The Assassin Creed Odyssey unsupported driver window drove me nuts. It had to be dismissed prior to loading a game otherwise you were stuck with it for that session IIRC.

I can't believe an educated Linux gamer like yourself ignores what this monument of arcade gaming is...
As a punishment, just grab a friend and a pair of decent controllers, and have the time of your life playing this shmup masterpiece.

I doubt a lot of people read Visual Novels here, but I played Atri a year ago on Proton and it worked fine, so it's kind of weird to see it listed as playable only now
