Can Linux run video games?
Hi and welcome to the forum.
You can run some Windows applications using WINE. If WINE does not support the games and apps you need, then maybe dual booting Linux and Windows would be a better option.
Looking at my Games menu, these are all I have time for that work well:
World of Goo
Finding Nemo (for my son) (wine)
Running games under wine is pretty straight forward. Insert the cd and mount it, cd to where the install .exe is and run as regular user. As an example, if "setup.exe" is the executable that installs the game:
cd .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/StarCraft/ wine StarCraft.exe
