Well, with the exception of price (the first gen is cheaper than the 2nd gen), you're basically getting the same thing with minor differences. I was looking at the 16GB and the 1st gen is priced at $219.99 and the 2nd Gen is priced at $299.99.
On the 1st gen, it's about 22 hours, where as with the 2nd gen, you're looking at closer to 36 hours of music playback or 6 hours of video
1st gen requires:Windows Vista or Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later, Mac OS X v10.4.10 or later; iTunes 7.4 or later; USB 2.0 port
2nd gen requires: Windows Vista or Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later, Mac OS X v10.4.10 or later; iTunes 8 or later; USB 2.0 port
The second gen is also a little more compact than the 1st gen as well.
And if I remember correctly, the 2nd gen also has a built-in speaker for listening to music without the headphones.
now, I know there's more specific differences, but those are just a few, and I'm not a very technical person.

I'm not entirely sure that there are any built-in games on the 2nd Gen ipod touch. I do know that it has WiFi capabilities, where you can access the App Store and download a TON of free and paid games (through your iTunes account, of course).
I'm not as familiar with the 1st Gen. I THINK it has WiFi as well, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

If you go through the App Store there are a TON of applications that are free.
If you choose one that is a paid application, you would pay for it through your iTunes account.
