| of the frequently asked questions we receive in our mailbox every week.
| It is true to say that the number of commercial games released for Linux each
| year remains small compared to other platforms. Nevertheless, we faced lots
| of difficult choices compiling a list of 42 of the best commercial Linux
| games. The selection we have finally chosen covers a wide range of different
| game genres, so hopefully there will be something here that will interest

| * Released under a proprietary license with a fee required either to purchase
| the game, or a monthly charge
| * Not require Wine to run. Wine is a compatibility layer for running Windows

| which developers can compile Windows applications alongside to help port them
| to Unix-like systems.
