So, Valve just made gaming on Linux a whole lot easier.
They took Wine, fixed a couple of things, made it integrate into their steam client natively and released it as open source.
@deegge I tried it yesterday by buying The Last Remnant, which is one of the games on the supported list.
Emulation works most of the time, with a single crash during a few hours of gameplay.
The game itself, however, is not fantastic. I'll play for a bit longer before deciding if it's worth my attention.
@loke it must disagree with my eGPU set-up, I guess--16 lanes pushed through 1 via the ExpressCard slot. Though I was able to run it fine on Windows.
@loke Going to give Battlefront 2 a try with Proton. Though I'm assuming it'll run great given its age. There's a setting to run everything on Proton. Might be fun to see how Witcher 3 does.
