You don't have to install all of those files, you just need to install the latest version. If you are not going to program in java and just want to use it to play games, you don't even need the SDK but only the JRE.

Remove everything that you installed for java so far, get the latest version of the JRE from the sun site and install that file.

The JavaPostgres file is probably a jdbc driver for the postgresSQL db, again you won't be needing that file to play java games.

if your games are Java Applets, you'll need the Java Plug-in for your browser.
