Firewalls block this inbound traffic but allow outbound traffic like when you browse the Internet, stream, send/receive emails.
Hence, Services such gaming, business or industrial application that require a static or dedicated IP often do so because those "SERVICES" initiate traffic from a location on the Internet to the devices on your home network. Allowing inbound Internet traffic originating from the public Internet is inherently dangerous because it could enable attacking devices on your home network.
