It should be an easy matter not to play the games even when they are
installed. Regardless, the "gnome" package is not necessary for the
system; it is just a meta-package that depends on all the
gnome-related packages. If you don't want all the gnome-related
packages, then you can skil installing the "gnome" package and just
choose the ones you want.
