If you want to risk a second look, check out Linux Mint, too. It's basically Ubuntu's core with a different GUI and proprietary stuff (like the manufacturer's graphics card drivers) delivered with it, which you manually need to enable for Ubuntu.
When it comes to games, check out wine. It's not too hard to get most games to run on linux with it's help.
Of course, it's still a choice and everyone should use what they like ;)
