No thanks; i rather send my monys to Steam because they have a native Linux client and support Linux in other ways too. Epig (typed correctly) and GOG are out of the question for me until they support Linux in a sound way. Yes.

GOG has Linux games, just not a Linux client. And the vast majority of Steam games rely on Proton (Valve's Wine fork) to run, so I don't understand what you're complaining about.

Naw naw, not complaining really. This is a choice. Steam has Linux native client and Valve advances Linux gaming. Maybe GOG and Epig change next year. Steam Deck is a massive success and so on. But you do you, i do me. Peace

What's better, a forced client as a form of DRM or (playing a free game with) no client?

That's the point: i like to pay Valve and Steam even 3 times for same shit, just because they TRULY advance Linux gaming. I do understand though, that this is kind of an alternative way. I don't want to "support" Epig nor GOG in any way, until they start to support Linux as first class citizen.

I would say that outside of Steam, then GOG and itch.io are fine as alternatives for offering DRM-free games w/ Linux ports. I would not compare GOG to Epic Games at all. I understand where you're coming from, but GOG at least has something going for it. It's not just another Origin/EA App, Ubisoft Connect, etc.

Linux marketshare has always been significantly lower that Windows and Mac, and since there's not that many Linux native games, it doesn't make sense for GOG to put resources towards a Linux client. Also the client actually functions as DRM for several games too, so pretty much no one would use it.

Epic on the other hand, IS actively toxic to Linux as a whole. They made a Wine/Proton compatible anti-cheat, but since Tim Sweeney effectively said he has no faith in it, not many devs use it. But in the case of Fall Guys, they attempted to enable it, but it was removed when they were bought out and made Epic exclusive.

Nah, I'm just extremely dense.

You're joking, right? You are explicitly going into a GOG exclusive news just to whine. You don't contribute one bit to a constructive discussion.

Do as you say & just stay away from, to you, irrelevant information, nobody cares about your opinion!

It's always great to see, how "open" the gaming community is.
