What games keep you dualbooting?
OZSeaford commented on 10 February 2015 at 12:51 pm UTC

I still dual boot for:
Any Besthesda games
Tombraider

I also do most of my multiplayer with an IRL friend, ans whilst I have now a growing cross platform list of games, I still have to go back to the windows partition for:
Ages of Empire HD
Seven Kingdoms HD
A few multiplayer indies ie.

I saw that there was a mention of running these games under wine.

Is there a guide for having both the normal Linux Steam client, and then another client running under WINE? I saw this project - https://github.com/sirnuke/steambridge but it seems that you run the risk of being banned on VAC games, and for me, VAC is an absolute necessity, I hate cheaters...
Basically, won't having steam under WINE and then also Linux as well be conflicting?

I just used PlayOnLinux to install the Windows Steam client. Admittedly that's not as elegant a solution as bridging them but probably runs less risk of getting banned from anything! I don't often have both the Linux and Windows clients running at the same time though.

Brilliant, it's that simple?

I will give it a try tonight. I stopped mid-Skyrim just because I was tired of rebooting...

Skyrim you say? This may be of interest to you then:

Thanks, I can't believe you are making me go back into WINE!

I used it quite a lot 4 years ago, looking forward to seeing all the improvements that they have implemented. But it should limit my number of reboots into Windows.

Hate to say it but,

Battlefield 4
Star citizen.

That's the only things I use windows for.

All bar 3 games in steam now have a linux native version

Win 7 basic, without antivir or any other soft for play Guild Wars 2, Gauntlet, State of Decay and Insurgency...
