Lots of good advice, and I'd add that I bet you are talking about a young teen - 'cause I too was surprised how my teens just don't do or like what I think they should. The sooner you get over it, the better for you - and for them. Go with the flow, and support your daughter in whatever it is she likes and wants to do - as long as she is happy, thriving, etc.
She might not like games and/or hanging out with you. I'd give her chances to have friends over - suggest taking her and a friend to a movie and having her invite the friend to stay over, etc. Give her some space, but indirectly you get to know her friends while in the car, at meals. See, maybe if it goes well, she'll have more over. And if not, don't take it hard... just go with the flow. If you can, take a vacation... without other distractions, she might just be willing to 'play games' with you.
And maybe you should look for a games club....
