I dare say that's exactly the point. Why do you think brick-and-mortars are so happy about it?

They probably won't be for long. Actually, they probably just legislated their own death certificate. Amazon's next plan is to put warehouses in major metro areas & provide same day or one day delivery. Residents with a PC (or smartphone) & a bank account will never have to drive to a "big-box" store ever again if they don't want to.

You have a point, I wasn't thinking of a game just costing tens of millions of dollars to make as AAA & you're examples are definitely what I would consider AAA even if they are all pretty old. I was getting AAA confused with "decent non-indie" games. You gotta admit, it'd be pretty funny if Valve released HLE3 for Linux a few weeks before they released it on Windows.

When steam for Linux starts getting AAA titles within a few weeks of the windows release then they will have something worth talking about.

The Cave: released Jan 23 2013 - Double Fine Productions / SEGA

Let me guess, this doesn't count as far as you are concerned cause it isn't Call of Black Ops or whatever the latest shitty FPS is?

You are wrong of course. Psychonauts, Half-Life, Portal, The Cave, The Killing Floor, Serious Sam 3 & Team Fortress 2 are hardly indie games. Trine, Faster Than Light, Uplink, Darwinia, Dungeons of Dredmor, World of Goo, Bastion, Towns, Legend of Grimrock, Osmos & Waking Mars are hardly shitty games.

Actually, Waking Mars was bar none the best game I played last year.

There should be a lot more games coming. I noticed when I was installing Steam on Kubuntu that there were about 25 games that I've acquired thru various Humble Bundles & Indie Royales that actually have Linux ports but haven't had those versions put on Steam yet.
