    Unhappy Resident Evil 4


    Hello evry one how are you? I'm new to Linux and I had ubuntu less then a month and still learing. I have a question regarding games, do pc games work on linux? I'm trying to install resident evil 4 and I just get an error when I put the disc in the drive and I can't run installer like I did on windows. Does anyone can suggest me how to install this game and other games as well. Thanks.

    Hi and welcome

    No, in general windows games do not run on linux.
    Linux and windows are different platforms.

    However, there is steam for linux and some steam games have been ported.

    There are some native games, *ported* steam games and there is a chance that *some* windows games will run with an emulator called wine.
    And while wine is a remarkeable effort technology wise, I dont use it because getting games to run with can be a huge effort.
