Unity WebGL games they take time to load and startup, but why not have a placeholder image and play button to begin the games.

I've seen this used on Ludum Dare and with Sketchfab as well as online videos.

This speeds up initial page loading times gives the player the option to read about the game before playing.

It could also save on bandwith if players choose not to play the game.
