    This needs updating. Remove Plan Linux and add another distro

    I noticed a mention of the “Crossover Games” platform. Last time I checked, Crossover is just a program for making Windows software work on Mac OS X and Linux. Do they have a game store I don’t know about?

    Maybe one to add to this list. https://sourceforge.net/projects/mgame/
    I’ve been using it for the past few months and I really like it.

    Number of games running native on Linux is so small, compared do Windows. The same goes for Mac.
    Wine does a good job, but those games barely run on Windows, for which they were written for. Even that with glitches and crashes. Wine often makes things worse.

      That is so true, a lot still needs to be done for Linux to become a reliable and efficient operating system for gaming, on the other hand, thanks for sharing with us your wonderful experience and thoughts.

    As long as Linux doesn’t get the proper driver support from Nvidia and AMD, it’s not gonna be as viable for gaming as Windows is.

      That is absolutely true, support for appropriate drivers from Nvidia and AMD is still the biggest challenge to gaming on Linux. We(Linux users) are all hoping for a change in that, however, many thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.

        Actually, Linux gets pretty good support from Nvidia and AMD. In fact, Nvidia doesn’t even make Pascal drivers for Mac OS X, and it makes them for Linux.
