java on a laptop

Please can someone help me? I have just installed Fedora on my girlfriends laptop and it works great but I can't find where to download java in the repository. I am looking for one that is compatiable with
She uses it to play games on and isn't terribly happy with me at the moment lol.
Somewhere it said something about a download manager but couldn't find that either. I have already installed it on a desktop and when I went into the repository I just typed in java and it came up instantly. This time I just seem to get the same list of files and I don't know which one to pick. I am sure they make sense to most but they might as well be in greek as far as I am concerned.
Would prefer to use the repository because it seems easier and I am lazy lol so if someone could tell me which one of the files to use I would really appreciate it.

Don't use the repository - go to and download it from there.
