I just looked in Synaptic on my Kubuntu, and steam is packaged for installation. it should also be instalable in Ubuntu. Once you have steam installed, you will have to look for any applications to run in it.

Are you running Linux on a flash drive?

If your hard drive is broken and you are running from a flash drive there are three methods with a flash drive.
1) "Ordinary". This works like a LiveCD and when you reboot you will lose any changes you have made. I suspect this is what you have.
2) "Persistence". This is where you have an extra partition, like a Home. You can save some things but not all - like configurations.
3) "Full Install". This is where you make an actual installation to the flash drive. Everything, depending on the size of the drive, can be saved.

You need to make a full installation to the flash drive.

Perhaps the "best" distro for your needs is GamerOS. Look at https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasone...inux-gaming-os-is-great-for-your-living-room/
