^ note it's a bad Dotemu emulated "port" which tends to have huge issues regarding controls. Just grab it for the legal roms and play them on a much better emulator (like....any emulator that's not from DotEmu)
Voodoo2s aren't 100mhz stock
Geforce256 isn't released as a beta on New Years '99 under the Quadro brand
386DX vs SX isn't about a missing FPU
DOS gaming isn't a bilinear 320x200 16:10
DOS PCs aren't better than the Macintosh
Old PCs aren't 'aesthetic'

Really? I thought it was a real port tbh... Well good thing it's free then
I don't like dotemu , I got motoracer some years ago when it was released by them and it never really worked on my systems ever even after a couple of updates IIRC so I just forgot about it :|

It appears that GOG Connect has Unreal tournament GOTY, which is nice since GOG has the linux port of the game while Steam doesn't

Dead Space is free on Origin.

Also, if you subscribe to the event "Make War Not Love" from SEGA, you'll receive steam licences for Revenge of Shinobi and Streets of Rage (both are Genesis/Megadrive emulated games).

About those SNK emulated games... unpack them, copy the ROM files and put it into MAME.

I don't even get a option to select the Linux port. Nor is it even listed anywhere in the GOG store.

The native Linux port of UT99 is rather bad to begin with, depends on OSS /dev/dsp for sound, uses really ancient libraries, uses a old libmikmod that has a very annoying plate reverb effect that you CANNOT turn off overlayed on the already inaccurate music.

There are also a few really good mods for UT99 that depend on 3rd party DLL files, so you're better off just playing the thing under Wine...

Is the first game on PC at all? I can't seem to find it on Steam.

MoleZ is an insanely fun (and violent and gory!) multiplayer game for DOS wherein a bunch of moles are thrown inside a cave-like arena and must fight to the death using various types of projectile weaponry. Up to three players can play on a single keyboard (+1 using joystick/gamepad). The game was originally conceived as a means of testing VESA/SVGA graphics modes and so does require a reasonably fast 486 or Pentium-class system (as well as a keyboard that can handle multiple simultaneous keypresses). It features a haunting soundtrack and respectably beefy sound effects for those with SoundBlaster-compatibles.

The control scheme takes a bit getting used to, but once you do you'll be fragging your pals late into the morning hours...

Methuselah, AMD K6-III+ 400 MHz, Voodoo 3 PCI, etc...
Longbottom, Pentium III 1 GHz, RivaTNT 2, Aureal Vortex 2 etc...
