We're going to need a little more before we can make an educated reply. Is the exact same thing happening with every game? Have you tried restarting? If many applications are doing this, have you tried reinstalling OSX?

this is very strange behavior--are any of your other applications affected? if they are, it could be the first signs of a hardware issue.

I'd back up all your data and either bring it in to an Apple Store or call in to Tech Support. It could be a larger issue (with your hard drive, etc.). I'm not an expert, but that's my suggestion.

You can try repairing the permissions using Disk Utility, see if that makes any difference.
