Proton is amazing, and it’s easy to lose sight of all that it can do. Here’s a few videos I picked up recently to showcase some of the latest tested games running on Linux via Proton/Steamplay, as captured in video.
Halo 2: Anniversary Edition, while we wait for Halo 4 at the end of the year in the Master Chief Collection.
Tell me Why
Horizon Zero Dawn: finally working, but apparently not very stable and still suffering from bugs.
Hades from SuperGiant (Transistor)
Destroy All Humans, the remake of the old Xbox 1 game!
rFactor 2, the other simulation that’s constantly being updated year after year
And last but not least, Jedi Fallen Order:

Thanks a lot for include my rFactor 2 video. Actually, most of the current car simulators work great with Proton
Thanks for making such videos! By the way, how is Assetto Corsa on Linux now? Apparently it seems like it’s working fine with Proton GE?
Assetto Corsa need a lot of tweaking to run, but works:
Assetto Corsa Competizione works almost out of the box (works better with proton-ge):
Nice, I did not know you made a video about that one too! Looks like it can run fine now, indeed.
In my channel you can found a lot of videos of different car games in Linux. Games like Automobilista 1 & 2, RACE 07, GTR2, F1 2017, GT Legends, Project Cars 1 & 2…
what is your favorite racing game at the moment on Linux?
ufff… a dificult cuestion. rFactor 2 has some years, but it has improved a lot, and it is the reference against which the resto of racing sims are compared. In addition, the possibility of using mods is a point in its favor Talking about a more actual game, Automobilista 2 works out of the box with a very good performance in Linux since the first day (FFB and online included), and has a unique selection of cars and circuits (they are not the typical ones you will find in the rest of the games.)

If you want to enjoy this serious car racing games, you will need a wheel. The better support in Linux for this kind of devices is for the Logitech Wheels, and the best wheel of this brand you can use is G29 (920 has a basic driver, and the new G923 I think that don’t have support). You also can buy a second hand G27 that is a great wheel. The best driver for Logitech wheels is this module: https://github.com/berarma/new-lg4ff You can configure this wheels in Linux with Oversteer (https://github.com/berarma/oversteer) or PyLinuxWheel (https://gitlab.com/OdinTdh/pyLinuxWheel) Another models like Thrustmaster t150 and t300… Read more »
