What games do you want ported to Linux? Feral Interactive want to know again

Posted by , | Views: 30,061

Feral Interactive are wanting to know what games you want ported to Linux, hopefully taking your requests into real consideration.

See their Tweet below:

They also asked on Facebook and Reddit.

It will be interesting to see if any of the user requests actually get ported. I am always sceptical of things like this, as it's essentially a hype machine for Feral and it doesn't necessarily mean anything will get ported as a result of requests there. Just keep that in mind when wildly requesting ports. Even so, it's a bit of fun and I am excited to see what Feral bring out over the rest of the year and beyond.

I've seen people constantly ask Feral about porting BioShock Remastered to Linux previous to this, but each request is met with the usual "we have nothing to share" type of reply. Considering it's a popular pick, I hope they look into that one. I would certainly appreciate BioShock Remastered on Linux!

So far it seems Doom, Bioshock and The Witcher 3 are popular choices.

What would you like to see?

Would have written this up four hours ago when I replied to their tweet, but updating some of the site code seemed to make time vanish!

I keep forgetting I have an account now, so I can join in the fun...

Witcher 3
Fallout 4
Elite: Dangerous (Seriously, the original has been unshakeable from the top of my “greatest games of all time” list since 1984. I am absolutely front and centre of their core market. But... no Linux version, no sale.)
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Dishonored 2
Assetto Corsa

GTAV and Skyrim would be nice if they helped people switch to Linux, but I've already played them to death on the Xbox 360. (Hmm. Modding, though... )

Lawbreakers
Prey
DOOM 2016
Dishonored 1,2
Blizzard games

There's quite a few issues for Feral and monetizing a game port. One issue is the fact that there's a lot of Linux games out there already. So, whatever money Feral make is limited by that fact. Linux gamers spread their (finite) cash around what is available ( "lots" ).

Certainly, in my case, I pick up games that appeal to me that are released on Linux. But if a particular one that I like is not available (e.g. Witcher 3), then I spend my cash on another (Linux) game instead. There is so much out on Linux to keep me entertained. It'll be years before I finish playing what is in my collection already, not to mention titles which are highly replayable.

I've dropped over 150 hours into FTL and 280 hours into 7 Days To Die for instance, heh. Mad Max ~ about 80 hours, Dying Light ~ about 130 hours, Serious Sam 3 ~ about 70 hours.

I'd say:
  • No Man's Sky
  • Obduction
  • The Witness
  • Space Engineers
  • Any Settlers game
  • Any of the Star Wars Battlefront

g000h wish I was you, being able to be entertained so easily for endless hours would be amazing, sadly most games tend to be quite MEH after a few hours at a time. I only keep playing Skyrim because of mods, but have only beat the game once in a rush.

The most time I have probably spend on a game that is not Multiplayer would be Witcher3, it just takes quite a while to finish the base game (have not even got into DLC because low FPS at 4k, waiting on upgrade).

FF7 Remake, and other Square Enix titles since they are already working together. Some more of the back catalog would be nice. That seems like the most realistic request.

Things like Fallout and Elder Scrolls seem unrealistic, since that would mean having some sort of deal with Bethesda. In business terms though, It makes sense to do more deals with developers and publishers like they have going with Square. Who knows, some day Feral could strike deals with Rockstar or Bethesda to port future titles to Linux and OSX.

To be honest, I don't get why more companies don't do those kinds of deals. It means their products get onto more platforms, and Feral takes care of the work.

I think many companies are just afraid of getting a bad reputation if the port gets released wonky like many often do. But for the most part issues get resolved in due time, helps allot that MESA is actually making progress also.
