I haven't actually played any of those. But I can recommend at least something in that direction.

For GTA, there's its sillier cousin Saints Row. 2,3 and 4 have native Linux ports. If I remember correctly, port quality improved on each installment and games also get sillier and sillier. Second one is still kind of serious. I have no idea how well the ports still work, but I guess there's always Proton.

For Resident Evil, Steam suggested Dying Light. It's basically zombie game with parkour and especially at the beginning, parkour is the best option. And after you have gotten used to daytime, nighttime has even more horrors.

Also while there are guns, they attract way too much attention, some it's more melee focused game.

Dying Light 2 has also been out for a while, though for that you need to use Proton.

If Dying Light is too expensive for some reason, there's Dead Island from same developer. Might not be as fun after you have played Dying Light though.

As for the MMORPG:s, there are many native ones. Though for the native games, they are on the less popular side as a whole. As I don't play MMORPGS, I don't know how many of them work with Proton. Steam Deck support was unsupported for the few trending ones, but protondb might could disagree.

For Linux, there is the MMORPG Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues. I haven't played it in a while but I recall performance was quite good.

The three Dragon Age games work excellently through Proton, though DAO and DAII need a little tinkering at first.

My other choices of games may not be up your street, but I hope this helps
