No you can not. Unless it will run on that sort of system. I think Unreal Tournament runs on some linux system but not sure. Game makers useally make it for windows or Apple computers useually never linux computer but you may find a game that will work.

Yeah, WINE allows you to run Windows Programs on Linux. Pretty much the only program for linux that costs money!

There's also something called Cedega, but I've never used it.
