Its fairly easy to run Windows games with Steam using Proton (AKA Steam Play) on Linux. Only games that tend to have issues consistently are the ones with anti-cheat. Before that there was Lutris, PlayOnLinux, or just plain old Wine if you needed to run Windows applications on Linux. About a decade ago I was playing Diablo 2 from Linux via Wine without issue.

Steam is a great tool when it comes to playing on Linux. And a Collabora implementation will arrive in the next versions of the kernel that promises to help with anti-cheat problems... Hopefully everything will work out!
