I used to play

  1. Age of Empires 2
  2. Age of Empires 3
  3. Rise of Nations

in Windows 7.

But I find none of them work for me, and I couldn't find any alternatives in the Software Center. Are there any good alternatives for Ubuntu?

You need something like Wine to play the games you mention. How about some new games in the same category that you can get for free?

I can suggest two open-source games in the real-time strategy warfare game category:

Wine for both game has 'silver' as best so that is probably not going to get him working games ;) –  Rinzwind Jan 2 '13 at 15:37

@Rinzwind 0 A.D exist for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Check the website he has linked. –  Alvar Jan 2 '13 at 15:41
    
Sorry @alvar I meant the games TS mentioned not ayoun's. –  Rinzwind Jan 2 '13 at 15:43
    
@Aeyoun Probably should mention that 0 A.D is still in Alpha stage. So don't expect it to be perfect. –  Alvar Jan 2 '13 at 15:48
