Jimmy Atkinson emailed to point us towards his “Top 25 Linux Games for 2008” list.

I’m not a big video game fan, and we hardly ever cover gaming on this blog. But alas, I decided to head on over.

I’m glad that I did! Seeing #3 on the list, “FreeCiv” brought me back to my first all-nighter at the hands of a video game. I remember playing Civilization for ~12 hrs straight without getting up for food or a bio break. Good times.

Many of the games on Jimmy’s list are free and run on Linux, Windows and some on Mac. The majority are OSS.

Check out the list and let the rest of us know if you have a favorite on the list.

PS: Does anyone know how these OSS video games are impacting the overall video game market?
