    Hi,

    Portal 2 has a native GNU/Linux client, but it's not advertised in steam store (open beta).

    I now only buy native GNU/Linux games too, but preferably out of steam (like humblebundle) for DRM reasons, but I made an exception for Portal 2

    Yep, you just have to "opt-in" : right-click button on the game -> "properties" -> select beta in the drop-down menu of the last tab.

    Sorry, I don't know about CS:GO because I don't own it. But acording to http://steamdb.info/ it doesn't seems to be ready yet.

    Cheers.
