What distro is good for beginners?

Hello. I'm new to the Linux world. I'm coming from Windows and my primary need is gaming. But my biggest issue is that I can't stop distrohopping. I've tried a bunch of distros but can't decide which one to settle with. Can you help me?

As I have said before, and will no doubt say again, the "best" distro is the one YOU like and the one which suits YOUR computer.

People can, and will tell you to use XYZ Linux. They are fanboiz. That is what THEY use and which suits THEIR computer. You may or may not agree, You don't want to be pushed into something by somebody else because it is "best" for them.

Keep looking. Keep searching. There is no rush. Eventually, you will find the "best" for you.
