The majority will work, only the odd one will fail to - often ones that weren't too well made and rely on something that they shouldn't.

Certainly anything that was designed for XP is almost certain to work on Vista.

Currently the only exceptions are 16-bit windows games, none of which will work on the 64-bit versions of Vista and Seven, but as the last ones were released in 1996 or so you probably don't have many of them.
