After literally years of hitting that "nothing changed this month" button, I finally have reason to update my info: my brother got me a better graphics card for Christmas (a GTX 1060 6GB compared to my old GTX 750 Ti), and since one of my four 4GB RAM modules failed I replaced it and another one with 8GB sticks. And while I was at it I bought a 2TB M.2 SSD exclusively for games since my previous 512GB SSD (which also had operating systems, /home, etc.) was getting too small. Now I'm able to install all my owned games at once again (~354GB) for the first time in quite some time, playing with a graphics card that lets me max out the graphics settings, and with the recent Steam Play update I'm playing Windows-only games in my library (from the brief time I had a Steam account before switching to Linux) that I haven't been able to enjoy in years!

LinasProton made me change my mind in the native vs. non-native game discussion. I never liked using Wine, because it was tedious. If something did not work, you'd have to mess with all sorts of DLL overrides, registry hacks, etc. If I wanted all that, I'd use Windows. But Proton made it fun again.

My two primary use cases for Proton are: 1) all the part ones that we never got on Linux: Torchlight, The Witcher, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, etc. and 2) all the games I have accumulated from buying various bundles. I still don't buy new games to play in Proton, because I think a native port is a better option. But if there comes something I really want, and it has a platinum rating on ProtonDB, I might just go for it.

Being a Linux gamer never felt so good.
I'm finding myself in a pretty similar place, actually; just a few days ago I found myself seriously tempted for the first time since switching to Linux to buy a non-Linux native game with the thought that if it doesn't work with Proton I can just get it refunded. Interesting times!
