Both company's suddenly sell the games for the best prices they ever have, just before the product becomes far less valuable. I find this as at least a little suspicious.

But they have no vested interest in selling slightly more of them - because they don't have an inventory. For companies like GOG, retaining customer base is more valuable than a slight uptick in sales and they don't need to clear out inventory since they don't have any. This is a case of agenticity and paternicity causing you to see intent and connection where there is none nor does it make sense for there to be any; it also requires ignoring that those 2 games were only a small portion of the games included in that sale.
