It might be that they love to play those pirated games, don’t know why, when there are bounteous open source games available for free. The Linux games are hugely popular and that’s not just because they are free, its also because a developer can take a great game and make it even better. There’s an array of free open source games waiting to run on the Linux platform. So I got the top linux games in 2009. And here I come.
