Linux isn't just to work. You can also have (and deserve) some fun too.
We should start a refence guide to Linux games available freely over the internet.
I know little uppon this matter, so, it's up to you, guys...

Every member should post in this way:

[B]Name Of The Game[/B] - [Game Category]
http://Link To The Official Site Of The Game

[I]A small introduction to the game and personal comments.[/I]

Thank you.

America's Army - 3D Action (FPS)
http://www.americasarmy.com


[quote name='America's Army FAQS']
Q: What is the America's Army game?
A: …an accurate portrayal of Soldier experiences …

The America's Army game provides civilians with an inside perspective and a virtual role in today's premier land force: the U.S. Army. The game is designed to provide an accurate portrayal of Soldier experiences across a number of occupations. In the game, players will explore progressive individual and collective training events within the game. Once they successfully completed these events they will advance to multiplayer operations in small units.
[/quo
This is a great free game endorsed by the U.S. Army and it's multi-platform (it has Windows, Macintosh Linux clients).
Note: Neowin has an official clan at this game: The Neowin 1st Armory Division

Cube - FPS

http://wouter.fov120.com/cube/

Cube is an open source multiplayer and singleplayer first person shooter game built on an entirely new and very unconventional engine. Cube is a landscape-style engine that pretends to be an indoor FPS engine, which combines very high precision dynamic occlusion culling with a form of geometric mipmapping on the whole world for dynamic LOD for configurable fps & graphic detail on most machines. Uses OpenGL & SDL.

Flight Gear - Flight Sim

http://flightgear.org/

an open source fligh simulator on par with ms flight simulator 98.

Racer - car driving/racing simulator (Open Source, on top of it all!)
http://www.racer.nl/

I got this to install about a year and a half ago, but could not get it to run (various errors). Looks pretty impressive.



EDIT: Some good answers here. I'll pin this for the time being, and we'll see how this progresses.

Enemy Territory - Quake3-engine based FPS (First Person Shooter)

http://www.castlewolfenstein.com

Originally slated to be an expansion to the popular Return to Castle Wolfenstein game, Splash Damage, after nearly completing the game, decided to make a standalone game because of the difference in playing styles, objectives, and classes that the game brought. ET has a strong community in the competitive world as well, with well over 200 active clans.
