Both game mode and HDR game mode allow for changes to the dynamic contrast setting, which affects HDR and the TV's internal contrast enhancement. Your TV will automatically switch to HDR game mode from game mode when it senses an HDR enabled game (it is a separate set of settings which you may want to change, this does not impact regular game mode settings).
From the LG calibration notes at http://www.lg.com/us/support-product...65C7P#manuals:
Control of the ‘Active HDR’ feature is found in the ‘Dynamic Contrast’ setting in the Expert Picture Settings menu. In HDR mode, the Dynamic Contrast settings are defined as follows:
• Off - Active HDR Disabled / Contrast Enhancement Disabled (use this for DV content, it may be greyed out anyway)
• Low - Active HDR Enabled / Contrast Enhancement Disabled (use this to see the features that HDR10 adds to games. Some people say you see more detail with DC set to off whereas 'on' gives a brighter picture. You can toggle it on and off once you're in a game to see the brightness change)
• Medium - Active HDR Enabled / Contrast Enhancement Low
• High - Active HDR Enabled / Contrast Enhancement High
