Any game that's more than, say, 4 or 5 years old, should never sell for more than $5 digital. $9.99, maybe, with constant $4.99 sales. Let people impulse buy them and fall in love.

One random example - Steam has the excellent but eight-year-old Bloodlines listed at $20. It would be a bit silly for me to re-buy it at that price, just to eliminate scrounging for discs, but if it were only $5 I might have done so at some point.

Every Activision game is $20. Blur? TimeShift? Gun? Really?
Even Prototype. I guess I can see the argument that a $10 game would eat sales of the sequel, maybe. Or you can argue that gamers would sit behind the curve, always waiting 4 or 5 years.
Those aren't your core consumers. You don't make much off of them, anyway. But they still talk up games and get excited and get interested and create buzz.
Music for the discerning:
