Resident Evil 2: Remake is no surprise! It’s been a long awaited remake and it’s quite popular among Linux gamers as well. For good reasons! The old version of the game is probably THE best Resident Evil made in the series so far. It’s only natural a remake would excite the crowds. It’s not plug and play yet (there’s a bunch of steps required to make it work) but once you do it looks like it can be played and finished:
Tales of Vesperia, on the other hand, has a pretty good rating in ProtonDB and is apparently plug and play. Here is a video, but not running on Linux:
It’s an old game, but it’s been upgraded graphically speaking.
Next, Braveland Heroes. I must admit I had no idea what this game was until now. It’s apparently a turn-based strategy game, indie-style:
Let’s end with a quick mention of the Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle which included a bunch of old brawlers from the 80s like, a la Capcom. Final Fight, Knights of the Round, Battle Circus… and more (7 games total). There’s few ratings on ProtonDB but it looks like it works.
In case you were wondering if it’s worth grabbing a game that has basically an emulator running old roms, the main point here is that you can play online with friends with each game. Whether this matters or not is, up to you I guess 🙂
That’s it. If you want to mention any of the other games, leave us a comment!
