This is part of the Humble Store's End-of-Summer Sale [humblebundle.com]. There are many more titles on sale, but most prices (e.g. Bethesda's titles) aren't very compelling. I did notice this, though:

Shadows of Mordor GotY Edition [humblebundle.com] - $7.49 (ties a recent low)
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

G2A is a broker for key reselling, not an actual online retailer. You can find someone selling almost any key for less than you can buy it from Steam, Humble, Amazon, etc. You can support G2A if you want, but it has a very dubious rep and isn't an organization that I personally want to support. (I realize that there are probably plenty of legitimate sellers trying to monetize keys from bundles, but I'm not a fan of the practice.)

It's more of an issue for indie developers than it is for consumers. If you were to have an issue, I'm sure G2A would refund your money with minimal hassle and you'd just buy a different key. The real issue is the charge-backs to small independents.

If you want to be educated, you can read one of the plethora of articles on the issue that have been published in the latest couple years:
- Polygon, Feb 2015 [polygon.com]
- TinyBuild, Jan 2016 [tinybuild.com]
- PCGamer, June 2016 [pcgamer.com]
- Kotaku, July 2016 [kotaku.com]

At any rate, one could argue that any online retailer's price for a key is higher than what you could find on G2A. Or almost any physical product and eBay, for that matter.
