What's the most modern game you've ever played on (GNU/ if you insist)Linux?

What distro?

How? (Wine, VM, ...)

HW specs?

    Infinifactory on Lubuntu 14.04. i5 and an excessive 16GB of RAM. Works great straight out of steam.

    Plenty of other DRM free games from humblebundle, or just filter steam for games with SteamOS/Linux support.

    Hmmm, despite fact that I really don't see this question as appropriate for devRant ;) I must answer.

    First - disclaimer. I don't play games a lot (a bit old, 42) and, for some time, I play only retro and/or indie games.

    Game I play regularly (and is a quite new game) is "Don't Starve" (including all expansions and MP). Native Linux app (via Steam), playing on my main desktop machine, 64bit Ubuntu OS (14.04/16.04) on quite weak platform - Intel G2030 CPU, 4GB RAM, Nvidia GTX430 GPU

    Although as @firusvg said it might not be a rant-like post, I was kind of curious, because I still use Windows for gaming and I heard about issues with games and linux long ago which were solved either by running VM or a way better HW was needed. So just checking. It's better to hear a common user ran this and that modern game than some gameplayer with strong gaming tower did this and that. I ain't gonna buy overpriced gaming tower, am I? (I'm too lazy to build it myself, hehe.)
