So let's say I go to Linux.org and on the 'Applications' page I download a game. How would I install it or get it to work?...

    It depends on the format of the game you are downloading from linux.org. There are a lot of formats available like .deb, .rpm, binary or source files and each has different command for installation.

    Have you tried Synaptic Package Manager? Its available in Menu and a lot of games are available in its sources.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
