[arch-general] Why not create a new repo specified for games ?

I support this idea.
Keep most games in AUR and the more popular ones can have their own repo 
[games] on a separate server.
This server could be community financed using donations and if not 
enough interest will be raised for new repo, all these huge games can be 
moved to AUR and the smaller ones can stay in [community].

That's my view at it.
