Suggestions for resources to find free/libre #games for #linux ?

Usually I just rely on the package manager to check out/try out games, but one of the main things it lacks is screenshots.

Here are a few websites I found as resources:

https://www.gamingonlinux.com/free-games/

http://savannah.gnu.org/

https://libregamewiki.org/GPL_games

It would also be nice if there was a reliable place where libre games have "ratings" so I can decide wether a game is even worth downloading.

I've been using #CrossOver for #Mac years. It basically killed native #macOS #games market when it became good enough.


trying to make people more aware of this discovery.
People found higher quality versions of the infamous Mario Head clips from Mario Teaches Typing. They apparently are part of a Mac OS port released in 1995

finally fixed the last issue i had with source engine on my PC, which means, 100% of my PC upgrade is now complete, as this was the last concern i had to address with everything PC-related. it only took since mid-December.
very pleased I finally can just enjoy the computer.

holy shit wow i can move physics objects around in portal 2 without them being a stuttery mess now: https://youtu.be/McmJL8rRYn4

*i still need to buy an actually decent screen recorder for Windows

CSGO/technical help request:
csgo is the only game i'm having performance issues with, now, but, i'm stuck on something

sooo.. fixing csgo because it is the literal only game i thought to test that had issues (this is a very good sign that only 1 of all of them had concerns), i fixed my loss and choke by setting my rates correctly for the download speed of my internet connection, they basically already were, just a bit lower, so now i've allowed slightly more but not too much, and now it's perfect

the actual issue is var (the one on the left, next to the fps) spiking upwards, and not being immensely consistent sometimes, so, i need to figure out what that one is, and then figure out how to keep it low, stable, and not spiking.

then i'll stop having random stuttering/hitching microfreezes while playing csgo
do you have any ideas?
sometimes it goes up to like 10ms, and that causes a lag spike

A retro game scene is the main image with a hooded faceless character reaching for a glowing feather while being chased by an angry skeleton. They look like they're climbing a castle wall. There is also an ominous looking red bat in the mix.

Would you do me a favour and like+favourite my Steam guide? Its aim is to help those who struggle to get a consistently decent FPS in GTA V have a better experience due to increased framerate stability.
Hopefully it helps you, too, if you need it!

recommended reading & food for thought:
β€œI tried to find a way to preserve code for 69 years (this is not a joke)”
https://museumofscreens.wordpress.com/2022/12/09/how-to-preserve-code-for-69-years-this-is-not-a-joke/
it starts with this seemingly simple premise (let’s make a digital time capsule! yay!) but quickly falls down a confusing hole of data decay, the sad impermanent nature of digital work, and how preservation of digital art seems impossible currently.

Linode has shut down the primary server of itch.io, one of the biggest platforms for small and indie game hosting, and as of yestereve, its founder Leaf was still waiting on a response from Linode:

https://twitter.com/moonscript/status/1593055417126752257?s=20&t=6_Vh-rhh_2Ne65aHHM6zpQ

I just checked and my itch.io page is still up (https://gersande.itch.io β€” publicly very little is visible today but I have a *lot* of private and hidden projects archived there I would be very sad to lose) but if you use itch.io to host anything and your page/account are still connected, might be worth taking some extra backups today.

As someone who games for entertainment, I found the obvious bias in this research survey to be a bit galling, but feel free to respond and show that games are no different from a lot of forms of entertainment.
