- Steam games on linux/SteamOS: more native titles than ever and protondb making wine setup and config a one click thing.
- Windows 7 support ending, windows 10 sucks donkey balls (Cortana, offline account option now removed as well)
- Intel, AMD graphics drivers at near parity, Nvidia catching up
- Google making a game streaming service (Stadia) means they obviously plan to port games to linux, it can't work without it
- Vulkan API is going to replace both legacy OpenGL and Direct3D (easier to port, even more cross platform engines as well)
- Lutris > playonlinux, making installing top titles extremely easy.

What do you think guys, is 2020 the YEAR OF THE LINUX GAMING DESKTOP?

Didn't this happen like three, or four years ago? Also Linux is corporately controlled, Steam and games distributed there are corporately controlled non-free drm-ware, and video games as they exist are a part of the spectacle.
Video games are for kids. GNU/Linux is doing you a favour by preventing you from wasting your life on them.
Steam is not Linux and its growth does not represent anything good for Linux gaming.

no
There are tons of games that run on the Linux kernel, but they need the Android userspace.

Nerd. Now I sage.
>2020 the YEAR OF THE LINUX GAMING DESKTOP

No. As long there is windows, linux will never be a viable option
In my experience about 50% of games work without issue via Wine or Proton. I still dual boot Windows but using it less and less.

they usually have 0.1+ms extra lag that makes it uncompetitive for serious players, especially in time sensitive genres like FPS
Fight imperialism, reminder to install non-proprietary software.
