Did you log out and then log back in after adding yourself to the games group?

Can you play other games whose binaries belong to the games group?

for some reason the game folders in my fs belong to group id 20 and not to games.
this group does not exist. i did chown -R root:games the problematic folders now everything works fine. no idea how this could happen.
