Games When I decided to take on this article I thought it would be easy. Grab a few quotes from some developers, re-hash WINE support, check out the latest version of Battle for Wesnoth... Simple stuff.

just a comment on wine

Wine has gotten so much better in the last few years. I played Rift from release day up to now on wine with no problems, except once. For about a week the game didn't work on wine due to a windows error. But other than that it has been well supported. Rage also runs under Wine from what I understand.

Anyone looking for good cheaper/older games should check out Good Old Games, www.gog.com They have a pretty nice collection and most of them run in Wine or Dosbox.

Thanks for the gog.com tip ;) Seems like a lot of older games - do you know if some of them are emulated in any way? Wouldn't think good old Master of Orion would run natively in Windows for example.

Guess I was on another planet when I replied. See now that you wrote "most of them run in Wine or Dosbox."
