I dual-booted my Windows gaming machine a couple of months ago and I have installed the Windows Steam client, but simply added my existing Windows drive as a repository and can run quite a few of the games with no extra configuration. Here are the results so far:

Games that work perfectly:

GTA Vice City
GTA San Andreas
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl
Left 4 Dead
Hitman: Codename 47
Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
Far Cry - Very high detail but anti-aliasing switched off

Games that work fine, but performance is slower than in Windows:

TES IV: Oblivion -- sluggish in 1080p
TES V: Skyrim -- sluggish in 1080p
Mass Effect - works well, a little slow.

Games that do not work:

Mafia 2 - could not start
The Witcher - loaded to menus but game did not start
Metro 2033 - fails to start, just first splash screen and sound for 1 second. There is a native version Metro 2033 Redux, but I do not own that and don't want to pay for it again... I do own Metro Last Light though which is native to Linux :)
