LimeWire, mldonkey, gtk-gnutella, bittorrent etc are some of the file sharing tools available on Linux. You can play some windows games using wine or cedega (which is based on wine).

File sharing - emule is pretty cool. I tried edonkey but had some unwanted uploading to my machine so changed to emule.

Cedega allows for loads of Windows games to install and play. Cedega isn't free. A few 's/$'s per month for a subscription.
All three Unreal Tournaments play on Linux without cedega. As does Quake3.
Some games install and play with just Wine installed but it's not easy.

Saying it costs a few $ a month subscription isn't quite accurate. That makes it sound like you're stuck paying every month which isn't the case. AFAIK it's about $5 / month for the first three months to get support and the latest version. After that you can keep using it, you just can't get the latest version.
