Why do you think people want games on Linux? It's because rebooting to Windows is tedious.
Linux is the better desktop and working environment, so it is what you use when you don't play games. Having your desktop be an alt-tab away is convenient to quickly switch between gaming and other things.

Now why isn't the demand for games on Linux higher? Because most people who use Linux are professionals, and they don't spend that much of their time on the computer playing games, so when they need to, suffering the reboot is ok.

In a lot of countries, it's legal for kids to drink at 16, and most of them drink way before that, getting to experience alcohol and its effects as they grow up.
Compare that to the US, where you need to be 21, and where instead of being exposed to alcohol gradually young people indulge in binge drinking and other forms of excess as soon as they get the right to do so.
