Speaking of gaming on Linux, I believe we should first of all begin with listing the clean native Linux titles, perhaps primarily with those available in the repository. Any notable mentions?

Let me throw something in. HERE is the think. The thing is called The Dark Mod, a selfstanding idTech4 game being an incredibly stylish tribute to the Thief series, remarked as a respectable independent achievement of the year 2014. I cannot guarantee the link will always be there, so in case, head directly to their website HERE.

EDIT:

Just for the note, I use Steam only for the forums the day current.

PS:

Tactical redirection to how make Quake2 run on Linux natively, local thread HERE.

Have you heard of Red Alert on an open source engine available free for Linux, basing on freeware assets? The link is HERE and there is more good news, as there are actually three games available running on the same engine: the Red Alert, the Tiberian Sun and the Dune 2000. The bad news is, the game is unavailable in the Ubuntu repository, but it is available as a Flatpak, so you will have to follow the instructions on how to properly get a Flatpak installed, if unfamiliar already.

HERE are general instructions on Flatpaks for Ubuntu, while below is a command to be executed once the linked set is completed - mark that you will need to reboot as well:

Code: [Select]
flatpak install --from https://flathub.org/repo/appstream/net.openra.OpenRA.flatpakref

One of the most impressive titles, as well as the one unpresent on any major distribution platform for the time being, is Xonotic. Portable edition. With the online contents of dedicated servers, this game, is truly amazing.
