Updated the list. Would be interested in anyones thoughts.

Testing method:

1. Delete the steamapi files, create a steam_appid.txt file, try launching the game and see if steam runs.
2. Try Steamless. Most games this works on do not need Steam but some still do so you may need to still use a Steam wrapper.
3. Use SmartSteamEmu. This will run most steam games as of today.
4. For older games try LumaEmu.
4. Search the internets for files for your specific game version. This can be time intensive.
5. For the newest games try Goldberg Lan Steam Emu

I find your threads useful and informative. Why would this one go away? Did someone complain?

SIS installer (google for it) is able to install your old steam retail copies, you can then use steamless or the aforementioned emulators. Very handy to play for ex, the 1st release of Half Life 2.
