Linux is a dynamic OS, which means that it adapts to the needs of the user community. If more gamers were to switch to Linux, there would be a great improvement.
You think that you would not switch to Linux because of the lack of games, when really, it's the other way around: games in Linux are not great because there is not a big gaming demand from Linux users.

So, since majority of us here are hardcore gamers, its almost a requirement to have a PC with Windows installed on it. I currently have my gaming laptop dual booted with 100 GB to Windows and 200 GB to Linux Mint 12. Since its a laptop I need every little bit of system resources I can squeeze out of it. Currently the 3 games I can play on it are Savage 2, Heroes of Newerth, and Minecraft (Not counting Gameboy Emulators etc).
Anyways, I know most if not all of you do not use Linux at all, i think I'm the only one who has a desktop with only Linux installed. However, if you do use Linux on the side, for programming, windows troubleshooting, taking a class, networking (*gasp* hacking), and you do not feel like switching to your windows partition here are the top most polished games that do work on Linux.
Of course the due missed a few including the fact valve is moving steam and it's source engine to Linux (Left 4 dead is the first one to be ported over).
P.S. Gerzis and i were discussing this earlier and it sort of got me googling things so, uh, here are the results.
