The 13-Year-Old's Picks

At the opening of this book, I mentioned my nephew, Paul, now a happy Linux user and, as it turns out, a happy Linux gamer. Since I wanted to know what an expert on video games finds entertaining, I asked him for a list of his favorite games so far. I've already mentioned at least one of the games he likes: PPRacer (or TuxRacer). His list of favorites is pretty varied.

For starters, he thinks FreedroidRPG is awesome. Johannes Prix and Reinhard Prix's FreedroidRPG is a beautiful 3D role-playing game with superb graphics, a cool soundtrack and sound effects, and a well-developed world (Figure 19-15). Here's the back story. Sometime, in the not-too-distant future, a mega-corporation known as Megasoft (or MS for short) has effectively taken over the galaxy. They managed to do this by using their vast corporate power to install Trojan horses in every computer-equipped machine on the planet, including those of government and police. As a result, all of humanity was enslaved. Due to some terrible programming error, however, the machines rebelled and took over, thus making things worse than they already were.
