I only barely understand what a lumen is

I'm getting a projector for gaming (and occasionally movies). It's across a living room, about 15 feet, to go on a wall. I've previously used just a boring office projector and that worked fine. I'm not super concerned about image quality; it needs to be good enough to read text on the "screen", but that's about it. Can I get away with an LED projector?

I get a little bit of ambient light in the daytime, but not much, and 90% of my use of this device is at night anyway.
LEDs seem to have WAY less lumens than the other kinds of projectors, but I'd like not to worry about bulb replacement.
