I don't have either of these devices to test with but it seems odd that they mostly have generic names; is this with the official drivers or just whatever Windows installed automatically? Installing the official software would be a good place to start if you haven't done so yet.
Logitech released a new version of the G-series Logitech Gaming Software just a few days ago which might also help.
EDIT: actually, I'm guessing you ran the Windows 8 installer using these devices for input, in which case it would have definitely seen them and attempted to set up basic drivers. Do these entries reappear if you clear them out? To do this remove all of the HID listings (checking the box to delete the software, if prompted), disconnect both devices, and then install the official software for them (reconnecting them when prompted by the installer). You may need to use a different mouse temporarily to help with this.

It's not surprising, I suppose,

you could use devcon to create different scripts to disable enable the devices you want, etc.
The DevCon command-line utility functions as an alternative to Device Manager
I have issue on work machine where the stupid vpn software they run will throw a fit if you have more than one network connection. So if I need to jump on wireless to vpn into customer network, etc. I have to either unplug my wired interface or disable it.
So I just run a devcon command I put in a batch file - so 2 icons on desktop one disables, other enables.
You could do the same thing for multiple lists of devices, so play game X disable all devices you don't want. Play game Y disable different listing, etc. Then another one to enable them all again, etc. etc.
edit: just thought of another option - since all usb based,
Now I use it for usb based disks, flashdrives, etc. But should work on all usb devices - you could create hot keys to disable the devices you want, etc..
I normally find freeware tools to use, this is one of the few tools I actually paid money for
