where are the various log files located?

I am having a problem with various 3d accelerated games, and was hoping to look in various log files to see if I can figure out what is going on.

Is there a central directory where most (if not all) log files are located? I in particular was hoping to examine the info I see echoed to the terminal during the boot process, as well as the X server log file.

thanks in advance,

Sure, usually /var/log is the place you are looking for
