Linux restricts your choice of games, I'll give you that, but you can very much play on linux, I speak from first hand experience.
Steam runs natively on Ubuntu, and about a third of its library as well, I think.
For example :
Terraria, Civilization, Binding of Isaac, FTL, Rimworld, Cave Story, Super Meat Boy, Portal, Team Fortress, and so on and so on ...
You'll easily find more games than you could play in your life just with this.
Then you have wine that works or not depending of your luck, but all the 2hu games runs fine (that's the only windows-only games I cared to test).
I would expect all the AAA games have been thoroughly tested as well.
And then you have the games that are easier to find on linux than windows, such as nethack and its numerous forks or TuxRacer.
