All Gog.com games are coming to Steam. What's going on?

Newest additions were Anachronox and I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream. Is something happening behind the scenes?

Probably just Valve realizing that there is money to be made from selling old games. There are also people who would prefer to have all their games in Steam rather than have to rely on GOG, even though GOG is very far from being cumbersome.

To The Moon
Omikron
Blood Omen 2
Postal 2
All of the Thief's if I'm not mistaken. Same for Fallout 1 and 2. Could be wrong though.

Is Anachronox the GoG version or just a half arsed release of the original? Because I still have the disks and that game will not run on modern machines, Period. And I'd rather have it on steam.

A few of the GOG games I've seen on Steam...

Anachronox
Sacrifice
Thief 1 & 2
Postal 1 & 2
Fallout 1 & 2
VtM Bloodlines
Bloodrayne 1 & 2
Jade Empire
System Shock 2
Deus Ex 1 & 2
The Longest Journey
To The Moon
Jagged Alliance 2
Septerra Core
Arx Fatalis
Roller Coaster Tycoon 3
Commandos 2 & 3
Duke Nukem Manhattan Project
Enclave
Sacred 1 & 2
Tomb Raider 1, 2, and 3
Spellforce 1 & 2

And I could add a ton more. It's quite obviously more than "two games." I have noticed for a while that Valve has been slowly but steadily acquiring these older games and putting them on Steam. TC's observations do have some substance.
