A lot of the Casual games work (e.g. from Oberon Media and PopCap
Games) such as Westward III, Chuzzle, Bejeweled 2 and Peggle, but then
again a lot don't :( - the AppDB has an entry for them.
With WoW I spent my free game period downloading the ~8 GB worth of
data :(! The other Blizzard titles (Diablo 2, StarCraft and its
expansion, Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne expansion
Other than that, Cepstral SwiftTalker (a text to speech program, with
various voices) works flawlessly (if you disable pulseaudio; with
pulseaudio it can lock up if you stop then play some text). But then
they also have a (command line) Linux version.
 I have had it crash sometimes between levels, but haven't had the
time to track this down or try the Warcraft 3 save race condition game
