Ok, this might finally tip the balance enough for me to start thinking of completely uninstalling Windows on my desktop.
from the stats is one of the most played.
now we need football manager 14 to come out, and for Rome total war, we got 0.A.D. as substitute for now
Then Only game in the top 10 we'll miss is Elder scrolls V...
But we kinda got Elder scrolls III Open morrowind, so maybe who knows what might happen in the future.

Then call me crazy, as I would love to be able to play classics like the KotOR games or GTA: San Andreas (or my many other games that will never get ported) without having to close down my native Steam client and fire up one of my Wine Steam clients. It would be real useful and I do hope once the dust settles and Linux/SteamOS adoption has gotten underway that they do in fact add such a feature.

Would be nice to see it one day change from OpenMW to OpenES.
I wonder why we haven't seen soem of the dosbox wrapped games, like the old xcom's, on the linux market.
And here I am wanting to play the game for the LAN party on the 12th of October using a Linux box...
Come on, I had to try and find some negative angle, right?
I know for a fact that Rome II is coming because well before Rome II released, CA made a big statement that Rome II would receive 'free additional operating system formats' in the future which obviously could only mean one thing. No one seemed to pick up on that news though, they were too busy talking about the other things CA stated. Rome II is a broken game though, and every week receives a humongous patch which clearly shows it's practically an unfinished game still in development, so I wouldn't expect Rome II for Linux until the game is fixed.

But that's wishful thinking, and I wouldn't buy it either way due to it being Steam-exclusive. Instead, I'm having a very good time playing UFO: Alien Invasion (version 2.5 is currently a release candidate).
