There are some, mostly older . . . (Like Quake III.)

WINE is indispensable for gaming under Linux. I've been able to get most games to run well under WINE. ("The Sims 4", "Oblivion", "Fallout 3", "Empire: Total War", "Spore", etc, etc)

I am not a big FPS guy . . . the most recent one that I played and know works under WINE was "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare".

The major complication when using WINE for Linux gaming is that, even if you own the game, you usually need to download and install the No-CD crack, because WINE doesn't do well providing applications with the sort of things that the copy protection mechanisms are looking for when searching for the CD/DVD in the drive.

If you want a really awesome single player shooter, then get Prey. Some guy actually made a native client for it! It is one of the coolest single player games I have ever played!!

Here is the link:

How about Quake4,Doom3 or UT2004?.
Great fps that you can play through without playing online/multiplayer.
For other suggestions look here:

Ditto on Doom 3.

Also look for original Unreal Tournament (UT99 GOTY).
