So what I want to do with this thread is highlight games that play on Linux with either native support, or games that play through proton with minimal configuration. IE, no having to deal with protontricks, winetricks, etc and that nonsense. At most, I will be using a proton-GE. With the Steam Deck on its way, Something like this will be helpful to fellow gamers in the community beyond throwing them at protondb (which is great resource). I am going for an OOTB experience as much as possible or with minimal configuration as possible.] So please, totally feel free to add your folks games you have tried and work on the first try!
So the first game up that I recently got was Tales of Arise. Max settings, 1080p, rtx 3050ti. This game came out on September 10, 2021, this game worked OOTB on launch day! 0 configuration needed
