A few months after Valve officially launched Steam for Linux in 2013, Gabe Newell gave his LinuxCon keynote crowd a bit of music for their ears. "It feels a little bit funny coming here and telling you guys that Linux and open source are the future of gaming," the Valve head-man said. "It's sort of like going to Rome and teaching Catholicism to the pope."

And with Linux not being so resource hungry those games will run much better in Linux than Windows.

I play a couple games on Linux via Steam. Haven't had many issues with the actual Valve games (Half life, portal, CS:GO) but some of the other games that come out can be a bit of a pain. One such game is Dying light, likes to crash randomly... but its a great thing what Valve is doing and I am loving the progress being made for gaming on Linux!
