Choice of games needed for linux newbie

Post by Hygieia » Sun Mar 27, 2016 10:44 am

I got fed up with windows so have just installed Linux and am loving it!

On the same computer winxp I played lotro f2p and got to level 82 with my character.

Ive tried some of the various ways of playing lotro on linux but to no avail. The most up to date advice is over a year old so maybe Im missing something. Id love to play in lotro in linux but it seems too hard to set up.

I would therefore like some advice on any roleplaying or fantasy game I can install and play on my system

Linux mint rosa 17.3 32bit
Intel celeron cpu 520 1.60GHz
Memory 1.5GB

Thx in advance

I have little experience with lotro like games but you can try a search for Linux MMORPG games on LGDB or Steam (which also has free games) and look a the suggestions:

LGDB: http://www.lgdb.org/games?sort_by=creat ... 22_tid=All
Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/search/?t ... nux&page=1

Try some other searches if it's not exactly what you meant.

Edit: and check the alternatives to lotro as suggested by others on alternativeto.net: http://alternativeto.net/software/the-l ... form=linux
