That part confuses me a bit. I have two systems. One modern Intel + NVIDIA system with latest closed-source drivers on Arch Linux which is probably the ideal case for Linux gaming when it comes to hardware support. The other system is my old 2007 laptop with NVIDIA 6150 Go GPU. I'm aware that it only is supported by the legacy branch of NVIDIAs drivers (304.88) and is only capable of OpenGL 2.1. This meant that I never could play any Source games like TF2 which require OpenGL 3.0 (which was first supported by the 8000 series and is the oldest generation still capable of using the new >310 driver branch).

So theoretically I could at least launch Dota 2 on my old laptop? Why is the OpenGL requirement lower than for CSS or TF2?
