Well I'll be damned. I know that Linux gaming has always been possible, I have been doing it on some of my machines, but mind you I either play older games (Half Life/Portal) or newer games that are more on the puzzle side. But had no idea there were people crazy enough to be running fucking Warzone on Linux:

    Tools like lutris are a blessing

    Yep. Works 70% of the time, 50% of the time 😉

    @SortOfTested indeed. Even if it were to be mass adopted, the dude has configuration videos in which he shows how to do it. For a dev familiar with Linux, sure yeah, lengthy but still a process. For the average user that has no idea about Linux it will continue to be a trip to nopetown.

    Me? I am a simple man, I use Windows for gaming...or a console and be done with it :P

    @SortOfTested until an update comes out and it doesn't work until yet MORE patches and further improvements are made to wine.

    I was pretty amazed at proton for steam. Wine was decently good on its own but with proton it just takes all the guess work out of configuring the environment. I have had a pretty smooth experience.

    @FrodoSwaggins considering how people have been successfully running various AAA games I think it will be a matter of time before some dude goes into a competition sporting good ol' Linux.
    Honestly I don't see why not, afaik if PlayStation can run their consoles with a modified BSD system I am pretty sure it will eventually happen as a viable alternative.

    @FrodoSwaggins Yeah this. More than half of my steam games are windows-only and they run smooth as hell on my Linux system with Proton!
