        Played them all a couple years ago but only the other day I was thinking how nice it would be to have them on Linux and re-play them.

        Downloading!

          Correct that to: Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode 1, Half-Life 2: Episode 2

          Someone was excited when he typed that.

                Proprietary Nvidia drivers work fine, I get within ~3% of the same performance as I do on Windows with my graphics card when testing various games/benchmarks.

                  Sweet

                  What games do we still need?
                  Defense of the Ancients 2 (DOTA)
                  Anything else?

                  Is there any 64-bit Steam client yet?

                  Things are starting to look good, we got some really good games now.
                  Portal, Half-Life 2, TF2, L4D2.

                  I just wish there was a 64-bit Steam...

                    Amen to that, with corresponding 64-bit builds of the games.

                      get the right hardware and it automagically becomes the year of linux for you

                          CS:GO is needed

                            DOTA2, CS:GO, Alien Swarm, Half-Life Source, Half-Life Deathmatch Source and Portal 2 are all still missing. Was Ricochet released for Linux? The Source SDK and Source SDK Base would be really neat to get Linux versions of, especially if that were to include Hammer, all the map compiling tools, the facial animation tools, the Soure Filmmaker, exporter/importers for models, etc

                            Edit:

                            What about Day of Defeat Source? I believe that was released but Wikipedia doesn't list a Linux version. The original Left 4 Dead is also missing.

                              Well, some people, myself included, are getting an extremely irritating lasting stutter bug with the nVidia drivers which knocks some games down to >10 fps, then back to normal. (and repeat.) For me the only thing that seems to work well is Intel HD with Mesa.
