        Yeah, not all of them though. Doom eternal, at the time, kept having a frustrating crash for me so I lived in windows like I completed it. Didn’t even attempt with elden ring. Cyberpunk 2077 didn’t work either.

        But yes, in general I will game on Linux when it works. It is my preferred kernel.

          Doom Eternal just dropped Denuvo. And don’t they use Vulkan and OpenGL anyways? They did for Doom at least and that ran extremely well. Cyberpunk 2077 was terrible at launch on any OS and Elden Ring still suffers from bad performance to this day. Let’s also not forget that Steams Shader Precaching did help a lot with Elden Ring’s issue right after launch as well!
          Linux gaming is in a tremendous state if you ask me and it’s only going to get better. Linux users are increasing in number and with that comes better support.

            Ya don’t get me wrong, it’s so much better than 15 years ago. Until doom eternal I was already exclusively gaming on Linux. Then I just assume elden ring and cyberpunk wouldn’t work well so I didn’t even bother trying. And ya, for the hardware I have and the 60fps cap I’m surprised at how bad elden ring sometimes performs in windows…

          Starfield works on linux since day one… If you have an AMD graphic card. I’ve seen that it’s more complicated on Nvidia.

          I can only not play 1 or 2 games on Linux. Everything else literally runs native through steam. Use pop_OS it does all the work for you.

          Can’t play tarkov, tarkov runs perfect on Linux, but its anticheat does not. The devs of the anti cheat tarkov uses said they are planning Linux support but that was 2 years ago.

          Some other odder ones too. Let me know of questions.

          Oh this link should be your bible. It will directly tell you what runs, and how well it runs

      @Homo_Stupidus @kingludd, there are more and more games also for Linux.
      Most good games are certainly Windows only, not because it is the most suitable platform, but only because developers create their product for the majority platform, which at the moment is Windows. Linux is basically much better for running games than Windows, but unfortunately the majority of games available for Linux are Sidescrollers and remixes of games from 20 years ago, with exceptions, eg https://www.thedarkmod.com/main/
