There hasn't been a rise of reported iPod Touches that broke on their own. iPod Touches do have the ability to break, but the construction is pretty sturdy to where it is not often the iPod Touch completely breaks. Although iPod Touches do break, it is not likely they will break on their own.
I'm not certain, but pretty sure that you are trying to download a game 'app' to your ipod and the 'apps' and ipod classics are not compatible. iphones and ipod touches are the only ipods compatible with 'apps'.
