There's always Contrib.
I think having game demos in non-free/contrib of Debian would be
awesome. Yes, you're helping the companies make money, but you're also
making Debian a little more attractive to the average consumer.
Without any commercial interest in Linux/BSD/etc., none of them would
have gotten quite as far as they have (those companies *have* sunk lots
of money and manpower into our efforts). Games are one of the things
that push consumer hard-ware and driver developments to the max. ^,^
