Pretty much the go-to for PC games in general, and there is Linux support available for the games in the form of Proton, so if you're moving from Windows to using Linux for the first time (like me) then you won't be hurting to revert for a while.

proton support is pretty good for non supported games but it is proprietary but they are increasing linux support with proton and steamos so i can play almost everygame on my library and all i care about i can play

Steam is amazing if you want to play PC games. Do not believe the posts that say all the ‘good’ games fail to launch. Almost my entire library of Steam-Windows-PC library works in Linux. However, the games did fail to launch for me using the Noveau drivers for Linux. I have to use the Nvidai proprietary driver. Also, I tried the flatpack version and the games failed to launch for me there. But a normal install using the proprietary drivers is darn good. Though, some games will need tweaking, check for hints. Finally, I run the Linux Mint Edge build and you may want to try that for better game and peripheral compatibility.

Don't waste your time. All the good games fail to launch. The only games that work are primitive text and picture based games. Steam offers zero support. What a waste of time.

The best game platform on Linux, too bad that it's proprietary software.

Ha PC gaming akkor Steam. Nagyon jó, hogy a valve és a Steam ezen felül támogatja is a Linux gaminget, ez pl. abban nyilvánul meg hogy lehet Linux-kompatibilis játékokra szűrni. Nem kell ide a Wine :). Ezek a játékok nekem mindíg gond nélkül működtek.

Disk write error. i'm pretty sure is not a problem of my SSD , it's brand new. If I uninstall steam and then i install it again, the problem is solved but it returns like a few weeks later.

In Linux Mint 20 works just fine. Same as Windows version plus Steam Play. With adequate computer hardware graphics performance in games is the same as in Windows. Do not blame Steam about missing visual features in games which is not implemented in Linux yet - like HDR.

Depending on how you plan to use steam, it can be fantastic. If you plan to dedicate endless hours towards bug reporting and solving (so the devs can then take credit) then THIS APP IS PERFECT FOR YOU. If, however you are expecting a commercial quality user experience, well... maybe just wait a bit longer. Above all, this app is outstanding if you want to expand your troubleshooting skills on linux.

Seems to be working fine except no support for skins apparently. Going to try the community flathub version instead.

Ahora que me pase a linux, creo que es una buena plataforma gaming en este sistema operativo, ademas de que van ampliando el catalogo de compatibilidad, es una herramienta indispensable para mi :v

Bisher der beste Client für Linux-User. Steam kümmert sich immerhin um die Pinguin-Freunde, damit die auch ordentlich Spielen könne. Leider fehlt es weiterhin an AAA-Titeln und zeitweise an Hardwareunterstützung. Der Client läuft aber gut auf Linux Mint 19.3.
