Which game? If it's an online game using for example flash then that's to be expected.

Try to launch the games from within a terminal window and see what output you get.
If it's not starting, I would expect an error message on the terminal screen.
You really aren't telling much about your setup, so it's hard to give more accurate help.

Can you give me the code to open a sample game
My setup is basically in a normal xsession trying to open the games.
I do not have anything downloaded but chromium

"python games" icon launches the following command:

sh -c $HOME/python_games/launcher.sh

so you can open an LXTerminal session and type that line.

if you "for instance" don't have a python_games folder in your home folder, it should tell you.

What output do you see in LXTerminal when you run the command?

It means what Operating System did you install and did you use the .img file or NOOBS?
