What games do people recommend that run well under wine?

I'm particularly talking about more recent commercial windows based games, not obscure card games ;)

I know WoW runs well, but I'm not keen on monthly subscriptions.

Thanks

I know but it doesn't help me much with finding some good games.... there is no way to organise that list by rating or anything. And I'm interested in hearing what people would recommend.

I got Spore to work without issue, and I've played S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl, Vampire Bloodlines. Neverwinter Nights has a linux client if you have a license key.

The same. The exact same, works great in wine, the only feature that doesn't seem to do very well is the music, the music doesn't work.

Although small games like HOVER! (Thats the actual title) work very efficiently.

I don't play many new games, but Jedi Knight Academy works flawlessly.
