The 5 most played games on Steam are playable on Linux

Steam OS 2.0 Preview

This statistic is nothing short of curious, Linux users can enjoy the 5 most played games on Steam just as they enjoy them on Windows and Mac

The folks at Valve have posted some stats about Steam, one of the statistics that he has published are the games that are played the most on his platformIt is curious because the 5 most played games at this precise moment on Steam are also available for the GNU / Linux platforms.

Without a doubt, this is proof of the unstoppable advancement of Linux systems in terms of the games market, it seems that it was yesterday when there were very few and poor quality games for Linux and Windows ate the entire market for PCs. since Steam came out every day the number of games increases availables.

As for the games that occupy the top 5, they are the following:

  1. Dota 2:
    It occupies the first place of Steam games, a freetoplay MOBA game in the style of Warcraft 3 with which you can get good online games with people from all over the world.
  2. Counter-Strike Global Offensive:
    I think the Counter Strike saga does not need any introduction, who does not remember his childhood in cyber cafes playing Counter in LAN mode? The original Counter Strike was the most popular Half Life Mod in the world. The Global Offensive version is the latest version of all. The price is 11 euros.
  3. Team Fortress 2:
    Let's talk about another Half Life mod, in this case it has a touch like more cartoons. It is free and it was also included in Half Life 2.
  4. ARK: Survival Evolved:
    Very interesting first person game, the truth is that since I have not played I can not provide many details. Although the game is not finished, its price is 28 euros.
  5. FootballManager 2015:
    Game dedicated to lovers of the beautiful game, unlike games like FIFA and PES, this one is focused on the work of the coach. Its price is 50 euros, however there is the 2016 version that is worth only 5 euros more which will be released on November 13, I have been playing it since I won it in a twitter contest and the truth is that it is quite entertaining.

Certainly good games, which shows that Linux users are increasingly being considered. However we are still far from the level of Windows games and the lack of top titles like Metal Gear Solid V means that there is still a long way to go, although little by little we are adding.

    and it is logical that the most played games are ported to linux, nor do the least played games be ported ... being a business, this is not so curious, is it?

      Now, but if you look back years when there were great games on PC and Linux you could play solitaire and little else because nobody cared, you are glad that more and more people care about Linux, which also means that each more and more users are using linux systems.

        I think that what I do is provide information on a related topic and as an extra I receive compensation.
        I do not see any harm, I would have liked to know about this website before having bought more than one game on Steam that later I have seen that on the website I am talking about it is worth half.
