So I bought them.  I'm no gamer but I figured it was a good enough idea 
to try them out.

The first game dies when I run it - nothing happens.

The second game reset my screen resolution to 640X480 then died.  It 
didn't change my desktop size though, so I couldn't see any of my gui 
tools to fix the problem.   Or even launch a terminal if I knew how to 
fix it from the command line.  So the second game required a reboot of 
my desktop.

The third game worked and had some pretty intimidating graphics on the 
splash screens.  The game itself is somewhat 1980's.

The fourth one I haven't figured out how to run yet.  I'll try the fifth 
one today if I have time.

So far, we don't have an xbox killer yet.
