What games do you play on your box, wizzies?

Starting out with a classic, Minecraft works flawlessly. Really enjoy it on my machine, especially since I can afford more generous RAM allocation.


I've recently played through all the campaigns included in repo for Lugaru, and have been thinking about trying to make a dumb anime mod for it.
Next up I'll either dip into The Dark Mod or finally play through the repo installs of Beneath A Steel Sky and DarkWeb which have been kinda rotting on my drives.
One of the other in-repo games I enjoyed in the past and would like to see others pick up is called Antares, it's the source release of an ancient 1994-or-so Apple game called Ares that nobody played.
It's pretty surprising how expansive the OpenSUSE gaming repos really are.
If reliable multiplayer communities or large modder communities existed for them then 0AD and Unvanquished take their spot in the sun too.


Isn't linux gaming just PC gaming with less options?


I'm testing Witchfire (Unreal Engine game) through Wine but I'm getting much lower fps than in Windows. In Windows I can play 1440p on Ultra settings. Do you think there is a way to fix it?


here is russian forum with torrents for cracked linux games


I downloaded some of games from here in Past

its useful if you dont want ot use steam


Valve is pushing hard to make Linux gaming a thing. It never was a thing and gaming on Linux was a hit or miss. Either you managed to get the game running through Wine or you gave up because even the most modern graphics card doesn't have good driver support on Linux. It did have a nice community of opensource software. You could download and play Linux games for free, and even modify and rerelease them at your leisure. id largely lead this by opensourcing the Quake engine. Even playing the Dark Mod on Linux is amazing. But then indie devs, moble phone developers, and Valve are coming in and making people pay for shitty games that have no guarantee of working or that you will have perpetual access to them after you buy them.

nerds like games and linux is for ultra-nerds so it should be a perfect match


if you don't know what a boot loader is i'm sorry you're not human in my eyes


the person that loads the boots into the truck, i guess

just finished lego batman 2 on ubuntu


its an abstraction, a program that originally was designed to get around the limitations of the bios, loads the boot disk which can then begin the operation system initialization.

in the pre bios days the bootloader was just a simple convention for where the machine would look and begin loading from there, this had portability and reliability issues. i am unsure if its still necessary now that we live in a world with wide spread UEFI


Seems like it's not even fully released yet, so probably will get some proton fixes in the future.
Linux already runs many games better than Windows through proton these days and NVK Nvidia driver is looking very promising already, AMD drivers are already better on Linux. Lots of games that get reported for having issues have issues with deck and not desktop, or it's zoomer crap you shouldn't be playing either way.

Cached Lutris thumbnails of games I've played in recent months. Only two of them are new releases (Blood West, Slay the Princess).
Everything else is just replaying or meditatively wandering around (like Skyrim and Archolos). Something like S;G is just always on my PC, like talismans, after being 100% finished years ago.


GOG Tyranny, runs natively :)

Such a good game, second play through presently .


are these lego games good? been wanting to play a 3d platformer lately


GTA5 on Wine


>runs natively

could you briefly sumarize what that means on linux please? if something isn't in my package manager and it is not in the AUR (which i also install via package manager) then it better be an .appimage file because other than that i wouldn't know what that means yet and how to install it.

t. leanooksnoob on manjaro kde who uses steam for everythang


Running natively means it doesn't need wine or dxvk, or some other translation layer.
From.what I remebed native games usually come in a folder with an executable, similarly to how portable window applications are.
