yeah. linux isnt really built for that sort of gaming. you can download a program called wine that is basicall a windows environment INSIDE your linux environment. But again, its not really built for heavy gaming like doom 3

actually, linux is built for everything. its the software makers that don't want to make versions of their software for linux.

eg. y can unreal play in linux but vietnam won't.
