I don't think that games need to be any easier to install than the rest of the system. Linux users aren't idiots, and often like control over thier system (i.e. don't install it somewhere random and expect me not to get pissed.)
In any case, there's always tradeoffs in life. Backwards compatibility comes with a cost, a cost that Linux has frequently chosen not to pay.
