Back2Gaming’s List of Cross-Platform PC Games

Max Payne, Battle Realms, and Prince of Persia: Warrior Within are some of the unforgettable PC games I played during my college days. They were from a time when innovation was still a common thing among game developers. However, despite all the great PC games during those days, PC gamers are confined to using Windows. Those who are on a very tight budget are forced to use an illegal copy of Windows just so they can play the PC games they want.

Today, PC gamers have a choice. If you cannot or do not want to spend for an OS, you can use Linux for gaming. Playing games on Linux has improved a lot since Valve released Steam on Linux last February 14, 2013. No more messing around with WINE which is a frustrating experience for some. More high quality games are coming to Linux every year and it made using Linux for gaming more viable.
