The State of Linux Gaming 2011

When I decided to take on this article I thought it would be easy. Grab a few quotes from some developers, re-hash WINE support, check out the latest version of Battle for Wesnoth... Simple stuff.

Need an MMO
Hopefully the OSS game devs will put something together with the newly sourced iDTech engine aside from yet another Quake rehash...
The sad truth is that the majority of F/OSS games fill atleast one of the following, if not multiple ones:
* Looks horrible.
* Is yet-another deathmatch FPS.
* Lacks any kind of single-player story.
I do realize that creating deathmatch FPSes is easy; you don't need a coordinated effort in drafting a story, you don't need to write your own engine, you don't even need to worry about the graphics either as people are too busy killing eachothers to notice anything else. Anything more complicated quickly requires too much coordination to be possible.
