/usr/games not in PATH (i3wm, BASH as default, using fish shell)

Dear all,

I have previously reinstalled my system using the live images, and kept my
system updated with the US main FTP archive with `apt-get update` and
`apt-get upgrade` and `apt-get dist-upgrade`. I installed KDE as my default
desktop, installed i3wm which I am using it mainly now since it is quick
and fast and using SSCM as my login manager. My default shell is /bin/bash.

The problem is, when logged in using SSCM, the PATH is only /bin /usr/bin
/usr/local/bin. Seemingly, my /etc/profile, ~/.profile has not been run by
the login program. I hate to set the PATH in the .bashrc or fish.config
(which I mainly use), but I am not sure where to look at: whether it is an
i3wm specific issue (KDE also could not find /usr/games among others in the
PATH), or SSCM issue. I tried logging in using TTY1 or su - command, and
they include all the PATH as expected.

Any ideas?
