Most of the games for XP will work on Vista. If not, you can try to run in compatibility mode. Anything before XP is a little sketchy, though. It might run, but it might be a little glitchy.

For some reason I can't get Steam games to work (other than Half life 2).

Other than that, these have worked fine:

World of Warcraft
Hellgate: London
Crysis
C&C Generals

not had no problems with games either, the percentage of that happening is very slim most games should work perfectly fine
