    So I have installed the latest Wine and have started to download/install a game.

    From what I am reading it's working 100%, very few issues. I myself don't believe that for a second.

    What are my chances of these games opening, and running at proper frame rates etc? Will only some games actually work?

    Installed Blur to test it, since it's a fairly high graphics game.

    And on low settings it was quite bad, playable but bad. It also caused issues with my duel monitor setup after leaving the game.

    Going to try some more games, see what happens.

    Never tried it myself .. probably largely depends on the game.
