Don't buy or play any game which contains SJW propaganda, is developed by SJWs, panders to SJWs, or is developed by individuals who pander to/support SJWs.

This a million times over. Main reason why I stick with 80/90s era. Being PC was mocked instead of gospel

There's no reason to ignore games without a Linux version unless you're a Linux gamer. Even if you aren't, it's still worth a couple points in the "good citizen" column if someone is doing that, but it ultimately isn't going to help Joe Windows User as a first order effect.

I'll still buy a game if I can run it under WINE, but I have to want it a good bit more. After all, some things work immediately, some things take a lot of effort, and sometimes a future update breaks stuff. I'm much more willing to buy a Linux game than a Windows game that I have to jump through hoops for. But I don't even subscribe to "no Tux, no bucks", and I certainly would never think a Windows guy should.

can't be bothered to add Linux support

#6 is completely unreasonable. You have NO IDEA how much work it is to build a video game. Porting to Linux is in most cases impossible since Linux doesn't support the technologies the games use. Its like asking a semi-truck to use an engine from a ford focus. You are asking too much.

Then there may be a market opportunity for a Linux engine that supplies these facilities to games that people will buy.

Linux doesn't support the technologies the games use.

Actually the technologies that many games use just don't support Linux. Technically speaking.

That's funny, those are the same rules I go by as well. Keep up the good fight. \m/
