You can play some games through wine, but most of them won't run properly. I managed to install Freelancer in my Ubuntu laptop. Was quite pleased with it as I am a huge Freelancer fan. But Freelancer is an old game and works really well with Windows, so no wonder Wine could run it so smoothly.
I unfortunately still keep a small Windows XP partition on my laptop for the other games I can't really play through Ubuntu.
Maybe one day, Ubuntu will be one of the platforms games developers will actually consider.
