Today, Valve has expanded their SteamPlay whitelist for 39 new titles on Steam, as first reported by GamingonLinux. What does this mean? It means that these are titles that should be easily playable on Linux without fiddling with anything. They should just work like they would on Windows, which is great for those that would like less reasons to use Windows.
So far, Valve has over 3000 titles on Steam that have some kind of Linux support. Valve has stated that more titles are being added every day, with some batches of games including SteamPlay support.
There are a few notable titles on this list. For instance, DARK SOULS III, Dungeon of the Endless, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and The Curse of Monkey Island are all great titles that every gamer should at least try.

Quick Take:Having an open platform to play games is only a good thing for Valve if they want to escape the walled garden that is Microsoft's Windows 10. There should always be a choice in how games should be played, and Valve is helping provide that choice for those who don't necessarily want to use Windows in order to play a game or two.
