Tech Drive-In takes a look at the 20 most exciting Linux Games for 2012

In terms of stability and flexibility, Linux blew away its proprietary counterparts a long time ago. What it sorely lacks is developer interest, especially in the gaming department. But there are signs of a major revival. To the delight of Linux gaming enthusiasts, EA started publishing games in Ubuntu Software Center in May 2012 and there are even talks of Valve finally warming up towards Linux.
