Top 5 Linux Games of 2015

478 ratings | 68414 views
2015 has come to an end, and what better way to say good bye than to list out some of the top Linux games of the year. This video was fully recorded, edited, composited and produced on Ubuntu 15.10 64bit. All gameplay footage is obtained through running the games natively on Ubuntu. If you're wondering how these titles were chosen, here is the list of criteria: 1. A brand new game released in 2015 2. Supports and runs on Linux and SteamOS 3. Big hitters (either in terms of sales/brand/gamer ownership) 4. Fully released, not in Early-Access The list was diversified as much as possible to ensure that different genres were captured, so that you may explore titles/experiences you may not have before. This list is not exhaustive. Instead, it highlights the titles that support Linux and made gamers around the world rejoice upon their release with gameplay that captivated the world whilst pushing the boundaries of graphics capabilties, gameplay and high level production. These are also titles that were released in 2015, and not older. Games shown in the intro: GRID Autosport Magicka 2 Saints Row IV Total War Attila My source for the playerbase numbers on steam: http://steamspy.com/year/2015 My source for Dying Light sales figures: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/dying-light-sells-5-million-copies-dev-teases-ambi/1100-6429732/ My source for Cities : Skylines sales figures: https://www.vg247.com/2015/09/04/steam-stats-gta-5-cities-skylines/ Background song is Alan Walker - Fade [NCS Release] provided by NoCopyrightSounds.

LINUX SHOULD BE #1 GAMING PLATFORM (AND WILL BE) , because it has a better and beautifull UI than all others OS (in my oppinion) . I was a Windows user since 2005 but in my oppinion Linux is now my #1 OS.

There are some pretty great 100% free to play games on Steam/Linux. Episode One of "Life is Strange", DOTA 2, Team Fortress 2, Unturned, Moirai, Iron Snout, come quickly to mind. Once you buy Half-Life 2 for like 10 bucks, you can get quite a few free mods for it... And games frequently go on sale for next to nothing. I've bought a bunch of fun games for like 99 cents or 2 or 3 bucks.
Justin Merithew (2 years ago)
Steam is free, you just purchase the games, or are you looking for 100% free games on Linux?

Excellent content, but you need definitely more caffeine ! 45 seconds to get to the point it's a little too much, but still, thumb up for this video.

What did you use to edit this video? Everything I've found seems to crash no matter what I do - I can't find a good alternative for Sony Vegas

hey Penguin Recordings does the steam user count your bringing up on the games total Steam Linux users for the games or just Steam users in general? also great video!
corey drew bruce (2 years ago)
+Penguin Recordings ah yeah thought so and yeah it would be cool, your welcome :)
Penguin Recordings (2 years ago)
+corey drew bruce It's for all Steam users in general. It would be cool to isolate it further, but currently there doesn't seem to be a way to get that information from Valve's servers. Thank you for the complement :)

Hello friend, how to install a functional way the fraps to see the FPS in games? and if the fraps not work, what other program to see the fps on the screen and how to install it the easy way? Is there a better way for us to keep in touch than youtube, like Skype?
Penguin Recordings (2 years ago)
+Diego Bernardes Yes, I believe they may be shifting their business focus back to consoles-only, just like in the past. It's a bit troubling, since WB Games has some really fun and popular game IPs available on the market. I hope they reconsider.
Diego Bernardes (2 years ago)
+Penguin Recordings Hello partner, I was doing some research on some games when I found out warner, not only canceled the batman port, and also ended updates for mortal kombat 10 pc, becoming active only in the desktop consoles, I think is not guilty linux does not support the game, but lack of desire of the warner distributor
Penguin Recordings (2 years ago)
+Diego Bernardes I wish I did, but just like everyone else, Vulkan's release date is still very much a secret.
Diego Bernardes (2 years ago)
Yep... Sadly it's true, and do you know something abot the e.t.a. of vulkan?
Penguin Recordings (2 years ago)
+Diego Bernardes Yes, I saw the news just yesterday. It's very sad, I was really looking forward to it. I had no idea Warner Brothers would make such a decision. Now all of us who pre-purchased it have to get a refund.

2016 is shaping up to be an awesome year! In another week we get Xcom 2!! Keep up the great videos!

Not a fan of how you ordered it. Really you made a video of most significant Linux games of 2015. Dying Light may be a big triple A title on the list, but it's performance is horrendous. Cities Skyline isn't wonderful either. DiRT Showdown is a significant title that performs very well on the platform.
Penguin Recordings (2 years ago)
+Joshua Miller Dirt Showdown is not a 2015 title however. These are all titles that were new to the world in 2015 as I mentioned in the description, under criteria. Most significant Linux games of 2015 is what I was aiming for :)
Arhum Ahmad (2 years ago)
Why pick Gat Outta Hell instead of Saints Row 4?
Penguin Recordings (2 years ago)
+Arhum Ahmad Due to the release date. Gat Outta Hell was new to the world in 2015, SRIV was new to the world in 2013 :)

afaik dying light is the only 2015 AAA game released for linux, all the others AAA games were from 2014 and most of them ported by third companies, I hope this situation will somehow improve this year, more companies should release their linux ports themselfs. Btw, even if you took feedback from other people about this in the past, there is nothing bad about talking just a bit faster, it's just to find the balance.
Penguin Recordings (2 years ago)
+Rob K That is truly interesting. I hope more information on this rises. It's important to know who our allies and enemies are in the graphics API wars.
Penguin Recordings (2 years ago)
+edocamoro My apologies then, I misunderstood you. Vulkan is definitely the most interesting thing I'm awaiting in 2016. +Rob K AMD has been holding on to Mantle code? This is news to me. Have any articles or links? I'd like to read more about this, sounds pretty intriguing.
edocamoro (2 years ago)
+Penguin Recordings those on the list are from 2015, but my point was about AAA in general. it's was still a great year for linux gaming, and this year looks even more exciting with technology like vulkan on the way.
Penguin Recordings (2 years ago)
+edocamoro Every title in this list is a 2015 release only title. The single title that is from 2014 technically is D:OS. However, D:OS EE is a 2015 release and contains enough new stuff and storyline whilst being sold as a separate newer game that it should still be in the safe zone. I can't seem to nail the speech speed, either it's too slow or too fast. Hopefully I nail the right speed, I'll try and talk a little faster in future videos. I appreciate the feedback, it helps :)

Does anyone know if rust is performance-wise playable on ubuntu ?
Roi Soleil (2 years ago)
It was playable with the open radeon driver a year ago on Fedora 21 and still runs as good/bad as on Windows.
