Anyone know any good text-based RPGs out there? I tried to download the one in the add/remove software menu, but afterwards when I went to play it wasn't in the games menu.

Ya, text based games likely don't get put in the menu since, well, they're text. Just open a terminal and type the game's name. Or if you don't know what the binary is called run something like (substituting the package name for "foo" below):

Code:
rpm -ql foo | grep bin
