Except half of the list are either make believe or just developers promising stuff. Hell, The Witcher 2 is simply the Windows version with a wrapper.

The problem is that's a very small part of the library. The other problem is steam OS is actually worse in almost every single way when compared to PS3/4 360/x1.

I hope it can evolve and get basic functionality. There is no reason it shouldn't have native flac support.

I don't mean this to sound negative. I am VERY excited for what this can be. Right now it's just kinda ehh.

These are the big named titles that are already available, in the process of being released or just announced for Linux/SteamOS. The actual number of titles available is already between 600 and 700.

It's more important to worry about SteamOS's future rather than adding existing games.

The way I see it is, Steam Machines are supposed to compete with consoles. Neither the Playstation or Xbox have backwards compatibility, so older games are completely irrelevant for that market anyway. The thing that really matters is what kind of support will Steam Machines have at release. Will the next GTA support it? What about CoD? Dark Souls 3? The next Tomb Raider sequel? If these kinds of high-profile mainstream games actually do have flawless day-one SteamOS/Linux support then I can see it being a damn compelling platform, regardless of whether or not it'll run games from the past.
