Linux(/Wine) games to get hooked on (coop/multiplayer)?

liamdaweWhat about a good old RPG with Divinity? Pretty sure that has decent co-op and will last you a while.

While so obnoxious and boring when I try to play it alone, I am looking for two years already to play it with someone... but by current kiwi timezone does not allow that, since most people I know are in Europe:/

If you have a good enough computer, you can always try Starcraft 2. The first 2 campaign is now free to play, and the multiplayer can last forever, if you are willing to grind the ladder each season. Also it is a good test if you have some secret Korean relatives, because even with 10% Korean blood, you can climb easily (if you are not Korean, I am so sorry :-).

SC 2 also has a co-op mode (haven't tried it), and ofc 2v2 and other modes. Arcade (mods) can be also good fun, and it is free.

You might probably need Wine staging for it.


I used to play Killing Floor a long time ago, and it was fun. It is a co-op zombie wave shooter. Many maps, good mechanics, and probably still better than the 2nd game (which has no Linux version). I just mention it, because I don't know if it still has a playerbase, might worth checking out Steam forums. It is frequently on sale.

Left 4 Dead 2 is similar, but different enough to play. Since it doesn't have a sequel, it might have a bigger playerbase than KF.
