I think that is just carry over from years ago when everything in
factory had to fit on the DVD.

The current policy for factory does not restrict by size and I believe
it is encouraged to get the vast majority of useful packages into
factory. I could be wrong, but I think most games would be welcomed
into factory. Maybe a push to do that for 12.3 should be considered?

(I assume it is too late for 12.2)

This, combined with the 'update' policy we had strictly enforced.
I'm rather sure none of the 'games repo' hosted packages ever gets a 'security only' related fix pushed anywhere...

there are always coupled with version updates.

A coupling of a specific version of a game to a specific release of openSUSE is unrealistic... probably also a reason why many of them never made it into Factory.
