You will likely need to reinstall your games, not just copy them over. Many Windows applications use shared DLLs that they place in the Windows or Windows\System(32) directory. In addition there are usually registry entries that will need to be updated. This is what the setup programs do.

If you are trying to keep profile information from your games (levels, preferences, etc.) that's a different story and dependent on each game. Some store their data in your My Documents directory, some in the Local Settings directory tree, others in the registry. If that's your concern you should check the forums of the different games you have for advice on moving an installation of that particular game.
