My mom remarried a year after the divorce from my dad. My dad also played games, and I think it was because he was threatened by the fact that another man was coming into the house. He didn't want to be replaced.
From the point of view of a child, they know. My sister and I knew what was going on without being told. I was 7 she was 11.
And another thing: Don't force children to call another man "dad." It was very uncomfortable and confusing at 7 to hear, "You can call him dad if you want to."
