Note that there are already quite a few games on the Mandriva free dvd, 
in the contrib section.  So it's just a matter of adding a Gaming group, 
and possible a Gaming task option.
This would work really well with a tree selection, where one could 
select the group (Gaming), and/or deselect/select individual 
applications.  Since gamers could well have a good idea of their game 
Also note that many commercial games have a free (at least in cost) 
Linux version.

(That makes at least 3 Canadians here.)
