At GOL we're big fans of community building and so sometimes it's good to give a shout out to others doing fantastic work for Linux gaming. Consider this your: "beginners guide to watching more Linux and gaming content across your favourite places".
Before getting into it, just a reminder that we are on both YouTube and Twitch - so be sure to click on those buttons to like, subscribe
and give over your firstborn.
Every single one included in our lists below creates their content on Linux, so you should feel right at home if you're both new and old to the Linux community. Not all the channels cover just gaming so keep that in mind, we're just listing what we think do interesting work.
Here's a small curated list of YouTube channels worth following:
- Linux For Everyone
- Make It Linux
- Very new, but their focus on high quality marketing for Linux gaming is interesting.
- The Linux Experiment
- Intelligent Gaming
- TLG (formely The Linux Gamer)
- Chris Titus Tech
As for Twitch, for those of you who like to be part of something as it's happening here's a few good channels to watch as well:
Feel free to share others in the comments, articles like this are a good time to share some knowledge around and help others find something they might be missing.
A few links:
- leillo1975 youtube channel with lots of videos about Simracing
- Peka youtube channel with gaming and other stuff
- LordGault youtube channel also with linux gaming content

tutoriaLinux 137k subs, 180 vids
DevOps, coding, guides, tips & tricks, things like that. Not super active uploader.
Spoiler, click me
I started making these videos for a friend who was trying to learn the skills he needed to be a Linux sysadmin. Since then, I've expanded to cover even more topics, tools, theory, practical projects, and career advice.
I try to have a balanced mix of theory and practice, because neither extreme -- extreme theory and extreme practicality -- is useful:
- it's useless to know a bunch of commands without understanding the system underneath, and
- it's also useless to understand how everything works theoretically while being unable to apply any of that knowledge to solve real problems.

I just noticed that i am the only one i know about with a channel for Linux games, in french. The ones on my list are all in english, i just checked. I am tiny, 500+ subs.
There are others in french, focused on Linux, but they do tuto, how to install Linux, Linux specific games like SuperTux...
Not simply "playing on Linux" in a large scale, like any other generic games channel. We do have several "indi games" channel in french, but they are NOT targeting Linux, just "indi games".

You mean "they are not targeting Linux" right?
If you speak spanish and you have problems with gaming or streaming in GNU/Linux, maybe I can help you.
My Twitch channel is on my profile.
