If you are just asking about old games, I haven't been messing with them because on Steam, there are thousands of new linux games. I play mostly Civ V on Steam (the linux version is much more stable than the Windows version IMO), and minecraft. I've messed with linux versions of Gary's Mod and Goat Simulator on Steam also, but I think that is it. When you are on steam, look for SteamOS compatible games because they usually work on Ubuntu and Linux Mint.

I have had trouble in the past with getting Windows games to work with Wine, so I rarely even try anymore. Maybe it is better with Wine 2.x?

PlayOnLinux will greatly increase your Wine library because you can use as many versions of Wine as you like until you find a version that runs the program you want and then save the configuration especially for that application. I've come to believe that Linux is better for older PC games than a post-XP Windows OS because Wine is more configurable. These are some of the games I've run on Linux Mint with a Radeon HD 5450 graphics card and an open source driver with only negligible bugs, lags or glitches:

Championship Manager 3 - Championship Manager 01/02
Championship Manager 4 and CM 03/04
Football Manager 2005
GTA3, Vice City and San Andreas
Crazy Taxi 1 and 3
The Movies
Sega Bass Fishing
Virtua Tennis
Outrun 2006
Need for Speed 3: Hot Pursuit
Doom
Duke Nukem 3D
Theme Hospital
POD Gold
Tyrian
Ikaruga
Jet Set Radio
Screamer

Wow, that's quite a list. I am not a gamer, but now and then I have people ask if it is possible to play games on Linux. I bookmarked this page and now I have an answer for them!

Cool answers :) and a very nice list !

I'm fiddling with dualboots..ubuntu mate, mate ubuntu, mint 17-18, w2k,xp,w7 and w10
wine, dosbox to be able 2 help friends and my kids with playing their lost games and programs..and mayb turn Linux ;)

wine installed through the default software package program or through appgrid (installed from same place)
dosbox same procedure

Steam i never got to work. chrashed my system twice so i have stopped trying
But I'm told my kollega at work's brother should have made it and servicing it, so if thats true i have to speak with him when possible..

playonlinux i never got 2 use.. or rather havent seen the possibilities in it, i usually install it so maybe i should take a closer look at it

Just point them to Steam. There are over 3,200 games that run on Linux. The full list: http://store.steampowered.com/search/?c ... 8&os=linux. Also GOG have games for Linux: https://www.gog.com/games?system=lin_mi ... ing&page=1. GOG also re-release older games to work on modern operating systems.

DOSBox will generally work fine for DOS games. I bought the Ultima and Eye of the Beholder series through GOG. Lots of fun replaying old favorites.

I haven't used Wine. Well, once and it made Notepad my default text editor :| Wine, not even once. Be careful of Windows malware: https://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#Is_Wine_mal ... patible.3F

Yep if u use any kind of winprogs you have 2 check for virus and malware...;) , cought me by the balls
Download ie6 for w2k went fine, installation of ie6..black screen and my windows partition died
Nice go with my head btween my as.

Wine is working very well for me
and with support from the installed dosbox (wine use dosbox in its own way) there is an alternative more to get games/progs up and going

Steam.. Could You explain in details how you install it ?
if there is a graphic and a terminal way to install.. or other concerns
I'd hate killing a fine working system again.

There is very little reason to use Wine online as most older games (as well as the new-old ones from GOG and Humble Bundle) can be installed and played without any internet connection. The only exceptions are later games where online product activation became the norm and any games you run through the Windows Steam client (and you can run Steam in offline mode once the games are installed).

http://www.dedoimedo.com/games/linux-ga ... o-get.html an old link still good for more links and games.

I play EAW - European Air War, an old Micrprose game / WWII fighter simulation for Windows that has community updates. I use version 1.28e. Also have tried 1.29.
It works in Wine. Works good with Wine 1.6.2 in Mint 18. I use Mate.

I did not see "Thief" on that fine list.

While I have no idea if Thief would work in Linux, "The Dark Mod" (similar to Thief) works very well - without go-betweens.
