Log message:
Remove games from the default $PATH in /etc/skel

The games are a playground for developers. Their code is very old and full
of bugs.

So when you next sit down on a fresh snapshot install and want to do a quick rot13 or do a round of tetris, you may need to specify the full path.

Alternatively, you could dig into the code and see if you can fix a bug or two.
