Absolutely. I don't install any game that would require a non free library, however I do have the proprietary graphics driver installed. It's the only proprietary software on an otherwise free distro. The support for my graphics card was so bad, I had lag moving the mouse on the desktop. My card was supposedly supported but I didn't realise how bad the radeon drivers were. If I was a new user to free software, attracted by the offering of games, unless I was lucky enough to have a supported nvidia card I would likely just move on.
Although the question is, do the games make it seem bad by being too advanced for the drivers, or are drivers to blame?
