Linux and gaming

Just was wondering....

What would you like to know about playing games on linux? What problems do you run into?
Got any ideas on playing windows games using wine OR *cedega?

Best alternatives for demon-tools?

Any thoughts? Let me know!

I only play SFE: Savage Full Enhancement when I have time. Search bugzilla for ebuild. Linux version has some issues with sound on my system though (crackling), so I run the windows one under wine :).

TC:E mod for Enemy Territory. Still the funnest game/mod I've played, and free-aim feature is the best.

I haven't really looked into it that much myself, so I'm not sure how useful it is in practice (especially as it's getting close to two years old) - but I can across this thread in a nother forum that I frequent and I thought I would submit it here in case if has something to offer :).

I love NWN (NeverWinter Nights). I play it natively! no wine/cedega/crossover . Its fast, nice, uses SDL and I can't wait to beat it so I can go on to NWN2 !! I love gaming in Linux!! I think I'm really really gonna like this shed!
