This experiment and numbers are not representative. The experiment is
inaccurate due to the need of manual intervention, and the difference
in the numbers is so low that you could blame the lack of precision in
time(1) for measurements at that scale.

You need to play those games to get any meaningful information, and
then gather data while they are running. Do they make use of 3D
acceleration? Are they using the same drivers (video, audio, etc)?
What frame rates do you get? What CPU usage do you get while actually
