By - | Views: 16,551
It's that time of the month again Linux gamers! The new GOL survey for October is now available, so please make sure to fill it in if you have the time.

The results of the previous (September) survey will be published in the next few days. Thanks to those who filled that one out! There were a few changes, so it will be interesting to see the results.

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

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.

Thanks for the new survey.

The most important factor for me (and probably many others) would be ratings and reviews, which aren't listed.

Thanks! :)

Isn't there a way to add multiple radio buttons to an input thing?
So you could have done that last question as a 1 to 5 scale of importance?

Anyway, looking forward to seeing September's results.

I added it now. Haven't had many responses yet and it seems like too important an option to miss out :)

Basically only on a question-by-question basis can you do this (Ie each of the answers would have to be its own question). I was thinking the exact same thing when putting in the question, it would be super useful but alas no :(

I guess most important factor would be fun/interesting gameplay mechanics. But maybe that's a given.

Long time Windows user here, I definitely switched to Linux (Mint for the moment). So happy with it!

My previous tries did not match my requirements before, but now it's the good one!

Just sayin' I filled in the survey for once ^_^

Good that reviews are in now, as that is what I base my wishlist on.
The actual buy however depends on the availability outside steam, which was not selectable ;)

QuoteDid you use a Windows partition for gaming last month?
What have i to answer if i have a virtual machine with Windows on it and i use it for casual gaming?

I didn't answer the final question because none of the responses fit for me. Really, that's an almost impossible question for me to answer because what appeals to me changes on a case by case basis. Sometimes I buy as game because of the genre it's in, sometimes the aesthetic appeals to me, sometimes the reputation of the developer influences me, it's different every time and I can't predict it.

For example, right now I have a terrible urge to play a racing game, I want to play a racing game really badly, so the first racing game to come out, whether it's Project CARS or GRID: Autosport, I will almost certainly buy it, once I know it's not a buggy mess.

To be clear, I think it's a good question, I just couldn't answer it. For me, the heart wants what the heart wants, it's kind of different every time.
