        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!

                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.
