For games, anything that tries to hit the Mac's custom chips things will fail. That's most games. I imagine the sound chip isn't 1:1, either, and is why is sounds like garbage. I've mostly been enjoying productivity software, and for that A-Max really is sensational.
I've only got a couple of games on mine right now: Quarterstaff, which I've mentioned before, and Spaceward Ho!
When I'm in the HD experience, with floppy drive attached, it really does look and feel like a massively beefed up MacPlus. For disks, I've been making everything Mac disks. I have a 2nd Mac (Quadra 700) that I sometimes create and move files/disks around before bringing over to the "Mac Plus". Having a "bridge" machine is very handy along the way. I also sometimes will pop on a FloppyEmu so I can load software I get off the internet. But to be 100% honest, I much prefer getting original boxed versions of what I want and load it like the real deal.
Word, Mac Draw II, Hypercard... there's a lot of very cool stuff out there.
Don't forget about CrossMac. Just be careful you don't create conflicts.
