Not really that much of a gamer these days, just not my bag. Despite this, I have been known to get into a game of Frets On Fire when the mood strikes. But what about discovering other open source games that work well on the Linux platform that I have yet to discover?
In instances such as that above, I might be inclined to look at working with an Ubuntu repository simply called PlayDeb. Utilizing the goodies that Ubuntu already provides, PlayDeb gives the end user an easy means of installing a ready to roll gaming repository for your Ubuntu installation.
The games provided are all open source and Linux native. This means there is none of that WINE nonsense or other hassles when trying to get a game going that you are interested in. Just select a game that you would like to install. It’s really pretty simple.
