What capture method are you using? Game capture isn't working in all the games (older ones have more troubles). So you could try window capture or desktop capture or use 3rd party method like Dxtory.

Many games require you to run them in borderless windowed mode to broadcast. This is likely the reason your local recordings aren't working properly.

Do you have any sources, right click on sources.  Click New Source, and choose a source where you want to record from, afterwards click okay and then click record. You see, a source tells OBS where to record.  Hope this helps :)
