      If you want to play windows games, use windows for it. Less grief. Or you'd have to contend with game's own bugs (nearly all games, except for old&simplest, have some) + bugs appearing due emulation+performance loss. Not worth the effort. But that's me.

        Yes, but on drm-next i915 and amdgpu drivers only; several ports support a Vulkan backend already, including RPCS3 for PS3 games; see graphics/vulkan-loader

        How about Wine DXVK? I'd be curious to see if it's viable for Windows gaming.
        Should be viable for Direct3D 12 games only, see graphics/vkd3d; WoW64 support was committed to emulators/wine-devel some months ago, see review D1472
