Yes, Mint XFCE will play native Linux games available through Steam. A few of the people I work with are on Mint XFCE and haven't had any trouble with it. Using XFCE vs MATE vs Cinnamon won't have any impact on installing Steam.does Mint XFCE still play native linux games? Like a lot of games I buy on steam or GoG now say they support Linux, can I play them on that version of Linux? Or would I need a more full version of Linux like Cinnamon to play those games? Also, how hard is it to install Steam on something like XFCE, do I have to learn command line prompts or do I just go to firefox, click download steam for linux, and double click whatever downloads?
Sorry I sound like a monkey, but I'm just a gamer not an advanced user.
Side note: XFCE is a really nice, lightweight DE. I use it partnered w/Slim in Gentoo.
