Anyone got a GNU/Linux OS to recommend for gaming?

Right now, I'm playing with (Live USB) Linux Mint, Lubuntu, and AntiX. Out of the box, wine only works on Mint. I favor very light desktops; dwm looks very good to me.

From what I've seen, all distros seem to work. Obviously Steam OS if you're aiming for steam games. But there are distros that deal with free games pre-installed and so on. I personally like debian as a starting point for a system.

I guess the question is whether you are looking for an out of the box solution or to get in the nooks and crannies. I know 3vi1 was big on gaming on linux and I believe he just cruised along on Ubuntu for all his needs.
