ubuntu worth gaming?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I love linux and the idea/look/feel. But gaming on ubuntu you need play on linux. Gaming to me on windows is steam. I want a gaming solution on ubuntu, which do i choose?

You will probably have to dual boot....wine is another option but it's not going to run well....

If gaming is of the greatest concern then dual boot. Some games can be played on Linux via wine with steam. Some games will run great others will run poorly others not at all. There are many free and pay Linux games but graphics are more vintage and nothing that really compares to new windows offerings.
