    First of all, calm down. You're not going to encourage us to help you by yelling and cursing. WINE doesn't have a graphical interface. It's also not designed to work specifically with games. For more information on WINE, look at their site:

    http://www.winehq.com

    There is a non-free ($15USD) offshoot of WINE called Cedega, which is designed specifically for playing MS Windows games in Linux:

    http://www.transgaming.com

    However both of these are not guaranteed to work. If you really want to play these games, why not just set up a dual-boot system and run both MS Windows and Linux?
