What kind of games are these? Are they PC games? Android games? Game system games? Can you provide links to their websites? – Seth Mar 22 '13 at 19:47

Assuming by "Metal Slug" you're referring to one or more of the side-scrollers, they should work fine with Wine least if it's version 1.0. See this Wine AppDB page. Here are the details. The testing is pretty old but since it worked very well then, the same software will most likely work well in Wine in Ubuntu now. Test it and see!

I haven't found information in the AppDB for KOF 2002 or King of Fighters 2002. But you may want to search yourself, in case I'm missing something. Especically if you know another name for the software. Anyway, you can try it and see.

Assuming you have the Windows versions of these games, just install Wine (see also this documentation), then run the installers like you would on Windows. If you can't run them by double-clicking on them, then right-click on them and click Wine Windows Program Loader. (If you don't see that, then you might need to click Open With and fine Wine or Wine Windows Program Loader.)
