New Linux Gaming Survey For July

By - | Views: 12,961
It's that time of the month again Linux gamers! The new GOL survey for July is now available, so please make sure to fill it in if you have the time. We had a lower number of respondents last month, and it would be great to keep the number above 1000.

The results of the previous (June) survey will be published in the next few days. Thanks to those who filled that one out!

You can find the link for the new survey here, and please share with other Linux gamers if you can! Article taken from

About the author -
After many years of floating through space on the back of a missile, following a successful career in beating people up for not playing Sega Saturn, the missile returned to earth. Upon returning, I discovered to my dismay that the once great console had been discontinued and Sega had abandoned the fight to dominate the world through 32-bit graphical capabilities.

After spending some years breaking breeze blocks with my head for money and being mocked by strangers, I have found a new purpose: to beat up people for not playing on Linux.

Yeah, that was never there to begin with but at one point sort of appeared without me realising for a while. Got rid of it now, figured it might influence results, but also gives people less incentive to look at the results with all the fancy graphs and stuff here ;)

Good idea about including GOG. I personally cannot wait for the client to come out. I can't think of why it means so much, but I just love having a dedicated client and can't wait to get the native version.

Survey still assumes that Intel is the only integrated graphics provider :(

Yup... I feel like an idiot, I had been meaning to do that but the new survey coincided with some terrible computer problems and I forgot in all the stress. I'll try and remember next month.

While I can understand the need to broaden the applicability of the answers, having the (nearly) tacked on to to the pertinent answer on the GOG Galaxy question does mean it will water down the amount of actual DRM Free purists that are reported.

Here is a tip: prep it now / make one now with the changed questions. If you are anything like me you will forget ;).

I like being able to look at the answers right after having completed the survey; if that’s gone it’s too bad (I haven’t filled the survey yet).

On the topic of survey results… I’m always a bit confused because the results for the previous month are published after the new survey… What about publishing the results before instead, even only 2 weeks after the survey is posted? That’s still plenty of time for people to notice it’s here and answer it, and the results would be outdated by only 2 weeks instead of one month :P.

Edit: about the unique question, well, it’s hard to say since it will depend very much on which games GOG will be selling and the quality of the Galaxy client. So I answered "Probably no real change", because at the moment GOG has very few interesting Linux games for me.
Done! :-)

Also, hi all! My 1st post.

Since I'm Brazilian and has no national payment methods, I had to choose "No, I'm happy buying games from Steam, et al." on the last question, it would be awesome if you guys added a "No, is not available in my territory." I know not being able to pay with a national card and not being available are two very different issues, but not buying from because you're happy with Steam and not buying from them because they don't have an appropriate method are also two very different issues.
