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

By - | Views: 38,983
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 in 2016, the game I played most is Dwarf Fortress. 2nd is Ark Survival Evolved, then Cities Skylines. What can I say, I like building things. I would like to thank all the Dev's who support Linux, but give a special shout out to the Bay 12 Brothers. You guys are simply unmatched, DF is awe inspiring, a never ending source of fun for me. Thank You and Happy Holidays!

Pick one? Too difficult, sorry. So, without gradation:

Transistor. Bioshock Infinite. X3/Rebirth. War Thunder. Borderlands 2.

Yesterday bought Satellite Reign seems to be great Syndicate successor. Also liked Shadowrun and ok - dark fantasy Victor Vran was excellent too. U know what? Like pete910 said: all :D.

The game I'm really thankful to have on Linux is: Alien: Isolation.
Since I was able to test the first version on gamescom 2014, or even since it was announced, I've been looking forward to a release. And it was so cool that Feral ported it to my favorite OS!

But of course there are other games I'm also thankful to have on Linux ;)

Why do you make me choose? :'(

Difficult to answer, since I already purchased a bunch of games from the Steam sale I haven't yet played... Undertale, Valley, Pony Island, Oxenfree, Life is Strange, Planetary Annihilation: Titans and Firewatch to name a few. But of the games I own for GNU/Linux which I have played, I'd probably have to vote for either XCOM or XCOM 2.

For me it's Arma 3. Even if the Linux support is lacking.

If I have to say just one: Borderland 2

I would say Rocket League, easy. Very accesible and popular multiplayer title. It's the kind of game that can seal the deal in convincing people going to Linux.
