The start of the hard drive is located at '/', unlike Windows everything is under '/' including mounted devices such as the cdrom drive.

Root (super user) software can be found in '/bin/'
User software can be found in '/usr/bin'
I'm not sure if FF8 and The Sims 2 can be run under wine, Windows games do not run in Linux, you may have some luck with Wine, but still don't expect them to work.
