Depends. If you are upgrading to 32bit you porbably can run most of them if your harware is good enough. Have you run the upgrade advisor? it will tell you if any of your hardware cant cut it. Just google win 7 upgrade advisor.

Let us know if you need more help

Their are also some other options available like dual booting if your harddrive has the space for separate partion, or you could add a drive with win 7 on it. As I did. Then any games that wont run on seven you can still play on Xp. Check the tutorials on creating a dual boot with Xp. Fabe

Or use compatibility mode, right click on the .exe, select 'Properties', then the 'Compatibility' tab, check 'Run this program in compatibility mode', then choose the OS from the list.
