Linux stores/platforms should use and/or to package games instead of their own custom script solutions.

That would allow
* specifying custom Wine builds
* pinning dependency versions
* trivially maintaining and applying patches
* creating wrappers and setup scripts
* atomic upgrades with rollback
* explicit and reproducible dependency resolution
* maintaining your own easily shareable repos with custom packages and overrides
* a platform/frontend-agnostic packaging solution (no need to use any particular GUI - can just manage your games with Nix/Guix directly)

It would also contribute to the declarative package management revolution.

Just look at this list: alternativeto.net/software/lut - wouldn't it be great if those could all use the same packaging format and use/extend a common upstream repo?

Guix is ahead of Nix in this: gitlab.com/guix-gaming-channel
