For many individuals, computer gaming is nowadays an essential part of everyday life. This should not be seen as a negative. Whilst violent computer games have sometimes been identified as contributory factors in criminal activity, and undeniably they can be very addictive, it is important to recognise the real benefits that games offer besides simply providing a means of great entertainment.
For example, computer games can help to improve hand-eye co-ordination, enhance creativity, create team players, help children gain self confidence, and even provide a welcome distraction for children and adults who are suffering from poor health.
Fortunately, there is a huge number of Linux games that are available to download for no charge. This pool of games is ever increasing. However, finding the best games is time consuming given the vast number that are available to try. Games which are visually unappealing can still be frantic, fast, and fun, whereas games with gorgeous graphics may have little gameplay.
This article is the third and final instalment in a three part series, identifying Linux games that are worth giving a whirl. We have again tried to cover a wide range of game genres. Hopefully there will be something in this article which will be of interest to any type of gamer.
