Not sure how long it's been available for Linux as I've only just got wind of it, but 'Gary's Mod' is a hoot.

Why does nobody mention Battle for Wesnoth?

btw I'll have to see about getting Dota2 running on this rig.
I'm new to Linux.

I'm not sure what is meant with 'native Linux game' but I guess it's any game that doesn't need wine or anything similar to run?

Anyway, right now I enjoy Cities: Skylines. :)

According to Steam my favorite game is Shadowrun: Hong Kong - Extended Edition at 144 hours played, with Pillars of Eternity a close second at 137 hours played. Great replay value on both :)

These days I'm biggest on open world games, so my favourite native games are likely OpenMW (Morrowind), Mad Max and Shadow of Mordor.
I do enjoy my isometric RPGs as well, so Wasteland 2 and a few other modern titles are great and classics like the Baldur's Gate games, Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment are also up there.

There's also some pretty great open source stuff I enjoy, some of which have been around long enough I assume some of you would recognise the names, others that are newer. Battle for Wesnoth, 0 A.D. and Alex the Allegator 4 have all consumed decent chunks of my time.

I don't use Steam, so my favourite GOG linux game is Shadow Warrior (the new release). Also Flatout 1. Otherwise, use Playonlinux a lot, and grateful to Booman for guides.

I was lucky enough to get Rocket League for free from Nvidia when I bought my EVGA GTX 1050 Ti SSC. Unfortunately my desktop died a week later so I haven't played it since then (probably over a year now...). I didn't get the chance to try it out on Linux, just Windows 10, but I thought it was really fun.
