Is Proton/SteamPlay on Linux marking the decline of Native Ports? We answer with data at hand: https://boilingsteam.com/proton-the-native-port-killer/ #linux #linuxgaming #proton #steamplay
@boilingsteam I would rather be able to play games on Linux than worry about if they are native.
Epic took away Rocket League which was "native" so clearly native doesn't mean much.
Epic and non-compatible anti-cheats are the primary factor in preventing games on linux. It's much easier to get a developer to skip a library to make their game be fully linux capable than tell them they need to make a full second port.
@nbisby Rocket League actually stopped being native even before Epic took it away on their store (Psyonix dropped Mac/Linux support in early 2020). Otherwise agree with your sentiment, from a dev standpoint, Proton makes things a lot easier to serve more customers.
