There are some good games for Linux, real problem is nobody maintains the packages for them. I downloaded a 600 meg Ubuntu 13 DEB package for Sauerbraten (Cube2) and it was the old version. I then had to go to a Russian site to get an RPM for F19 and it was compiled wrong. Almost a gig and a half of wasted bandwidth! Nobody wants to play Assult Cube (Cube1 engine) but that's all Red Hat put in their repo. It's like nobody feels like helping the "community" (to use word loosly) of little tyrants who are running these distro... myself included.

I think I'll make an RPM just for myself though.

They have Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter-Strike Source for Linux but I would also like to see Counter-Strike Global Offensive. Plus what is preferably the best distro for gaming? I prefer Fedora due to the yum packing manager?

Ubuntu. It's what Steam supports, and it has the Software Centre (which carries many commercial games).

Terraria. It would be nice if it was ported to both Linux and Mac.

Are you saying that steam doesn't support other distros?

Ubuntu is the only distro that is officially supported, but Steam works fine on other distros, too.

Yes.

Steam works fine with other distros. It just doesn't "support" them. That means that the people packaging Steam for those other distros are responsible for making sure that it works.

Ooohh gotcha. Scared me for a sec, I thought for a moment I couldn't use steam with my soon-to-be Arch computer.
