I found this Ars Technica article on the state of Linux Gaming worth recommending. It notes the sad state of Linux gaming not too long ago and how there are a ton of choices now that Valve has entered the market.

As someone that was Linux only back in the day I can say that running the few native games was fun, yet extremely limiting. I had success running some games in Wine but it was never great and I couldn't get the full power out of my hardware. Things are much better now, even if the article outlines how imperfect Linux gaming is.

Although I haven't used Linux in a long time and therefore don't pay attention to the gaming news for it, I found a link in my email I thought I'd share with you.

Yep, those are there for sure and Valve just dropped a SteamOS/Linux sale today bringing many games to SteamOS/Linux.

Crazy to see games like Batman, Payday 2 and Saints Row make it to Linux.

Wow, that's pretty awesome!

And BORDERLANDS. That's a huge series, and now they have their two big games right now on Linux. I never thought I'd see the day where some of the few games I want on Linux that *aren't* there already are from id Software, and major publishers were supporting it. Come on id! You were the chosen one!
