Now I obviously know that Steam itself does not work on Windows 98, not since 2007. However, there are games that originally came out for windows 9x (Half-Life, Team Fortress Classic, Counter Strike, etc.) that can be bought on Steam. Is there anyway to play those games that are bought on steam on 98 without the steam interface? I also have the original retail versions of those games, and so far, the only way to play those games online is through the unofficial WON2 service. As much as I enjoyed playing on those servers, they are limited and not many people play on them. To play on the current servers for those games, you need to have the steam versions.
Recently, I downloaded an unofficial non-steam version of Counter Strike 1.6 (steam version) from this website.

It works on Windows 98 and I am able to play on the servers listed on game tracker.
I wish there was something similar for Half-Life and Team Fortress Classic.
