I don't play games so I otherwise cant be of much help on specifics. With that said though, as of today there are 734 games in the Windows Store. Just clicking on them at random, most are RT compatible. Ironically, the games that I know are not RT compatible are the ones Microsoft has made available for the Modern/Metro interface in Windows 8 (Pinball, Solitaire, and Mahjong Xbox collections). Sorry I cant give you any more information but I really don't play games - just pulled up the games section in the Windows Store for the Windows 8 RTM to do a quick check.

NVIDIA and Epic Games have successfully ported the full PC version of Unreal Engine 3 to both Windows 8 and, more importantly, Windows RT. Demonstrating the achievement on a Tegra 3-powered ASUS Vivo Tab RT, it played a buttery-smooth version of Epic Citadel, suggesting that developers of both PC and Xbox games should have no problem in bringing them over to the new operating system. It also casually mentioned that both Gears of War and Mass Effect were built on the engine, heavily implying that we could see titles of that caliber coming to Microsoft's low-power OS once it makes it debut on October 26th, but we'll let you decide for yourself after the break.

Taptiles for instance as of now, before launch, only supports x86 and x64. However it will be on ARM at launch and I believe there will be a winodws phone version also because this is one of the games that allows you to pause on the tablet and finish on your phone.
