If you want to suggest changes, like new dependencies or game-related stuff, please send a github pull request with explanation/proof why this is necessary, so we can discuss it. Determine correct behavior and dependencies can be tricky, therefore we'd like to discuss and wait for confirmation of others before adding modifications or new ebuilds.
