Nothing to play on Linux?

A lot of people complain that there aren't enough games on Linux. But in fact there are plenty, even some commercial games run on Linux. Many people don't want commercial games on their computer because they are loyal to Free Software or maybe just don't want to pay for it. But there are some interesting games (with graphics) for Linux. Although there are few [free] action games, Linux offers very nice strategy games. Some of these are, FreeCiv which is a Civilization type of game. NetPanzer is a nice game where the goal is the capture the most outposts, and Glob 2 another civilization type of game, but very creative. They all have multi player modes (netPanzer is multiplayer only).
These are just some of the examples, I personally recommend them all. Another short note, all these games can be found on Debian's (meaning Ubuntu's too) Package Manager.

Here are some example screenshots:
