What old games do you mean?
It's really too many to list. If it is a game for Windows and came out in the mid-to-late 1990's, there's a good chance that it has a 16-bit installer even if it is not a 16-bit game. I believe all Windows games from LucasArts up to and including X-Wing Alliance are that way. I pulled the first LucasArts game CD-ROM I saw from my shelf (The Phantom Menace game) and tested it, and it won't install on Windows 7 x64 because it has a 16-bit installer even though the game came out in 1999. The game will run and install on XP though.
