What games and how are you trying to install them? Have you tried:

Add/Remove Programs or Synaptic?

If it's a game on the net list one.

Have you click on the drop down Menu in Synaptic and changed it to 'All Availiable Applications' (or something like that)?

Man, you really should learn how to ask a question and try to be clear in your first post.

Unfortunately, it seems that VDrift is only available to Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's repositories, since VDrift cannot be re-distributed due to licensing issues, as detailed here (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/vdrift-data/+bug/139843).

You can however, download the VDrift sources from Sourceforge.net (http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=137283&package_id=150901). These require you to compile the program before you'll get a working game. If you want to avoid the complexities, you can download the "vdrift-2006-10-06" package, which does contain a Debian (.deb) package.
