If this is a desktop, I suggest purchasing a dedicated video card.
Stick with Nvidia GeForce cards. You could get something as low as $50 but the more you spend, the more games you will be able to play.
I have a Chromebook running ChrUbuntu and it has an Intel HD 2000 chip. I can play a few games, but most modern shader 2.0 & 3.0 games won't run.
Blatant lies, HD3000/2000 should run Half-Life 2 just fine (it can even run in DX7 mode, I played it on a GF4MX card with standard settings!).
Seems like Linux Mint 16 could have something broken, as this guy also can't run a game that should run fine, having just black screen:viewtopic.php?f=225&t=154980
Anyway, try to update MESA drivers to newer version from different repositories than Mint's default. Maybe the new MESA10 will help, as they have made some improvements for Source games, according to their log. Unfortunately, as I mentioned, Linux Mint 16 seems to have some issues so it might not be of assistance at all. If so, reverting back to Mint 15 or installing another distribution would be the best choice...
