Games on Linux without Wine/Winex


Hi,

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?

Thanks,
Floyd.

I have Quake 3 linux version, which is kewl because I can play it directly from the Cd or install it. There is Americas Army, and I have seen Half Life game servers so there might be a Linux ver.
