[bug#28794] [PATCH] gnu: games: Add openrct2.

One of the bigger problems I find with such projects that aim to provide
an "engine" for running such games is that there doesn't seem to have an
effort to make the other "data" replacement. Most projects start only
with engine replacements and don't have a taskforce to provide
free/libre "data" replacement.

Now, it's true that if it's free/libre software, it might be possible to
add it to some free/libre distro. But the challenge is that these
projects seem to do little effort to not recommend non-free functional
data or non-shareable non-functional data. Such that even the software
itself directly tells something along the lines of "this is used to run
Some Non Free Game", instead of using a message like "please specify a
[insert data pack standard abbreviation here] file", so perhaps it must
be patched to remove the first messages?
