I disagree. 
So, I've crossed to the dark side, and it is very dark. I'm utterly blinded by darkness. I don't know where I'm going, I dunno what I'm doing. I need help.

I've installed openSuse leap 42.2 on my PC, and I'm trying to run Half life (iso file on my home partition) via Wine. HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee......_____________

Have you tried turning it on and off again?

Steam has the linux version available. I suggest avoiding the hassle of running it on wine and getting it natively there.

I know. But the hassle is what I want actually. I'm trying to figure out working in linux. Most tuts on the net I've found so far have one step missing, or left unexplained fully.

I'm here, just hidden in the shadows. 
Never used Linux, so I can't help you there. But I'm curious, what is gaming on Linux like? I know some of you guys have experience with that, maybe you could describe it to me.

Ok. What versions are you using? What errors are you being notified about? What instructions have you been following?

I believe it depends on what games are you used to. Back when I used linux in a more frequent basis, there were pretty much no big and new titles running natively there, except some of the valve/steam games.
It didn't seem very profitable for developers to make games for that operating system because of how very few end-users like most of us... use it, heh.

Minesweeper and other not-so-graphic-card-resources-demanding games are there for linux though.
And, of course, good ol' FreeDink project with compatibility with most d-mods.
There are, also, ports of older games, like Doom.

For others, emulators and configuring WINE, like the topic owner just wrote, are needed.

Then again, this is the situation I experienced a few years ago, maybe it has changed.

Im on opensuse leap 42.2, and I wanna use wine. I have half life iso, but I don't have a clue what to do. Online tuts are useless for beginners. Basically, most tuts for linux are useless when you are beginning to work in it. People just assume you know certain things...
