Yeah alright you got me, it looks intriguing enough. My biggest hurdle is the games though

There are many games for linux, there was one but as usual I'm broke that I found by typing the search "diablo 3 type game for linux" it looked pretty cool when I found a video of it on youtube and it was $20 or less and that is a good price for a good rpg nowadays. I believe if you look you could find some games you'd like but you have to search and unlike windows an update won't kill your games. Some windows games will work with linux and if worse comes to worse you can run windows in a virtual machine though I'd recommend windows 7 or xp if you'd like to run older games that won't run on win 10 because it won't play xp games with copy protection as I found out which ruled out a few hundred dollars worth of games I owned so switching to linux was ok since my games were trash thanks to MS and win10.

Check out steam play/proton. Valve is integrating wine and dxvk to make windows games work in Linux by simply installing them via steam client and all the other shit installs in the background.

Not all games are supported but they're making huge gains. Reddit had a good sub for it but idk about on voat

Agree. Steam just added support to play many windows only games on Linux. Note that the performance typically won't be as good.

I said there was a game I like and this is it. Took me a while to find since I had no clue of the name but a decent search found this game called torchlight 2 and here is a video of it on linux . This one is Pillars of Eternity which is like Baldurs Gate series with multiple player parties though the guys making this video are idiots they actually show the making of characters and stuff also . Hope this gives you a reason to check out linux since these seem like great games.

Also check youtube for video's of installing it or trying it out so you can see it before downloading. I'd also recommend using a usb stick because it is a lot faster on the installation than a dvd is though an extra dvd is great for a backup.
