    Connect the old one to your computer's iTunes and do File > Transfer Purchases (File > Devices > Transfer Purchases on iTunes 11) to make sure that all of the apps are on your computer, then force a backup of the iPod by right-clicking the iPod 'device' and selecting 'backup' and then restore that backup onto your new iPod (that will overwrite anything that you've added to that iPod) - hopefully your games and their progress will be copied over.
