Does anyone know any good RPG games that run with CrossOver?

What kind of RPG are you looking for? Because some peoples consider Zelda being a RPG, others being adventure. Some consider Neverwinter Nights being a RPG, some consider it action with RPG elements. Some don't consider Final Fantasy even being a game, like me .

Anyway, Neverwinter Nights is great and runs in Linux natively, without the need of any kind of emulator. In fact, you can download the game and all expansions from Bioware's homepage free of charge. You will still need a valid cd-key to play though.

You might consider Cedega if you really want to game in Linux:

Crossover is simply not made for that. I found plain vanilla wine to be better for games then Crossover in most cases.

Regards!

I would go with Neverwinter then, if you have the hardware to run it. It's very very cheap now and works in Linux just as well. I will not give a 10 for the Linux binaries because the movies between the chapters does not work. Still, the game is superb
