Reddit: Linux Distros & Video Game Compatibility

Wednesday 5th of April 2017 12:51:16 PM

Hi /r/linux!

A quick questions about video game compatibility with Linux. When a game says that it is able to run on the Linux OS, does it mean only on a specific distro (i.e. Ubuntu) of Linux?

I ask because I was browsing through GOG and saw that a game had Linux support but mentioned versions of Ubuntu only.
