Rooting for you Linux gaming. I really would like to drop Windows on the gaming rig

Try dropping the gaming. I grew up gaming and blew more hours and dollars than I care to admit. One day I decided to go over my checking account transactions for a year, and my jaw dropped when I saw how much I had spent.

$3 here, $9.99 there, sometimes a new, $70 game. It was like $700ish dollars I had spent.

So I decided to quit gaming for a year, and take another $700 to invest in a real life hobby. I chose woodworking. Bought a nice chisel set, some saws, clamps, scribing tools, etc.

I recently made a toy chest for my daughter. Designed and built it myself. Took me probably 40 hours over a few weeks, but holy shit, I got and still have more satisfaction from that one project than every accomplishment from every game I've ever played.

At this point I wonder why I even played games in the first place.

Just food for thought, man. You'll outgrow them eventually - everyone does. But you'll be surprised how good it feels when you do.

You are started on it when you are young and have no opportunity to occupy your time with stuff like wood work. It is easy for a child, pre-teen or teen with no transportation to substitute videos games for their lack of adventure. I find myself wondering why I didn't take more agency over my life when younger only to conclude that it's not because I didn't want to but because it wasn't even feasible until having the freedoms of an adult. These days I buy maybe four or five games a year and I don't even have the inclination to finish them.

Yeah, I've started to outgrow them recently. I only have like one game I play on a regular basis anymore, and even that is only once or twice a week. I'm just too busy working, and when I get home I'm too tired to play a videogame. Also now when I buy and install new games, I'll play it only one time for an hour or two, and NEVER touch it again. I just don't care for videogames like I used to. I grew up playing videogames ever since I was a little boy. Yep, I agree, everyone eventually grows out of it, some sooner than others, some later than others.

I suspect that number is highly dependent on hardware and overly optimistic reporting.

I've seen people submit reports to that tracker website, saying a game was completely stable and working, and then with a note that says: but in game videos won't play, but that's fine, because you can view them in MPV outside of the game.

No, that is not fucking fine. If a game does not work, in its entirety, without tweaking, in Proton, then you should not report that it is working.

Saying that, people say Rebel Galaxy does not work, yet I've been playing that for hours so, who the fuck knows what is going on.

Maybe the videos in Rebel Galaxy don't work ;) Or maybe something else completely unrelated to gameplay is broken?

From reading the reports, they claim the game is failing to launch completely, or otherwise crashing while playing. I've been playing for around 5 hours now and encountered only one minor issue (slow frame rate when using the map and commodity screen). Not game breaking, but nevertheless, unacceptable for a game to be marked as working and stable.

I count myself lucky I can play it.

I'm placing my bets on even more Windows UWP lockdown in response. Anything like that will also be done under the guise of "protecting the users".

I wouldn't say perfectly, but yes, plenty of games are decently playable. Let's not exaggerate anything, it's still in beta with plenty of room for improvement.

I tried "Doki Doki Literature Club" because it was the only free title to try out. I can confirm it works. As for the game itself, I spent about 10 minutes just mindlessly clicking my mouse and got bored. I suppose that's how the game is supposed to work?

So, there you go. I can confirm this works for at least one "game".

That game appears to run natively on Linux with the build on itch.io.

Edit: nevermind it's just the devs fucking up their tagging
