I'm sort of a masochist when it comes to gaming:  it's got to be hardcore and capable of punishing me for any mistake made. So here's my list:
1) Deus ex  (http://www.gog.com/game/deus_ex with smoke's mod(even on easy is hardcore  ;) )http://www.moddb.com/mods/smokes-mod/downloads/smoke39v02a) try the stealth/brute force/non-lethal/low tech approaches either one gets to make yr day
2)Praetorians (http://www.gog.com/game/praetorians with imperial mod https://downloads.phpnuke.org/en/c78612/mod-imperial-praetorians-free-download-full-review/) campaign/skirmish/online play
3)Kohan(steam only sadly but non the less its worth the buy)
4)ToEE (http://www.gog.com/game/the_temple_of_elemental_evil with the co8mod http://www.co8.org/forum/showpost.php?p=125119&postcount=57) dungeons and dragons 3.5 no mercy no hand holding its the real deal(as yr 3.5 rule-set knowledge becomes ever more twisted and perverse u will for ever more try to dominate the battle field despite trowing more and more restrictions on yrself(no more wizards/sorcs/druids in party/no more area of efect spells/no more offensive spell casting/no more crafting of uber items/never reload regardless of how many party member die in battle and the list goes on and on for ever more)
5)Etherlords 2(http://www.gog.com/game/etherlords_2) play it on hard setting and its an iq test in disguise as every new battle pits u against increasingly twisted and sadistic combos of hero specs and spell/creature selections designed to beat u to a pulp often in as less as 5 turns or worse an make u cry uncle for quite a while till yr brain can come up anything that can stand a chance against the enemys deck&specs
6)The battle for wesnoth (http://www.wesnoth.org/ crossplatform ) do u even dare to think yr a great strategist ?? try this unique blend of combat tactics, foresight and luck and sure enough some 1 to 3 hours later yr capable of playing trough the campaigns on easy albeit with some effort the u go online and luck out and beat some nob to a pulp and yet.... month perhaps even years later u willl be able(if ever) to go trough those same campaign on medium perhaps hard(if yr brain rly is as sharp u like to think it is) and yet... theres always that last difficulty level that gets u just about hopelessly crushed midway trough a campaign and makes u want start again from turn 1 and be even more wicked,twisted and filles u with a sick bloodlust for those darned near perfect ai players... and perhaps u slowly start to succeed against those near perfect ai's till one day out of boredom/wanting a break u go online an start beating player to a pulp one after another barely any challenge and the bam all of u sudden u stumble onto an unknown player that either beats u to a pulp or gives u such an amazing match that u just got to add him to yr friends list and constantly seek him out for a 1 on 1 or a team play against impossible odds(totally unbalanced survival scenarios/campaigns that are simply impossible to win unless all team mates are 'master level' players capable of expertly building up/recovering/pressing upon an advantage/disadvantage generated by a team mate/opponent)     
PS:all games mentioned above work under wine(even without the proprietary graphics drivers)

I don't know if its just me, but 60fps in Linux looks alot smoother then 60fps in Windows.

Oldschool FPS games are the thing I like though I play lots of games, sometimes in cycles. Mostly FPS games, sometimes RPG's and maybe the occasional RTS (mainly during lan parties though)

Currently I play (with the constraints that the free driver has)
1) OpenArena
2) AssaultCube
3) Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver
4) Gweled and Mahjongg
5) Occasionally Naev, TORCS and some other linux games randomly

I'm currently really looking for a new RTS/TBS game with a good online playerbase. I don't know if Spring or Megaglest has this. Freeciv maybe?

Also everyone I suggest you go play some Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe, it's just dog damn deep. :D

Seems interesting though I don't do much really 'serious' competitive gaming. I've enjoyed other modded servers with OA though, such as the AllRockets server and a City maps server that only gives you the railgun and the rocket launcher (and tweaks player speeds and gravity a little). Man, you can go fast there. That's one reason I like Warsow; you can really go stupidly fast with dashing, rocketjumping and walljumping. It's just cool.

I don't usually game on Linux, but it's mostly Team Fortress and the Worms forks for Linux.
Also, Awesomenauts is free on Steam this week, and it's pretty awesome..

I've been playing Oblivion via Crossover 12.5 on Manjaro. I have some mods running & they are OK, some graphical glitches from time to time, which I'm pretty sure will go away if I remove one or two of the mods. I'm using 1920x1200 resolution on 24" screen.

The only real problems are to do with audio. There is no music, which is unfortunate as the music is pretty good in Oblivion. Also after playing for a while, the quality of the in game dialogue starts to get scratchy.

Apart from that, I'm really enjoying playing this golden oldie again. :)

Nearly at the end of the thieves guild quests - which is probably my favourite quest-line in the game.  8)

is defined so that those who exist within do not even
realize that they are in prison.

...after playing for a while, the quality of the in game dialogue starts to get scratchy...

I've noticed that on a few games as well. It usually starts after playing for 4-8 hours straight on my end.
I actually don't mind it, as it's a good indicator that I need a break while I restart the game.  ;D

On-Topic: I've been playing a lot of Mass Effect 3 co-op lately. So much fun.  8)
While I may not always have the correct solution, my input could lead you in the right direction...
If you don't know what a command does, then type 'man <command>' or '<command> --help' to find out.
