    Graphics drivers are fine in my experience (once upon a time they used to be difficult), Nvidia like Easy says have good Linux drivers. There is no problem with UI, if they implement Steam or Origin it will look the same on every distro. The problem isnt linux distros being different its that hardly any developers make games natively in OpenGL, they all use Direct3D (DirectX). Even i guess EA will make shite ports of its games and Valve will do Mac ports too.
