It is sane to have both 32-bit and 64-bit libs installed, in fact it is required as a couple of packages still do not work in 64-bit.  Open Office is one of these.

32-bit games which require 3D performance might be a tricky one, For gaming, I think I would recommend a dual boot, 32-bit Fedora and 64-bit Fedora.
