I'm not going to get a chance to take the time to dive into Neverwinter as it deserves, so I'll start with something else instead.

I like to play many older games that I originally bought for Windows 95/98 on Linux, but some of my collection I have never got working under 64bit Linux, so I would like to see your articles. However, to provide information on getting games working that are not covered by existing well-known web sites, like the ScummVM site and the Play on Linux site, will be difficult. One particular aspect I think you could cover is that many existing solutions seem to be for 32bit Linux, but as per Liam's recent stats almost all the people on this site now use 64bit Linux.

My initial articles will likely be "well-known" solutions. The aim of the articles is more to feature combinations of games and solutions people might not be aware of. I want these articles to use solutions that are cross-distribution and cross-architecture as much as possible, as well as not being overly cumbersome to use. One of the reasons I'm holding off on Neverwinter Nights for now is that most of the solutions are Debian/Ubuntu-specific. Could I get it working elsewhere? Yep. But I'm not interested in inventing my own solutions at this point. I'd like the articles to get some momentum first. That said, I will cover potential pitfalls and previous difficulties that are faced with these games where applicable.

Edit: If anyone has suggestions for games to feature, I can consider them for future articles.
