It’s not steam’s fault (at least not exclusively). Most games can be played fine if you go offline can’t they?
Something interesting, if this is an option for you OP, it does seem to work if you first put steam into offline mode (which you should then be able to keep it on for the most part). So if you do that when you don’t have an internet connection then maybe it will work?
