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.
You always see this tossed (There are TONS of games on Steam without DRM because all the indie games I download don't have DRM and because I specifically don't download those games...) around like the people bitching about DRM on steam don't have a legit concern.
SteamSpy lists 12,805 games on steam.This page _of_DRM-free_games lists roughly 650+ or so games that can be run without Steam either by running the executable or doing some extra work to make it run without Steam (no cracks mentioned).
While I have no doubt that the List of DRM free games is no where near complete we can probably agree that the DRM free games on steam is nowhere near 1,000+ games.....but yeah there are hundreds of DRM free games on steam.

There are many sources, including games, movies, and music; even jokes that have developed within the game and its community have been included. Below are references specific to the Soldier class. Most of these references come from the military and military related media, in keeping with his character.
Melodies Return[Page 189]Impressions, Memories and Evaluationsby Reuven MelamedTranslated from Hebrew by Nida KialiNature had gifted Mizoch with unimaginable riches, evergreen forests, a most fertile land, rivers and lakes full of fish, and an astonishing good climate.The Jews in town – like in all other places where Jews lived – engaged chiefly in commerce. A few earned a living from crafts and services and were an essential and substantial part of the economy.The Jews had good neighborly relations with the Ukrainian, Polish, Russian and Czech residents. While their attitude towards the Ukrainians was rather dismissive because of their ignorance, their attitude towards the Czech was one of respect and sympathy. The Czechs' forefathers arrived in the vicinity of Mizoch about a hundred years ago, naked and impoverished, and were given barren soil from the government of the Russian czar, and neglected and forested land. They began uprooting the trees and preparing the land to be sown, and after years of intense labor, they turned their land into a luscious garden. The Czech villages excelled in their tidiness, beautiful houses, and blooming gardens, and they stood out due to their rich culture and high standard of living.Almost all Czechs were rich and their villages stood in great contrast to the poverty-infested Ukrainian villages, where drunkenness prevailed and ignorance ruled. The Czech villages had model schools, drama troupes, bands, and various cultural and sports societies. They had given their youth education and knowledge and nurtured the values of their national culture and of the Czech language.The Ukrainians were fiercely jealous of the Czechs but dared not lay a finger on them, for they knew the danger of provoking or harming a Czech person.The Czechs were never patronizing toward their ignorant Ukrainian neighbors. On the contrary, they were always ready to share their experience and know-how about the farmland with their Ukrainian neighbors and teach them how to tend to the farming machines. They also knew how to raise sheep and cattle successfully and nurture fruit trees not indigenous to that location. They were never stagnant and were always interested in growing new species and plants. In this manner, they managed to pioneer and institute the growing of hops and clovers that were much needed for the developing industry, and these crops gave them great wealth. The bonds between the affluent Czechs and the Jews were tight and were beneficial to both sides.The people of Mizoch were kind, caring, and always ready to lend a hand to those in need. With great generosity, they would give the needy help and aid – in a manner that would not cause disrespect. [Page 190]Sometimes it happened that an impoverished family refused a handout, and the experienced donors knew how to give their support in a way unknown to the receiver. Among those businessmen, I especially remember Rabbi Jonah Nemirover and among the women, Golda Chaim Yusis and Mirka, the rabbi's daughter. The number of those dealing with public affairs was great in Mizoch, but these were the ones that encouraged and urged those good deeds.Many times, the Jews clashed with the law or the government and faced a heavy monetary penalty or incarceration. Here they were the beneficiary of the wisdom and prerogative of the experienced shtadlan Rabbi Aaron Shnerick. He was like a member of the household of the pristav (the head of police) and knew how to bribe him and his officers and save Jews from all sorts of troubles and wrongdoings. Moreover, he managed to get the police to defend the Jews from all kinds of brutes and hooligans.The danger was especially great for the Jews during times when local youth were recruited into the army; they would get inebriated, roam around the stores and take whatever they wanted without pay. They would also turn over shopping stands, and trample and beat Jews to their heart's desire. The police would turn a blind eye to these actions, and when the Jews complained, they would say that these boys were going to the front lines to die for their country and must be allowed to let off some steam. You Jews will lose some of your belongings, while they might lose their lives. Even if some kike gets beaten up, these follies should be ignored. Let the boys have their fun.The new recruits always knew to pick on the weak Jews, and if they mistakenly came across young guys, they would get a beating and were thrown out of the store or tavern in disgrace.Once a group of young recruits entered Flitter's kiosk, drank lemonade, and not only did they not pay, but they also started breaking the glasses and the furniture. Flitter had four young and strong sons, who subdued the hooligans and broke their bones. The hooligans called their friends for help, but they too were badly beaten and ran for their lives. A rumor spread among the recruits that the Jews were beating up the Pravoslavs. The police came and blamed the Jews for attacking the protectors of the Pravoslav homeland. All the evidence given was to no avail, and the whole thing could have ended in disaster, if it wasn't for Aaron Shnerick, who tipped the balance with the police in our favor with a decent bribe.The police held the highest authority in the small towns, and the