WINE is a recursive acronym for "WINE Is Not an Emulator." WINE is used by many to play Windows games and a few to run Windows software on UNIX-like systems such as GNU/Linux or macOS. HOWEVER, installing WINE does increase the risk of getting a computer virus and currently, or at least as of the time of this writing, WINE, for whatever reason, does not have a network-access "off-switch"; this means that if you somehow manage to run something that regularly collects telemetry data, which is what most Windows and Apple users find as normal these days, as a GNU/Linux user, you would then also potentially have that issue to contend with, which is definately still not normal nor ever should be.

BUT, if all you care about is gaming, SEGA fortunately made a game console called the Dreamcast, to which a few titles were released for both Windows AND the Dreamcast between the years 1997 and 2002, with a few games released for the Dreamcast even after that, such as "Sturmwind" in 2013. This means that you can use a Dreamcast emulator instead of WINE to play games in a lot of cases, the best of which so far for GNU/Linux is 'Redream'. You can grab a copy of 'Redream' at

So without further ado, here is a list of games that were both available for Windows AND the Sega Dreamcast...
