Is your SDRAM installed correctly? The boot loader doesn't require SDRAM but you do need it for games. I don't like to tell people to be firmer with it but I had issues with mine and I do know other people did too as you do as you do have to be worryingly firm with it, I felt quite uncomfortable having to press it that firmly.
Do any of the other cores that require SDRAM work properly for you?
There is an SDRAM test you can run to check it, it's designed for faults but if if it's not connected fully you'll probably fail - https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/MemTest_MiSTer
