I am running 12.04 and am wondering if there is a way to organize games so that when I click on my "games" folder in the menu bar, all of my games will be in there.

Use the Dash

You can use the "DASH" (assuming unity is your interface). Select the "Application Lens " and filter for Games

Alacarte allows you to edit the menu system in Ubuntu. You should be able to organize your games folder with it easily.

Install the Classic Menu Indicator on your Panel

This gives you another option when you need to quickly browse and find your favorite applications such as Games, if the Dash is not your thing.

Press Ctrl – Alt – T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the commands below to add its PPA.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:diesch/testing

Next, run the commands below to install the package.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install classicmenu-indicator

Restart your computer and you will see the indicator menu on the top panel
