Bioshock Fails as do most windows games
>From Lutris: " This game doesn't have a gog gameslug yet, so you'll have to manually download the installer from gog. " I have Googled and searched Gog for (Gameslug) No Answer, I have No idea what it is.
Wine is hit and miss for me, proton is missing from my best games on Lutris and some are not ready on Lutris for Gog
Only A Story about my Uncle and Outcast 1.1 work correctly 100% of the time
Linus Tech Tips claim windows games work on Linux but I do not have their resources
Also my video card is Nvidia not AMD which seems to be a Big issue
There seem to be too many issues that need to be fixed / tweaked, It would take a month to download all my games so for me windows games on Linux is not worth the work
I have switched to LMDE4 permanently  Open Arena works with no song and dance required
I may try again at a latter date
