The Number Of Linux Games Has More Than Quadrupled In The Past Two Years

There are more than four times as many Linux games available today as there were two years ago.

Two years ago today marked when Steam on Linux had 500 titles. Now today, the Steam Store lists 2,208 games as being available for Linux! Well more than four times the amount of Linux games available in just two years.

Of course, most of those games are indie titles while there have been many AAA Linux game releases as well like F1 2015, Shadow of Mordor, Tomb Raider, and many others. Steam on Windows shows 8,712 titles available. It's too bad thought that more of these new Linux games don't comply with our benchmarking requirements.
