If the game needs to continue running, showing some animation or movement on the screen, then I would just use a standard game loop. It doesn’t matter if the player only interacts with it every once in awhile.

But if the screen remains totally static for long periods of time you might opt to use a modified loop that will only re-render when something has changed.
