A little about me
I discovered Linux in 1994 and was a dedicated user by 1996. Windows games were appealing but Windows 95 stability was a complete turned off. By the time XP came out, it was too late for me to consider switching. The first game that worked for me on Wine was Steel Panthers: World at War in 2004. From 2013 to 2016, I played iRacing on Wine but stopped because of the high cost and Wine's poor support for 64bit and DX11 at the time. I discovered the Close Combat series recently (only 20 years late!) which work very well on Wine. Steam on Linux is fantastic, but so few of the games appeal to me, unfortunately.
