The file system will be a big thing for loading the game only. Most
Linux installs will use a swap partition that has no real file system so
swapping will not be affected by the file system type. I run on Debian
with ext3 file system for /usr/local/ (ut2004 is installed on this
partition) i don't think ext3 is the best choice but i haven't got round
to changing it. ReiserFS and XFS seem to preform well for different
things but i don't believe there has been any clear winner in the
benchmarks Ive seen. Maybe ReiserFS4 will be one to watch now that its
getting merged into the kernel.
