In theory, the motive of the guy making the video game is to maximize his profit by making a game cool enough for me to want it but not so cool that it is too expensive.

And how about this "charitable" organization's motive?
"Do enough good that people support my cause but not so much good that it cuts into my profit."

Perhaps there is a place for such an organization, but I'm not sure I'd call it charity.
