    Sure you can. You may want to check out winehq.com to make sure the games you want to play on Wine works great before installing them. Also checkout Playonlinux. It makes installing different Windows games a lot easier than Wine.

    Games are the only thing I use Wine for. It can't run every game (yet), but it will run a lot of them.

    Is it possible to be more specific about how to use Wine for games? Iḿ having a hard time figuring it out. Thanks in advance.

    There's really nothing specific to tell; install and configure Wine, then run the game installer just like you would on Windows. In the most basic sense, that's all you really need to do. Certain games may have specific additional requirements and sometimes you may need to use the terminal to run executables, but those specifics can usually be found on the individual game entries in Wine's Application Database.

    Also note that some games may not work on development, but work on stable. And vice versa.
