Version number/name.  It doesn't suffice to say "the latest."

Version numbers, please.  Your idea of "the latest" might not
necessarily jive for reality, version numbers ensure everyone is on the
same page.

TF2 really either just works or it doesn't.  If you followed the
instructions in the AppDB for installing Steam and TF2, it should just
work.  Failing that, I wonder if you really have the right video drivers
installed.  One thing that would help tell is the output of 

$ glxinfo | grep rendering

I wouldn't keep that from stopping you from trying out the unix world's
selection of games until you get it working.

While it's true that id has a more open policy than Valve, I'm not sure
Doom 3 sucked at what it was trying to be.  The Doom franchise is id's
Fantasia.  It isn't so much about the storyline (yes, it's cheesy) as it
is about the eye candy.
