    I'd be curious to see a game on the blizzard launcher and how that works. Personally play destiny 2 alot and without that no chance I could properly switch

    Also, if you plan on trying other games in the future, I'd recommend trying the first person shooter Dusk

    A decent amount of games already have native Linux ports, so Linux gaming is viable.

    That is very impressive demonstration of Linux. I am impressed!

    The only games I own these days are Steam ones. Can these games install with Lutris and if so, how?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the intro to Lutris. I'm going to try this out! I am one of those Windows hold-outs for this reason, primarily. We will see. 🙂

    I just have to say that I'm stunned by this video. Clicked on it after I watched your Christmas video. I had no idea that the Linux desktop looked so good or that you could play games on it. Thanks again.

    Great content. I hadn't heard of Lutris before. Thanks for the info. I have it installed now, and will definitely enjoy seeing what all it has to offer.

    The weird thing is, is that Sony's PS4 is Linux BSD called Orbit OS, whilst Sony has monopoly over their console, we don't see, hardly if any PS4 games being ported to Linux on the Desktop. Now surely these games are written with the Linux code inside them, somewhere in the coding? Wouldn't it be nice to maybe someday see some PS4 titles come over to Linux, that have not been officially released for Windows?

    Been gaming on Linux for 20+ years. This is my first since since the late 90's that I picked up a Windows games thanks to Steamplay. Tekken 7 is awesome on Linux via Steam's Steamplay.

    I began to dualboot to Linux during the heydays of Windows XP.
    Back then, aside from some still popular FOSS games and Adobe Flash self contained executables that ran inside Wine 0.something, nothing did.

    So the statement that gaming sucks on Linux isn't true for me at all.
    Yes, it's not as good as on Windows (which makes sense given how things are) but we've actually gotten much closer now with Valve baking Wine or rather Proton right into Steam releases.

    True enough, AAA games still do not work all that well which is for many a must have, overall however the situation is much better even than few years ago when Humble Bundle started to sell Linux games and Valve wasn't there yet.

    What I myself still miss the most is VR support.
    Sure there are a few native games and Proton actually gets some more running but as a owner of not just the Vive but also a Mixed Reality headset, it just doesn't work just yet.

    if the industry made games with Windows and Wine compatibility and used Opengl or Vulcan APIs , we wouldn't have any problem on Linux. for example Doom/Vulkan (without DRM).
    the main problem for linux gaming is translating the DirectX API to Opengl/Vulkan, not translating the Windows API to Linux.

    Just been trying out Linux Mint 19, first time in Linux since 1995, got Steam working and using Steam Play was able to get No Mans Sky running, can report that it was working as well as it was in Windows, might have been quicker on the loading, will need to do some timings to check that.

    The funny part of this is I spent all day yesterday setting this up and just as I got it all working you put this video up in a much simpler way which would have saved me load of time you sure you aren't trolling me 🙂 One tip for people that prefer controllers on older games don't bother with x360ce and take a look at antimicro which will convert gamepad to key presses and has profiles you can setup for each game so definitely something you should talk about in a future episode.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Witcher III & GTA V all Triple A titles, fully working on Linux. I have got 95 % of games to work on my Manjaro/Arch. Ditched Windows 2 years ago and have not missed it one bit. Merry Christmas Buddy.

    Chris, you really should upload these videos (gaming) @60 FPS, otherwise there is no way that the viewer can tell whether or not the game runs smoothly. It doesn't seem smooth but that might be because the video only has 30 FPS.
    Try out Starcraft2. It is the one game for which I boot up Windows at the moment.
    It might be interesting to set up PCIe-passthrough with KVM+QEMU, VFIO and Looking Glass. That way you can at least run Windows without any relevant performance loss in a sandbox, when Windows gets annoying it only is annoying in a virtual machine, you can do anything else in Linux in the meantime.

    A nice CPU and GPU in your system.

    Paladins is currently on 'Garbage' status, but I /still/ wanna play it on my Manjaro! Is it possible that a free-to-play game with such a status in Proton be playable with a couple of work-arounds, or is this more of something I should vote for in Steam's forums before it becomes playable? I figured there's a need to share this sentiment if we want and need more people to swith to Linux for gaming. Wishing for the best!

    'Windows games' on Linux, that is an interesting new development. I hope that developers will finally start supporting Linux. Step 1: use Vulkan and other cross-platform standards.

    I stopped dual booting in 2003. It has come a long way since then. Major difference is much better performance now and a lot less tinkering needed to get Windows only games to run good.

    I tried to install overwatch yesterday. It installed. However, it crashes on me after 10 seconds. I don't know what the problem is. It just tells me, Python could not delete something because it was not there.

    easy "gaming on linux" quick-and-dirty: opt-in for the (latest) beta on steam. make sure you're running a recent kernel, and the drivers for your GPU are up to date (like, grab the nvidia PPA, for example). if you feel lucky, select "enable all games" for proton and just give it a shot. it's all still pretty new, and wonky at times, but it already came quite a long way over the past few months. there's lots of great feedback (and 'how to fix it' comments) on the https://www.protondb.com/ website. if you link it with your steam account, it'll even filter for the games in your steam library.
    i'm having a blast with an ~8 year old lenovo desktop workstation (with a stronger psu w/ adapter cable and a dusty early-days gtx950): fallout4, subnautica, civ6, eve online, xcom2,… eeeeasy.
    amongst the games i'd love to play again (but on linux!) would be space engineers (triple-!!!), life is feudal, and rust. it's about time for some of the developers to catch up i guess: get off your (buggy) niche engines, or go home. especially you 5-years-early-access-people… yes, you. hrmph.
    PS1: having winetricks installed does help with some of the 'hacks' for "theoretically-playable-but-stubborn" games
    PS2: you might run out of file handles with some games (freeze/crash during start-up/loading savegames, for example). i added "ulimit -n 16384" (quadrupling the default of 4k of my environment) to my "/usr/games/steam" start-up script and even wasteland2 now runs smooth like silk after hooooours of playing and dozens of safegames :p
    PS3: grats for closing in on 3k subscribers 🙂

    People are reporting that Warframe via steam has just become 1 click with the Proton 3.16.6 Beta update (released 22nd, and with the latest gnuTLS update, which is hypothesised to have solved the issue). MGS:V multiplayer and a swath of other games are working, even some anti-cheat has reportedly started working (which makes perfect sense if it relied on previously absent encryption/secure packet types).

    Also lmao @Getting Over It ;^D

    I tried installing Warframe on Elementary OS juno via Lutris. The game ran nicely but there was no audio and I was unable to get sound to work. Skyrim ran great but I had to leave my mods out which was a big disappointment. I know you can get them installed but I didn't make the effort to install them. The 2 main games I play but have had no luck running on Linux is Final Fantasy XI and Final Fantasy XIV. Since you're on Vanilla Arch Linux, there's another youtuber I'll give a shoutout to "Gloriouseggroll". He has a lot of videos on getting games running on Arch Linux and I go to him for help in getting some games up and running.

    The biggest game for me is Magic The Gathering Arena. If that game works I'll switch
