      I don’t even watch movies or listen to music. 2-hours-long film gets stretched to 4-hours-long because I constantly pause it and check opened threads or randomly touch my dick. Anime has too many episodes and I’m afraid of starting to watch it. All I do is shitpost, masturbate and update my ODS spreadsheet where I keep track of my sleeping schedule and how many shitposts I shitted today.

      I certainly missed on a few things but hey at least I don’t play video games.

      As a full time Linux user who spends most of his time on a little old Thinkpad laptop without a dedicated GPU, I don’t always play the most mainstream games (and I wouldn’t if I were on Windows anyways because this computer lacks hardware useful for gaming). However, I do play some games occasionally.

      > Sometimes I play indie games with native Linux ports. I like these because they sometimes have interesting mechanics, stories, or soundtracks.
      > Sometimes I play older games that either have a native port, or are super easy to run in Proton/Wine.
      > Sometimes I play free and open source games. They don’t have the best graphics or the best stories or the most resources, but many of them can still be fun anyways. A few of my favorites are Oolite, Endless Sky, OpenRA, and Assault Cube.
      > Sometimes I like to mod the older games I play. I’ve also had a lot of fun with a Doom mod called Hideous Destructor that turns Doom into a slower-paced tactical shooter with a more grounded and believable movement system, a health system where wounds require medical attention and stack up over time to severely hamper your combat effectiveness if they don’t kill you outright, an equipment system where everything has both unique utility and weight as well as a likelyhood to be found again later on in some of the levels so that you choose woke af on preference and your situation what to carry, and believable, unique, and powerful weapons. Meanwhile, the mod manages to still keep plenty of what makes Doom special so that you’re not just playing Military Clone #42069, including the creative enemy variety and personality, the aesthetic and theme of the setting, the emphasis on being able to dodge and juke out attacks while minimizing risk, and even the great performance on simple hardware.
      > There are some more recent and major releases that I enjoy on a more powerful gaming PC I have back home that runs Linux. Namely, Payday 2 (native), Insurgency (native), CS:GO (native)…

            I’ve never played either of those two games, but I looked up a guide for Warcraft 3, and I found this:

            https://gigi.nullneuron.net/gigilabs/playing-warcraft-3-on-linux/
            It’s a guide for a fairly recent version of Ubuntu, so it’s up to date, although it mainly uses Wine, so this guide should roughly work out for many different distributions, long as they’re fairly recent.

            As for Call of Duty 2, I don’t have it, but I do have Call of Duty World At War, and I’ve installed and ran that without any issues just by using Valve’s Proton tools built into Steam, and that game is newer than Call of Duty 2, so I think it should be roughly the same process for the older one. This can be as simple as enabling a setting in your Steam settings page for Proton to be enabled for all Windows titles, hitting the "Install" button for COD as if it were a native title, and then hitting "Play" once it’s done. If you get issues where the game seems to not boot or crash or demonstrate strange behavior, you can google the name of the game and your issue.

            Here’s the proton database entry for COD 2:

      No, I don’t. I use my computers for office work, programming, and media consumption. I don’t care about video games. The only "games" I ever mess around with are old demos for retro hardware that doesn’t have a ton of software. I did this with a Doom port to OpenVMS to see what an Alphastation was capable of but I didn’t really play it much.

      This must be what some people are talking about when they say that a lot of 4-chan is just bot spam these days. Some bot scanned all the threads for keywords like "Linux" and a high reply count, found this one, and just linked a bunch of people and posted this image, and it happened to end up here because this thread fits the bill, even though this wouldn’t match the intention of a human trying to stir people up or make a point because it’s contextually out of place.

      Between Steam, Lutris, and GoG, most games run just fine on Linux. The only real sticking point right now is games that require third party anti-cheat software, which mostly isn’t Linux-compatible.

      I do. With proton GE performance is only slightly worse than on windows when it comes to directX games. For vulkan games they run just as well.

      That said I don’t play many newer releases simply because there hasn’t been anything worthwhile in ages. Last new game that actually had me excited was Prey and that was 4 years ago now.

      I can if I want to, easily. Others have already mentioned Proton so I won’t go there. Truth is that I play a lot less games nowadays, because Linux opened my mind to so many more possibilities of what I can do with a computer. I’m learning to write bash scripts and nix modules now, which is really fun!

      games are fun every once in a while but it’s more fun to learn how to do something crazy with a computer.

      With completely free software and a spare pc you could do something like this:

      Computer with 3 ethernet ports:
      *Remote Management
      *VM[pfSense, two ethernet ports{one to wan, one to switch}]
      *Various server software
      *Third port gets internet from itself through the pfsense firewall

      If you want to throw pcie network cards at a problem you could actually run multiple pfsense vms from one machine with a local place to manage them and the ability to have wildly different configurations running for different purposes.

      Linux is behind in games, but you can play them. If you’re a gamer you’re better off just using windows 10. There are little things that you wouldn’t even think of. For example fallout new vegas the radio doesn’t work properly and cuts out, the performance is more unstable than windows and has some artifacting with light. Payday 2 you can’t use mods which is really irritating since wolfhud works very well and is almost needed to play the game properly, especially in stealth missions, holding keys down sucks. Phasmophobia people can’t hear you talk ingame, just straight up broken. Anticheat in games doesn’t work, and there’s some really fun games that use anticheat such as DBD, warzone, dayz, squad arma 3. Like I said, you would never know these problems exist until you actually used linux full time and tried to play a large library of games. Very sad because many people use ubuntu and it works well but then the gaming just absolutely wrecks their perception of linux, and then they go back to windows.
