From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word "Linux" in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.

The only game I have ever played is FIFA on a PS4. Now I have a gaming laptop but have no idea how I should go about playing games on Linux. Appreciate your help in advance!

Thats a very bad recommendation for a first time gamer.

The game tries to be very immersve so there are nearly no tooltips and no ingame written tutorialization.

That means you have to be very game literate (know a lot of gaming specific tropes and conventions to understans whats toing on and what to do).

I watched a very experienced gamer friend attempt the game after I played it, and the stereotypes from other games actually seemed to do harm. I think it also depends on your patience and problem solving approach.
