Debian's approach of this isn't really ethical.
Anyone has the freedom of install installing propitiatory software even
non tech users.

Including non-free software in the repository is insisting/proposing
users, especially non tech ones, to give up their freedom for simplicity
without understanding the importance of them and the technical problems
that non free/libre software brings (a good example of that is the game
modding community).

Mainstreams users like you seem to refer to them are what makes software
and hardware go in decadence.
I don't say that they are directly concerned, but it is how their were
treated like, that made them what they are now and ask the same bad

If you continue to give them what they are made of the project will
slowly become like them and only enforce the already bad circle.

Their are already lots of free software games, seek the libre game wiki

Note: emulators can be free software but the roms/blobs shouldn’t be
included, f-droid already does that.
