Hi and welcome to LQ You have 3 options:
1. Buy games like NeverWinter Nights and others that have Linux installers - these can also be found on the web
2. Sign up to www.transgaming.com and buy Cedega
3. Go to www.winehq.com and have a look at their database to see which games work under Wine

isnt using cadega a block in the road to trying to get games made that work on linux?
surely if microsoft products are used on linux there will be less of an impetus to make open source games(?)
