Games broken on Mesa

From Linux Gaming Wiki

A list of games currently broken on Mesa drivers.

Please make sure you list the Mesa version used. For Mesa git, please only put the date and in DD/MM/YY format. This will make it easier to sort the table.

If you don't know the Mesa version, please do not post it as it's not helpful to anyone.

If the game is broken on multiple versions of Mesa, please use a new entry for each one. Only add data to an existing one if you're using the exact same Mesa version.
