What game are you truly thankful to have on Linux & SteamOS?

By - | Views: 38,995
I've asked you what number one game you want to have on Linux, but what about games we already have? What is the number one game that you are truly thankful to have on Linux right now?

That last question was tough, but boy is this one difficult.

Honestly, for me it has to be Rocket League. It sure did take a while to actually arrive on Linux, but the wait was more than worth it.

I'm genuinely scared to load the game due to fear of not doing any actual work. It's a fantastic game to grab a few people together, kick back with a rum and coke and just play-ball.

It's a great game for our livestreams too, since it's another game that enables us to get the community involved, it has so many uses!

For me, its Divinity Original Sin. This is such a huge game with a good old RPG feel, split screen multiplayer and gamepad support. I've played it 2 weeks straight with my girlfriend.

Football Manager. I play FM series since Championship Manager 97/98, when I was just 9 years old. Since then, never missed any CM/FM game.

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, what a gem. It's not only about it being on Linux, I'm thankful this game exists at all. The isometric tactical stealth genre was pretty much a dead genre before this.

I'm going to have to go with Dota 2, it's by far the game I've played the most.

That said Guns of Icarus, PAYDAY2, Civilisation (V and BE) make it hard to be sure. I may not have played them as much as Dota, but I'm not sure that means I appreciated them less.

As an RPG fan it's hard to go past Divinity OS or Pillars of Eternity...

But I'm gonna have to say Mad Max. I knew nothing of it going in, and have managed to rack up quite a few hours. I also want to play it some more, which is more that I can say for many other games.
