Not a lot of games left to package? The SIG wishlist has a bunch of games. If people need more I can certainly add more. For example:
Granted some of them can't be packaged for legal reasons but there are plenty which could be added.
As for where to start on packaging, I don't remember what resources I used to learn to create rpms as it was a long time ago. Often when looking to package something, I see if an rpm has been created for another distribution. That is often a good starting point. For example, Block Attack - Rise of the Blocks is a Tetris Attack clone I found on the web site mentioned above. A search for '"block attack" rpm' finds that opensuse has a package:

personally I'd prefer containing the games on Flatpak to be more flexible and it can be provided for a hugh user base.
I hope the games I've suggested now are mostly clones. Thus they might be included for Fedora. The Dark Mod sounds an interesting game! I've made a notice for your wish:)

It would be glad starting contributing on Fedora as a maintainer. Therefore I hope to work on a small project soon.
I'm interested in games packaging, but I don't know where to start.
only opensource software can be part of Fedora, and there are not that many opensource games out there (which are not already packaged for Fedora), so it might be a bit difficult to find something suitable and interesting (but some of the OS clones might be a good idea). Additionally regarding games packaging, you can consider making flatpaks instead of RPMs and submitting them to Flathub . Flathub can not only contain opensource games, but also freeware and free-to-play games (let's talk about Linux-native games at the moment, incorporating Wine into them would be another level of difficulty). For example, I'd personally love to see The Dark Mod  available at Flathub.
In Fedora you can also participate on packaging and maintaining game-related software, like emulators and launchers. Wine, Lutris and PLayOnLinux are the most visible ones, but then there are also lots of retro emulators, many of them not even in Fedora yet, I'd guess. So it depends on your experience and interests (both gaming and packaging). You could even participate in e.g. Lutris community in creating and maintaining scripts to allow easy installation of Windows and other platforms' games on Linux.
The Gaming SIG  might provide a better advice, this is just what I know.
