Join us on our own very special Reddit: /r/Linuxers

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:

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:

A few more, mostly non-gaming. I'm mentioning these for the general purposes, things like BASH and coding can be very useful to the GoL audience even though they might not be directly gaming related.

DevOps, coding, guides, tips & tricks, things like that. Not super active uploader.
Youtube Description:
Spoiler, click me
Linux and Unix tutorial videos, ranging from basic Linux shell commands for beginners to videos plumbing the depths of the /proc filesystem, OS-virtualization, network security, and other topics for the aspiring professional System Administrator.

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.

Looks at lots of different things, newcomer tips, distro tests, software tests, live streams, some games. An older gentleman, calm and relaxed. Really likes puppylinux.

Honestly not surprised Egee and The Linux Experiment made the list. They have some of the better content out there (especially the former with Distro Delves which is, Imo the best Linux distro review series)

Alright, i wanted to make a list for the french gamers...

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".

Tyler's Tech is also worth looking into.

Dude reviews distros on real hardware and also focuses on the gaming aspect.

You mean "they are not targeting Linux" right?
