How To Play Windows Games On Linux?

If a person is only a Windows user, he would rather not face the hassle of playing Windows games on Linux. But yes, if a person is a Linux lover, it will surely make him sad to dual-boot with Windows just for the games not available in open-source. Well, not completely but somewhat problem had been solved when Wine hit the open-source arena because wine enables user to play Windows games on Linux.

Wine is not an emulator, as said by Wine guys. Still we will call it as Windows’ emulator since it lets us play Windows games on Linux by making ‘Virtual Windows environment’ on Linux.
