Well, /usr is the place you put them a lot of times. For example, you can unpack koules to /usr/games/ .

It doesn't really matter where you put it. What I am saying, is that /usr is a common place. If you put it in there, it will create it's own directory in usr. For example, koules likes to be in usr, so it can create a directory in games. If you unpacked it to /test
it would create a directory /test/usr/games
It would still run.
