  1. I’m wondering if the author has even installed linux in his life.
    There is no Witcher 3, MortalKombat X nor Lego Jurassic World, no Batman Arkham Knight on linux! FFS, get your facts straight.

  2. Dude, do you even play on Linux? the first games were announced but they are not on linux yet…

    Please correct your article so new linux users don’t get confused with this.

  3. The List is so incredible wrong. Its just click bait! Wichter3, Mortal Kombat X, Lego and Batman has not released for linux. And the most of this games will never seen SteamOS. But there are a lot of good games for Linux. I recommend all of u guys to go to gamingonlinux.com. Best news site for penguingamers
