As the name suggests, this edition of MandrakeLinux Standard Edition 8.1 was specifically targeted for gamers: apart from the usual games included in Linux distributions such as the KDE and Gnome game compilations, this edition also includes the Linux version of The Sims. Additionally, a code for a 3-month subscription to Transgaming's WineX technology - which was also used to "port" The Sims to Linux - was included in the package, enabling gamers to play some of their Windows games on Linux.

This package was initially the only possibility to get the Linux version of The Sims (until Transgaming sold the disc and manuals as an "On Its Own" version themselves later).
