No. Unless your Windows games that you bought have OS X versions on the same CD, then chances are they won't run.
There is an emulator called Virtual PC which can allow you to run Windows applications, but the thing is so slow it's almost impossible to use with games.
If you want to play games buy a console or a handheld - playing video games on computers isn't that cost effective anyway.
