I'm interested in compiling a list of games, that work on windows, but also work on linux, wether it be with a patch or not. Anyone know of any?

The few I know of:
Neverwinter Nights
Wolfenstein

I've got quite a few working though wine, but if I want to play games I usually just restart my computer and run Windows XP. Most of my gaming on FreeBSD and Linux has been with xScorch though. Scorched Earth is such an awesome game :D.

Yeah it works, you just need to spend $50 on it compared to the $10 for windows

wine will let most of them work...im not sure on how much of the dx api it covers though...i know that certain very specific functions used by older, sloppier games (a lot of games made for win95) won't work. Hell those games own't even work in xp, definetly not linux/wine.
