    I have the big box GOTY edition. Can you only play it if you bought it digitally?

    Since I got the Valve Pack I was wondering where it would take me (with GNU/Linux). Reading forums made me a little sad, as most people believed only Source games were worth the effort for Valve. I hope now we can get to play Half Life series beginning to end (my fear was that we would not). Great news!

    I don't think so. but you can simply find out, install it, and see what steam does.

    Add game to library I believe, its called.

    It then asks for the cd / dvd key of your game.

    Edit: it's not listed in the Linux games and the Store page claims it's Windows-only... Where did you get this from Micheal?
    Michael doesn't like to post his sources so other sites don't use them

    Source is Here: http://cdr.xpaw.ru/linux/

    Also Counter Strike 1.6 is coming with instructions: http://www.gamingonlinux.com/article...-to-linux.1668

    It should have a cd key to redeem on Steam if not you didn't get a legit copy (all Valve games have cd keys for redeeming on Steam).

    Not that it's that important, the old GoldSrc games run pretty well under Wine. But native Linux games are always Good News... still waiting for L4D2, though.

    Apparently, CS 1.6 is also available on Linux as of now:

    Hadn't time to test it, though.

    They release a game on Linux 15 years after it was released on windows. I would say that is piss poor. Where are the all the games based on the source engine? We have been hearing about them for a while now but Team Fortress is all I have seen. *yawn* 2013 better be the year of Linux games. Windows is wasting a perfectly good disk for the sake of games.
