I also like it. True, we do have games which require Joysticks and
Gamepads, but honestly, I don't think they are a majority. Most games in
the archive are persumably played with a mouse. Adding a mouse icon to
the logo is, however, quite pointless.
This logo, however, shows a chess figure. Let's assume someone who
didn't know that it was for the Debian Games Team, but has heared about
Debian, could make 2 guesses: Either it is a group of Debian chess fans,
or some gaming related group (which is correct).
Moreover, it matches the color theme of http://debian.org, which isn't
really a requirement, but imo a big plus.
