About the Gaming 🎮 category

(Replace this first paragraph with a brief description of your new category. This guidance will appear in the category selection area, so try to keep it below 200 characters.)

Use the following paragraphs for a longer description, or to establish category guidelines or rules:

  • Why should people use this category? What is it for?

  • How exactly is this different than the other categories we already have?

  • What should topics in this category generally contain?

  • Do we need this category? Can we merge with another category, or subcategory?

I’ll go ahead and reveal my ignorance. I keep a W11 box on my desk. The only programs on it are Steam, EA, and Battlegate something or other (for running Escape from Tarkov). There are a few MS programs that came along in the box–email, store, etc–but the computer is strictly a console. It’s just for gaming.

I can’t figure out how to run any modern games or any that aren’t made for children using Linux. I haven’t found any simple, logical articles that explain how to use Steam or something called Lutris.

Therefore, keep the Gaming category and I’ll keep watching for help. And now I’ll ask: can anyone tell me the how-to on Linux gaming? Distros, programs (Wine, maybe), where to start?
