    Phoronix: Steam Linux Games Shoot Past 1,900 Titles

    It was just one week ago writing about Steam on Linux having 1,800 native games available and today the 1,900 threshold was crossed! As of writing this article there's been 1,913 native Linux games available...

    Umm ... "Sort by"???

    If you do it by release date, it's back to 1819 titles or so.

    Jump to the last three or four pages on the initial "Relevance" sort and you will see that many are not going to be released until months from now.

      Then they changed how things are displayed. For months my bookmark where I routinely check from has been: http://store.steampowered.com/search...s=linux&page=1 (Including where the number was 1800 last week) Playing around with it further.

          this is really strange.
          not michaels fault.
          If you sort by relevance or the other categorys (except user reviews and release date) his numbers are right. Maybe its a bug or Valve wants to push the number. But then I do not get why they do not show the unreleased stuff when you sort by release date or user reviews.
          However the MacOS and Win game numbers are counted the same way, so relatively they are correct nevertheless.
          And they show a 2 percent points increase for linux against win since the 1500 milestone

            It is really cool that now even racing games work fine with Linux - currently playing DIRT Showdown. Btw. some eON ports run fine with older cards or Intel onboard (tested with Haswell) like DIRT Showdown or Bioshock Infinite, but still check for OpenGL 4 and GLSL 4.10. Somebody should remove those stupid checks. Until Intel reports OpenGL 4 you can override it with a custom startup command: MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.1 MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=410 %command%

              Thanks for that command Kano!

              And yes according to Steam survey a good part of people are on an Intel based system so they cannot play most games just because of this check...
              (Intel HD4000 is #2 in hardware survey)
              Another tiny % will come and increase the Linux usage as soon as Intel brings OpenGL4.0, cross fingers & wait!

                isnt it a bundle, which will count as 1 game?

                  There are 1819, not 1900.

                  Even with that number you saw, how did it not ring alarm bells that 100 games appeared since hitting 1800 ~nine days ago? It doesn't take a genius to work out that number wasn't right.

                    Hi, I just registered in order to make a post here

                    I did just a quick-test: When you search for e.g. "overfall", you will get a game, which is not released yet ("coming soon"). If you now filter by "release date" or "user reviews", the search result is empty - simply because there is neither a release date nor are there user reviews for this game.

                    It seems like there are 92 games that are not released yet.
