Micah, JOOC, what games do you play that don't run on Wine?

The only game I absolutely love that doesn't in LucasArts' Outlaws.  When I
first started to use Wine, Outlaws didn't even try to run.

A few years after that, I tried again.  Outlaws would give me the startup
screen and main menus, but the game itself would crash.

Tried again about 3 years ago.  The game ran, but keyboard and mouse issues
made it unplayable.

I should try again...  :)
