    While Warhammer and F1 are nice games, their not overly popular games people play. I would suggest some Bethesda games but we all know that company has quite allot of animosity for linux.
    If they could get RIOT to pay them for a League Of Legends port, it would be very good.
    I'd actually pay for that, as a player, but i don't know about the rest of the player base...

      Obviously there is a penalty in performance comparing to windows versions, and that scares people away.

      Dispite Linux have a ton of games already, they need really more AAA games, PUBG like they said, it would be an easy port, since UE4 allow for easily porting games like this.
      What linux needs is more people on it, but I think people usually gets overwhelmed but the ammount of distros available, even so, most of them are just small different changes than others, it's always difficult to decide for one distro.
      And then for AMD users, if we stick with a LTS version of ubuntu for example, the Mesa will stick the the same feature version for a long time.
      It would be great if there was more possibilities to update without going through terminals and risking having a conflict with or whatever dependencies.
      I know there is Olaf and other repositories, but would be amazing to have an official way and direct way to keep drivers updated.

      Like I said, I'm a windows User, I can't see myself using linux only, since I do a ton of benchmarking, and I love to squeezze each frame advantage in my build, also I play a lot of games that aren't available on Windows, but regarding other software that I would need, I think I would miss some video editing software that I have, and MSI Afterburner and Visual studio IDE if I needed to performance some development with it.
      Aside from that I could easily move on to linux.

      Sometimes, Windows is better, and that's ok.
      What you need to know about Linux, is this:
      - It's hard to get into! I am a software engineer and had lots of trouble getting into it. Because it's such a different philosophy...
      - If it were the same as Windows, it would be impossible to be better. Therefore, it HAS to be different.
      -Picking a distro, is not hard, it's fun. You can set up different / (root) and /home partitions and all you have to do next is format / (root) and mount /home every time you distro hop. Yuo can take your sweet time, test all you want, and savour all the Linux flavors you please until you find somthing that suits you.
      - About drivers, i have an AMD and didn't had to install anything. It just works. I didn't even bother to check what drivers are installed... Do it get the absolute maximum performance to the last drop? NO! Is it enough? Hell yeah!

      Bottom line, it's a bout choice:
      -With M$ you get more performance and more choice when it comes to gaming.
      -With Linux you get more freedom, privacy and RAW power, but less choice and performance when gaming.

      As long as you're happy with your choice, it's completly fine.
      My recommended distro for Linux Starters is Linux Mint (personal choice).

        I have a feeling game developers are afraid of cheaters. Because on linux, you can write a cheat directly into the kernel.. Allowing you to completely bypass client-side anti cheats.

        PUBG for example relies heavily on BattleEye, a Windows anti cheat that checks for rogue Windows kernel drivers and processes. Good luck doing that on linux..

          So and how would you include that? Well you could upload it to dropbox or so and have users compile kernels....

          I've waited several months for Rise of Tomb Raider. I guess I'll start playing in Wine in the next days.

            I came here to exactly say that. Maybe Feral should survey existing paying customers of what ports the users are interested in before they commit?
