Games on Linux without Wine/Winex


I understand that Quake 2 and Quake 3 can be ported to Linux without using emulators like Wine or Winex.

What other games can be ported without such emulators? Is Half-Life and UT possible?

Also what about new age games like painkiller, splinter cell and farcry?
