Some old, old games, require that the external IP is pingable...

...on my old linksys, I just set "respond to ping requests" and all was well, where is there something like that in pfSense? Or do I just make a firewall rule?

We do what we must, because we can.

The firewall rule should be set as follows.

Action: Pass
Interface: WAN
Protocol: ICMP
ICMP type: Echo
Source: any
Destination: WAN address

Well I made that rule; it doesn't do the trick, changed the rule to any ICMP, still doesn't work...

it seems any rules, portforwards I make, just do not want to work...
