Linux Gaming Central is dedicated to giving you news on the Linux gaming front.

I was a long-time editor at Boiling Steam, a web site dedicated to Linux gaming, from 2015-2022. I’ve done game reviews, hardware reviews on laptops from companies like System76 and Tuxedo Computers, voiced a few different opinions, such as whether Proton (the compatibility layer that allows Windows-based games to run on Linux) has killed native Linux gaming, covered news topics on such things as the Steam Deck, and so much more.

I also happen to be a freelance script writer for Gardiner Byrant (formerly known as The Linux Gamer), a popular YouTuber who’s been reporting on the Linux gaming scene since 2014. If he’s talked about the Steam Deck in one of his videos, chances are I wrote the script for it. Here’s an example.

Despite the name of the site, it’s not exclusively for Linux and Linux gaming. I may occassionally touch on console gaming. Like reviews on Nintendo Switch games, for example.

Linux Gaming Central was launched in March of 2022, powered by Hugo. Terminal theme by panr. Comments powered by Cactus Comments, using the Matrix protocol. Web site source code is available on GitHub and licensed under AGPLv3.
