Yes and no.
Probably the two most popular distros that people like to use for gaming on linux is Pop!_OS (which is based off Ubuntu like Lubuntu) and Manjaro. The reason for that is because the people behind them take a little more time to tweak things to get them ready to game on Linux. However you can achieve the same result on pretty much any distro, it just may take a little more tinkering. There are some great YouTube videos on how to game on Linux.
Now one thing to note is that while playing Windows games on Linux has come a long ways, it's still far from perfect. Some games may take a little tweaking to get going, some work flawlessly without any issues and some don't work at all. Games like Fortnite and some of the Call of Duty games do not work at all on Linux (at least right now) because these games include anti-cheat for multiplayer. Anti cheat works at the kernel level on Windows, so there's no way (right now) to get it working on Linux. This is why some people still dual boot Windows, as it allows them to continue to play certian games that do not work at all on Linux, but use Linux for the rest of their games that do work.
In saying that a very large portion of games do run on Linux. If you have steam you can install it and turn on proton which will try to emulate Windows essentially to allow the game to run. They have a website called protondb which lists all the games and how well they work, if at all. Another place to check is Lutris which also allows you to run and install games, however if covers games that aren't available through steam.
As to Manjaro, its a really good distro, but one thing to note is that it's based off Arch Linux. Its a rolling distro which means that they will provide all the latest stuff to their users fairly quickly, where as distros like Ubuntu are more fixed in their major updates, so some things may not get updated until the next major release. They still receive bug fixes and security updates though. The one thing about rolling distros is to be aware that there maybe an ever so sloghyly higher chance of something breaking because they are on the latest and greatest and not all bug may have been ironed out yet. Just something to be aware of.
I am looking up some stuff about manjaro. I came across a page that said manjaro has there own gaming distro. Its called mGAMe. Have you guys ever tried it? I have been watching all the stuff everyone has been posting and starting to get a little more comfortable with this whole Linux thing now. It's not as scary as I thought lol. So I think I am going to spend some time finding a distro that fulfills my requirements. Then, spend a whole lot of time learning it. From there I can branch off into other builds that are optimized for gaming. Theres another one I'm reading about called SparkyLinux. I guess it comes with all the stuff needed to get you gaming. It has Steam, Play On Linux, Wine etc preinstalled. Plus its prepacked with lots of games which are totally free and open source. Man my adventure into Linux is like a falling into a wormhole. Like the adventure will take you wherever you desire to go lol. There is definitely something for everyone. I find this a lot more interesting than Windows.
