Programs running on Windows know nothing of RAM, only virtual address space. It's not the easiest concept to understand, but ultimately a process in x64 Windows gets 8TB if it's 64bit, and 2-4GB if it's 32bit. Again, this has nothing to do with RAM, and the error message actually has nothing to do with RAM either.
I'm guessing the games are 32bit, and are consuming their virtual address space (whether that be 2GB, or 4GB if they're compiled a certain way when they're developed) which causes Windows to eventually pop up a message (which throws you to the desktop) that the applications are running out of "memory" and need to be closed. Given that you only have 4GB of RAM, Windows itself could indeed run out of memory if even a 32bit application consumes most (or all) of it's 2-4GB of VA, because that VA will indeed be mapped into RAM (well, most of it anyway) which could cause problems.
As to why this is happening, it's not easy to say with what you've gotten so far. Is there a specific application that this happens to with regularity?
