Well, I agree that command-line games are something special. I think
that providing a desktop or menu file for such games is not different
from graphical games though. You just need to add Terminal=true to your
desktop file. The main benefit is that people are more aware of the
games and don't forget about them and it's always nice to have some kind
of visual feedback. However I see the difficulties with packages like
bsdgames. I think it's up to the maintainer to decide which games he
wants to add or not because there are simply to many of them in this
