Are you tired of having your GPU driver being updated without your permission? Do you hate adjusting lots of system settings to disable OS (operating system) features that interfere with usage of your PC? Are you fed up with having to deal with mandatory system updates when restarting your PC? If you are an avid PC gamer, chances are you are using Windows 10 and you probably have experienced (or still experiencing) the annoying situations just mentioned. There is no denying that some of the most-played games today such as PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, Rainbow Six Siege, and Warframe are only available on Windows. You can use Linux for gaming but that means not being able to play some games. It is just a matter of deciding whether being able to play “popular” games is more important than being able to use an OS wherein you are in control.
If you are the type of PC gamer who is not tied to game franchises, we have a good news for you. Ditching Windows 10 does not mean giving up PC gaming. There are many developers who make their games like judi online available on Linux and Windows but people are just not aware that they have a choice. Partly to blame for the ignorance are some of the online publications. Try searching for “F1 2017 Vulkan” and “Rise of the Tomb Raider Vulkan” in Google and you won’t find anything from popular online publications such as Eurogamer, PC Gamer, and Tech Spot. To make transitioning to Linux gaming easier for our fellow PC gamers, we made a list of game developers who have a history of consistently releasing games with Linux support. Start building your library of cross-platform PC games so you can gradually switch from Windows to Linux. This list is not yet final and we will continue to update it as more games become available on Linux.

Some game developers make excuses like “we’re a small company” or “Linux has a small market share” when asked why their game is not available on Linux. Here are some of the start-up game development companies whose 1st game had a simultaneous release on Linux and Windows.
As honorable mention, here are the start-up game development companies whose 1st game was initially released only for Windows but was later brought to Linux in less than 6 months after the initial release.
To prove that Linux really works for gaming and that we just don’t write articles about playing games on Linux, we make Linux game play videos using a GeForce GTX 970 4GB and a Radeon RX 480 8GB. The videos shown below are some of our work and you can find the rest on our YouTube channel.
