18 Extra Hot Linux Commercial Games (Part 3 of 3)

"There remains a scarcity of commercial games available for Linux with the big game companies rarely venturing into the Linux world.

However, the recent Humble Indie experiment, where gamers chose the price they wanted to pay, showed that this is far from the truth. The game bundles were available for Windows, OS X, and Linux.