pristav who led it was an omnipotent ruler. Since Rabbi Aaron Shnerick could always bribe[Page 191]the pristav, the Jews in Mizoch were left to their own devices.And then, in the year 1915, a new pristav came to our midst. He was a short man, with an imposing figure, wearing glasses and radiating pride. He invited the local dignitaries and told them he would not be prejudiced against any man and that it was his job to maintain law and order. All those who break the law will be punished to the full extent by him, and he is the last arbiter, for God resides in heaven, and the emperor lives afar in Moscow or Petrograd. The Jews left in mourning, for they knew that even Rabbi Aaron could not help them this time, for this was a new pristav. A few brave ones tried to give the pristav expensive gifts the next day as a sign of goodwill, but they were expelled with disgrace and with a threat that if they ever attempted to bribe him again, they would stand trial.The whole town was disheartened, and all were told of the bitter news that “Er nemt nisht”[2[,meaning the new pristav does not accept bribes. How could they live when local youth were recruited into the army? They turned to Rabbi Aaron out of great desperation and begged him to save them and try to bribe the aggressor. Rabbi Aaron calmed them down and advised them to be extremely careful and try not to break any laws. He promised them that in due time he would crack that hard nut, but for now, they must have patience.Rabbi Aaron began befriending the pristav and visited him using all sorts of reasons, and slowly became his friend and frequent visitor to his home. He would tell him about the pristavs who came to Mizoch penniless and left with great fortune. The pristav's wife would listen to these stories and utter a sigh. Once Rabbi Aaron took courage and asked the pristav why he didn't try to get rich and lived only on his small pay. The officer became angry with Rabbi Aaron and told him that he swore allegiance to the emperor to be loyal and do no foul. He wanted and would prefer to stay poor rather than break his solemn oath to the emperor and God. Rabbi Aaron explained himself and said bribing him didn't even come to mind, and he greatly appreciated his honesty and loyalty to the emperor. “But tell me, please,” added Rabbi Aaron, “did your wife also swear allegiance to the emperor?” The pristav understood the hint, and his face brightened: “That's it,” he said, “and I didn't even know there was a way out of this situation.”Ever since then, the Jews of Mizoch were once again at peace. The pristav kept his word, and his wife received the bribe. Before any request to cancel a decree, Rabbi Aaron gave the pristav warm regards from his wife, and his appeal was promptly taken care of. Eventually, the Jews benefited from this pristav more than from the former. He even protected[Page 192]deserters, and for a monthly payment to him and his officers, they could walk about without fear.One time, the Cossacks and the military police came to town searching for deserters. The peasants turned the Cossacks against the Jews and told them that the Jews hid their wares from the peasants and refused to sell, just hoarding money and evading the front lines. The peasants especially complained about the iron store owners, who sold plows, sickles, and other tools and now claimed they were out of stock. The Jews avoided selling their goods for several reasons. First, they feared robberies and riots. Second, inflation was at its peak at that time, the value of money plummeted, and new merchandise was hard to come by. As the day unfolded, the peasants mentioned Feigele Melamed-Nemirover's cellar, which was loaded with goods, and asked the Cossacks to break into it. They immediately started to do so. The basement was heavily fortified, had an iron door, and could not be easily breached. Feigele's son rushed to the pristav and asked for his help. The pristav ordered his officers to go and round up the Cossacks and bring them to him. The officers weren't keen on following that order, as they were ordered to retrieve the Cossacks by force if necessary. However, they feared disobeying their master's orders even more. The officers arrived at the scene on time before the assailants could breach the basement. They quickly dispersed the peasants and ordered the Cossacks to follow them to the pristav. The Cossacks cursed the officers and blamed them for protecting the Jewish profiteers exploiting the Pravoslav people. The officers stood their ground and held the Cossacks at gunpoint. Two of them mounted their horses and fled. Due to his arrogance or lack of choice, the third one confronted the pristav. The pristav and the Cossack had a bitter argument, as the Cossack bluntly told the pristav that while he was fighting on the front lines, the pristav sat at the rear and was in cahoots with the Jews and was getting fat. However, the pristav was not alarmed and ordered the Cossack to surrender his weapon. The Cossack refused, and the pristav proceeded to take his arms by force. At that point, the Cossack fell at the pristav's feet, begged for forgiveness and for his weapon to be returned. The pristav complied, and the Cossack rode away from Mizoch in disgrace.The day of the revolution came. Rumors came to the town of the emperor's defeat and the rise of a new regime, but Mizoch still ran as usual. The pristav was the local lord with the police at his aid. Some tension filled the air, but it did not alter the regular course of life.I remember a warm and nice Passover evening. The snow had thawed, the sun was shining, [Page 193]and the town was covered with mud. The pristav took a pleasant stroll on a sidewalk next to Rabbi Moses's house, and everyone tipped their hat at him as a sign of honor and cleared a path for him. Suddenly a young man of 17 came towards him, grabbed his suspenders, forcibly removed them, and shoved the pristav into a ditch. The young man left and the pristav was pulled from the ditch by Rabbi Moses and his wife. They took the pristav into their home, brought him water and soap, and cleaned the mud off him. The pristav was very depressed and kept mumbling about an upcoming holocaust. Since then, they all knew that the evil reign of the house of Romanoff was indeed defeated, and that the future was unclear and full of mystery. 2b1af7f3a8
