How do I install the apt-get to the pi? (I put my question in the gaming list because it is needed for most games)

Apt get is already installed in Raspbian and most distros. What problem are you having?

It's already installed, then why do most sites/forms say that I need to Install it?

You probably misunderstood. Give a link to what you are talking about.

The name can be found with an 'apt-cache search GAMENAME' search, using keywords. For example, for 'Flight of the Amazon Queen', you could try 'apt-cache search flight of the amazon queen', although some games may require something a bit more less wordy :-). Or use a search engine like DuckDuckGo (I'm not advertising, it's just my preference :D. Plus, it looks pretty awesome with the terminal theme)
That's one example!

It's an example of someone telling you to use apt-get to install something on your computer, it isn't someone telling you to install apt-get on your computer.

Lets say I want to install the sims and the name of the package is sims. I would use the command sudo apt-get install sims.

Yes but don't forget to do sudo apt-get update before attempting to install anything (within the same day or so).
