    You're looking at the New Releases tab.

    Now see 11.000, internet says 3000.

    Think it is also better they market Protogon running games, and real Linux games.

    they should add those that run under proton well - maybe steamOS icon with P next to it or something. so we could know which ones run in proton. or better yet just add proton rating next to windows game.

    Given that they have a whitelist - even though they don't go out of their way to publicise what's on it - where they've essentially taken over support for those games running on Linux, I'd imagine that they'll start marking at least those ones in the Store at some point. Maybe as part of another SteamOS push in the future? I'd imagine they're looking to remove the architectural blocks, like anti-cheat software, first. A lot of popular games are blocked from working by anti-cheat stuff.

    At the moment Proton is really at the stage of being very useful to people that like to tinker, rather than something that's completely friction-free for literally everyone.

    oh that's the most idiotic part about those games. made on engines fully supported by linux (Unreal, Source..) with the added windows only "anticheat". ridiculous. and it would be so easy to port them.
