If you have a non HDR medium playing you have the option for a mode that emulate HDR, I forget what it is called though.
The game consoles add extra information to the TV that allows it to enable the Game Mode settings to reduce latency.
I don't have a solution for why you can't see the mode but what raistline said is 100% wrong. It doesn't matter at all what device or content you are running into the TV. As long as it's triggering hdr10, you should see game as an option in addition to vivid, bright, and standard.
I had the 'dim' game mode firmware for a few months and ultimately reverted my firmware because it just looked worse in everything to me. Some people like it, particularly in very dark rooms. To me, it was just dull, which is the opposite of the impression HDR normally gives me.
