since you can only play steam-bought games on steam... there you go.

however, some games and publishers use 3rd party drm, most notably games for windows live(which thankfully is being killed off soon), and as such you have to check on the individiual page of each game to see if it has it or not.

The store page will state whether it requires a 3rd party program to be run coinciding steam.

Some games bought/downloaded through Steam can be run independently of Steam (i.e. exit Steam, browse to the game's directory, and run it directly). This should work for any non-Steamworks game (Steam and Steamworks are not the same thing).

Games that have a third-party DRM requiring sign-in to another service like GFWL or UPlay will usually say so. Other types of DRM may not be mentioned.

^This.

It's surprising how many people don't realize that several games can be launched without Steam running.
