Linux might not be famous for its games, however there are still plenty around. You will not find the latest Call of Duty, though. Rather, there is a long list of classics and small and fun games. From the Scumm based offerings from Revolution, to remakes of classics like Freeciv, LinCity, and Ultimates Stunts.
As far as I understand, many of them are OpenGL based, or require a properly configured graphics card to run.
