Well, as no one has commented (I personally don't maintain any
games packages)...

IMHO it would be better to move them to Games on
build.opensuse.org, indeed, as it has a lot more potential
maintainers there.

What I don't know is whether there are many of them that require
e.g. ffmpeg/libav or similar libraries that are only available
on Packman.

For everything else, as no one is replying... sure, why not,
just go ahead :D

Any comments/thoughts/knee-jerk reactions from package maintainers ?
