Does anyone have any recommendations for Steam games that run well on linux naively or through proton that are fun to play?
I play lots of games, but I can't help you with free games on Steam as I havn't played any of them.
But I know a lot of strategy and RPGs games both on Steam and in the repositories.
Now this really is getting personal? What is a good game to you? Do you want RPGs, FPSs, Shooter Looter, Simulators, Third Person, Nintendo/ Sega/ Atari? Tetris and Candy Crush or the latest Zombie shooter?
Depending on your preferences, there may not be any good games, or there may be an overwhelming amount.
Does f2p mean free or fun to play?
I don't play a lot of games anymore but I really enjoy games like Rome or Civilization. Classics never die
If I remember correctly Steam has a "free to play" category on their website ..... pick one you would like to play and see if plays on Linux ..... I have about 5-6 I play but Fishing Planet is the most current I'm playing ..... it is the most realistic Fishing Simulator I have ever seen and it's free and plays on line with Linux .....
Here is just a few without knowing what your tastes are .... me .... I play lots of different games .....
Urban Terror 43
The Pirate: Caribbean Hunt
The Pirate: Plague of the Dead
Yes they are many but what type a games you wondering?
Warframe is nice many people playing that game.
I know someone from here have a list a games what working on linux.
Here is short video how many things on this a game.
for my old pc i can play the most favorite games to me without steam or wine :
1-first-person-shooter =>xonotic (appimage)
2-foot ball game=> pes2013 (appimage)
If you're into action rpg games in the vein of Diablo and Grim Dawn, Path of Exile runs perfectly through Steam (at least for me)
