And yes, many will be ported to Linux in the future. and I dont think netflix has been ported, chromeos has it in their chromebooks via a hardwarechip, andriod has it but porting from arm to desktop may not be able, the only way atm is wine so not really ported to linux last I saw, but better.

I bought it since it was very cheap on Steam a few days ago. Unfortunately, the Linux version is not as good as the Windows one (there's some slight but constant stuttering in all animations, 1920x1080 doesn't work but only 1280x720, and Alt+Tab doesn't work, forcing me to quit the game just so that I can reply to a chat or whatever.) But even though that's very disappointing, the game is still lots of fun.

The best Native Linux game i have ever played was Neverwinter nights. but by today's standards that engine is old. and the best looking game i have played is Serious Sam 3 BFE (there could be better looking games, but i have not played them).

Closed source favorites:
Aliens vs Predator 2
Geoff Crammonds Formula One Grand Prix ( I played the first one on an Atari st ) and part three on a windos pc.

Closed source game I enjoy (if Xbox360 games count): Halo.

I thought it was a really awesome action-shooter. Neverwinter Nights w/ expansions is a close second.

For me the number one, I am still playing that occasionally. And the Civilization series of course.

Cities in motion 2 (CIM2) is quite addictive and gameplay and graphics are A+
The premise in CIM2 is to manage and improve an existing city, rather than outright grow a city with zoning and other management inputs. It really complements the Sim City Series games, as a more plausible and detailed transit system simulator. Sim City series never really managed to bother about even fairly basic details of their sims. (Still, it was a fun concept/game for for growing or evolving a city starting from a tiny town.) CIM2 very much complements this. It'd be great if someone comes up with a city converter between the two different universes; conversion could be done in a fuzzy way, much like X Plane (another nice impressive linux game) generates plausible scenery.
My sys is Ubuntu 14.10 and the install and gameplay is flawless on this, using a 3 yr old lower end laptop (AMD A6-3420M cpu/integrated graphics and vector compute).
My only complaint is Steam's somewhat obnoxious repeated email verification requests ( I think it asks everytime cookies are cleared, which for me is on every browser restart. That's a really stupid paranoid system IMO; I hope Steam gets some common sense injected into them soon.)
