I was experiencing the same problem and have been looking for a solution a couple of weeks long, and found the solution !
There are a couple of things that need to be updated to be sure that the solution will work.
Be aware that all systems have different packages installed and i am not very familiar with linux myself, for some updates i was helped by some very helpfull people in #sabayon on freenode.
As a first you need to have a updated version of Wine installed, at the time i am writing this i am running wine-0.9.51.
(to check your current wine version open a terminal and type: "wine --version")
I used wine-doors to install Steam and all the necessary fonts and such.
By the time i had these things installed i was able to start steam and install Counter Strike: Source and even Half-life2.
But when i started those games it showed a loading screen and after that it just disappeared and i was still on my desktop in steam like i never started the game.
The solution to this problem is to simply disable in-game community in steam's options, i guess this function will only work on windows systems.
I hope this will help some people with a similar problem, if not try to post as much information to the problem so that other people might be able to help with it.
You can start the game from terminal to get a detailed error.
