You can run some windows games under cedega and wine, but a few great ones have linux binaries:

Neverwinter Nights
Unreal Tournament 2004
Doom 3

Neverwinter Nights and UT2004 have worked better for me under linux than windows.

Off the top of my head: Return to Castle Wolfenstien, America's Army, Doom 3, Quake 3 Arena, Unreal 2004.

More if you try Windows emulation (Cedega). More smaller ones. More if you look for yourself.

Check out this site: - The company's dead but they porting a bunch of good games before they did.

Also this site: they're actually still functioning and are porting even more games to Linux.

And here: has news and a really comprehensive listing of games.

Hope this helps.

Note also that many distros come with the option of installing an assortment of games, anything from cards to chess to strategy, etc. -- J.W.
