 3

Increasing the awareness to Linux games is important. Currently, the Linux gaming is underestimated, underfunded and little known of. This makes Windows users hesitant to try Linux, because they fear losing the ability to play games. And even many Linux users are little aware of the wide range of fun titles that will run on their favorite operating system. My goal is to educate people on Linux gaming, bridge the gap between the Windows and Linux community and help developers produce more titles, and of better quality, for Linux.

Together, we can make Linux gaming a great, fun experience!
