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.
Pretty sure I've seen that on sale for $5 or so before on steam.

Edit:

Yep,

Look at the icon of the chart there, and click the little > on the right.
Its been $5 or less 4 times, including twice this year, the most recent one for an entire weekend during the haloween sale.

Edit 2:
In fact, blue has linked NINE sales in the on sale section of the site listed in the past couple years where the game has been on sale for $5 (not just steam but other places).

So, maybe try checking on blues occasionally, even if you don't check out steam weekend sales


Edit 3:
And of course google turned up this

It will email you when a price on a steam game drops to your specified amount. Haven't tried it, I'll give it a go for skyrim.
That also offers a steam price history function.
