This post is a bit dated; just adding for the sake of people still bumping into it: The Desura and Steam digital distribution clients are now both available on linux. :)

Make way for the year of the linux desktop! \o/ :p

I'm assuming everybody bought the humble indie bundle and it needs no introduction in the linux world? :)

Also, the article above mentions wine, but neglects to mention PlayOnLinux, which automates much of the process of installing games (and other popular windows software) on wine.

That guide neglects a very important aspect: commercial linux games.
It's a mixed blessing that conversations about linux games always end up around the 'freedom' argument and neglect commercial offerings; which is probably what will drive linux game demand in the first place.

  • >< and >Penguspy< are excellent linux game portals (mostly commercial offerings, but quality free offerings also listed in both)

  • I liked the >Playdeb< option mentioned above

  • I have mentioned >djl< elsewhere, which is quite a nifty idea, modeled after the Steam client paradigm.
