Quake 4

Take one part Quake 4, mix in one part iD’s official Linux binaries, one part Quake 4 Linux FAQ and one part patience. Mix them all together and you have one of the best games for Linux ever!

It took a bit of work, partially because of problems with the libsdl installed on Debian-based systems (including Ubuntu) and partially because I didn’t realize that the Linux installer doesn’t install all of the needed files from CD 1. But after I got it up and running, I was simply amazed. This game rocks, and it rocks hard in Linux. I don’t have the fastest system (Athlon 2500+, 1gb ram, nVidia 6600), and was worried about game performance. Which was silly of me. The game is solid at 1024x768x32-bit color. And it looks gorgeous!

This is truly friggin’ awesome!
