Of course, as long as not the game itself is the main reason of the
compilation, for example if its an operating system its legal. This, of
course, does not count for games that are really forbidden (on the index),
like doom, rise of the triad or quake. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to
provide Debian DVDs for events like Linuxtag.
