Even if they don't, you can always install "Windows XP mode" which is really just a preconfigured VM image of windows XP. I've had no problems doing that for those rare apps that just won't run in Win7.
For REALLY old games, you'll want to use a dos emulator. I prefer dosbox myself for it's customizability and compatibility.

Games released 2000 and later should be no problem but 1995... From Windows XP on DOS is out and titles such as Lemmings require an emulator or an older OS. And, as retro games still have their fans and the visible difference is chunky graphics and resolution, it's relatively easy to play/write a Win 7/8 game that looks like, say Prehistoric. 16 bit without 16 bit, if you know what I mean. I played Prehistoric at highschool and liked it.
