Celestia is a free, open-source, real-time space simulator. Not really a "game," per se, Celestia is like a three-dimensional planetarium that lets you travel throughout the solar system, to any of over 100,000 stars, or even beyond our galaxy. The interface makes it simple for you to navigate throughout the universe at any speed you wish. Available for Windows, Linux, or Mac.
Crack Attack is a Tetris-like game with a twist: You have to line up blocks in rows of three blocks of the same color in order to remove them. You use keyboard commands to move blocks side-to-side and juxtapose them to get them in rows of three.
Originally written for the Linux operating system and licensed under the GPL, Tux Racer later went commercial, and newer versions were no longer available as free software. Extreme TuxRacer is the open-source descendent, available for many operating systems, of the original game. It's an addictive little 3-D racing game that is played by using the cursor buttons to guide a penguin, sliding on his belly over the snow, through various terrains, while trying to catch herring. You have to try it to understand.
FreeCiv is a free turn-based multi-player strategy game, in which each player becomes the leader of a civilization, fighting to obtain the ultimate goal: To become the greatest civilization.
FreeCiv was designed as a multi-player, networked game. You can play against opponents from all over the world. You also can play alone, but in order to run the program, you need to connect to a computer running the FreeCiv server. This is not a problem as long as you have a working Internet connection.
Tetris Queen is another Tetris-like game played to background music by the British rock group Queen. It also offers some features not available in the original classic, such as a "Destroyer" mode that really perks up the action.
