Upcoming articles up are:
Part 5. FPS (Preferably not already covered in Part 1)
Part 6. Turn Based Strategy, I especially need help here, as it is my least favorite genre.
Part 7. RPG including MMO types
The rules are simple all games must:
1. Must be open source.
2. Must be available for Linux & Windows at the very least.
3. Must have a website for readers to visit, Some great games didn't make the platformers article due to there being no active website, but were available in all major repositories.
4. They must offer Binary/Installer Downloads.
The intended audience for all my articles are primarily Windows users. I'd like to expose them to the best that open source has to offer, while trying to shield them from the hassles inherent in compiling the source.
Feel free to leave comments/suggestions here or at the blog.
The first three articles have been completed and can be found here.
