I recently completed Wasteland 2, took me nearly 100hrs to finish.  Very good game, I plan to do a 2nd playthrough at a later date.

Polaris Sector
- traveling though space (one generated galaxy) like in Mass Effect
- ally or make war against 1-7 other races
- colonizing planets for resources
- nice research system and customizable ships

It can take up a lot of time  ::)

Games in the repo?

Dwarf Fortress.   ;D

Be warned the learning curve is pretty steep (although there is a good wiki) and the user interface is about as bad as the game is good.  >:D

Sink of time recently, adapting to linux and trying to get (a heavily modded version of) Skyrim set up.  Almost there, I think...

Paradox games - thousands of hours of fun.
Stellaris will be released tomorrow, Hearts of Iron on D-Day. Even more fun!

I don't have any games from the official repos installed.

CS:GO
GTA V
The Witcher 3
Firewatch
Cities Skylines
Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag

All on Win10 though. Thinking of replaying Far Cry 3&4, original Deus Ex (with mods) and getting the new Hitman and remastered Grim Fandango.

Haven't gamed for years, but a friend of mine recently talked about Factorio so I thought I'd google it and it turned out to have both a linux version and a free demo mode and now I'm hooked.
