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 :)
