Gog Galaxy is bundled for games having online play. But you don't have to use it, nor you have to have it installed to play any game. Steam is a DRM by itself, most games require either being launch from Steam or having Steam being installed.

I don't like that to support online play, a Gog game has to use Gog Galaxy. But that's entirely radically different than the vendor lock-in Steam has.

In any case, my comment wasn't 'other game distributors are better than Steam'. It was 'I don't like Steam'. I've had it installed and I prefer to never use it again, despite the amount of free games it offers.
