You should probably start here:

Also, does anyone need another game besides Minecraft?

+1 I was going to mention a specific page, but it's mentioned on the one you cited. – jwernerny Apr 8 '11 at 16:22

the one i officialy recommend is playdeb at

You can install the deb repository by:

  1. Add to your repositories (Go to your update manager and click on the Settings button) deb lucid-getdeb games

  2. Add the secure key for it
    wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -

  3. Update your repositories.

Now you can install any of the games that playdeb has to offer at

The list has grown from around 20 games to more than 100 official games for ubuntu, ranging from RPG, Strategy, Logic, mmorpg, etc..

Another very good one is which is a news site for linux games. Very old and very good.

Lastly the from Ubuntu has several list of sites that are very good also.

They've released similar bundles in the past and will most likely continue to do so in the future.

Other venues to look for games include Linux Game Publishing (commercial): (free):

and Lutris (emulated):
