Well, it just says "to have," not "to require." Steam has always-on connectivity, but it doesn't require it. It enjoys it, though, as it allows publishers to use Steamworks to really dive into how customers are playing their game. That's the kind of data a nerd like me lives for.

Also, why would you need to keep hundreds of games? I have hundreds of games on Steam. I don't "keep" them. I install them when I want them, uninstall them when I finish them, and possibly go back to them but, honestly, that's incredibly rare. 90% of games I'll never return to. 8% of that remainder are games like Civ that will live on my HDD. and that leaves maybe 2% of games I'll play through and actually go back to in a year or 5. These days that's even less common as I don't have enough time to play new stuff, let alone return to things I've played already.
Music for the discerning:
