You have to have Steam running in order to play the game.

However, you can set Steam to offline mode. You can find information about offline mode here: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...3160-AGCB-2555

No problem.

Curiously, what do you dislike about Steam?

Steam is DRM. Would you rather have more invasive DRM? How about DRM that hacks your computer, like what EA uses (SecuRom). Steam is one of the few DRMs that rewards you for using it, and doesn't treat everyone like a potential thief.

It's not steam that would get ripped off, it's the guys that actually make the games......byebye.

I often play games on my laptop where I do not have an internet connection. If I pay for a game there should be NO DRM! I bought it legitimately. Let me play it without jumping through a zillion hoops. Or I may just turn to piracy because its less of a hassle!

Take a hint from GoG games. You buy them, you install them, they work. No forced internet, no crazy drm schemes. They are DRM Free and they sell like hotcakes!

The thing is, those GoG games are several years old and definitely sell much less than the latest AAA titles.

If Call Of Duty were without any DRM whatsoever, the game would get pirated >90%, with people simply swapping and copying the disks, like it was back in the 1980s and 1990s.

Customers of GoG are dedicated fans and gamer nerd, who would pay for the games anyway.
Digital distributing channels like Steam simply don't put most of the old games on their lists, because sales wouldn't be good enough anyway.
