Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Let the number of old games be x

Let the number of new games be y

x + y =6---------(i)

The cost of each old game is $2

The cost of each new game is $ 4

2x + 4y=22--------(ii)

Multiply (i) by 2 to get

2x + 2y = 12-------(iii)

Subtract    (ii) and (iii) as below

2x + 4y=22

2x + 2y = 12

---------------------

2y=10

 y=5

 5 new games and 1 old game.
