mentioned you were testing), you can go to Applications ->Software
center -> type "games" into the search box to browse. You can also
have a look at getdeb.net, which has a number of aptitude-packaged
games available for Ubuntu. <--those are all installable with one
click. I'm not as familiar with openSuse, so I won't comment on that.
Of course, there is also the option to install windows games using
Wine (which is a compatibility layer to run a number of Windows
programs under Linux) but results will vary depending on the game you
have chosen. It is also possible to download games from developers
site or elsewhere on the web. These may come in a compressed format
and need to be compiled from the command line. Though I can't imagine
there would be any games for linux archived in the 7z format, unless
it is a collection of flash games or something else downloaded from
bittorrent. But I am certainly no expert on that. Not an expert on
much, for that mater. :)
