For a long time, one of the main reasons Linux was not popular compared to Windows was the lack of supported games and the difficulty of playing them, but that’s long gone. Nowadays, there are a number of Linux distributions specifically designed for games, and Ubuntu GamePack is one of the best. It has ensured the smooth running of 85,842+ games, which can be developed for Linux, Windows, MS-DOS, and various video game consoles.

Ubuntu GamePack is a complete Linux distribution based on Ubuntu, developed by UALinux from Ukraine. Unlike SteamOS, in addition to Steam, it also comes with the Lutris gaming platform to allow you access to the specific gaming services the distributor provides; includes Sparky APTus Gamer to allow access to numerous game console emulators; installs Wine, PlayOnLinux (a graphical frontend for Wine) and CrossOver to install and play Windows-based games; uses DOSBox and DOSEMU to run the DOS games; and integrates Java and Adobe Flash Player for playing online games via web browsers.

As an optimized edition of Ubuntu designed specifically for gamers, Ubuntu GamePack makes playing games on Linux much easier. By default, the look and feel of the Windows 10 user interface is provided, so it is very easy to use. In addition, it provides a large number of environment configurations required by all kinds of games, provides powerful hardware driver support by default, while places relatively low hardware requirements on its own system. Even better, it also offers a game optimization tool, GameMode, which can adjust Linux settings to improve game performance.
