How am I still able to run 32-bit games on Catalina?

Hello, friendly mac user here. I just updated to Catalina for various reasons, but I didn't know I could still play 32-bit games on Mac. I played various visual novels plus geometry dash, papers please, and other apps that are supposed "not supported." Does anyone know why?

Were they updated with a 64-bit binary? There you go.

That's probably why.


Every time I launch my game, It always reminds me and says something like
"Catalina no longer supports 32-bit games" with a prohibition sign. It doesn't say if the game has been updated or anything.

Ah maybe steam still thinks that it doesn’t have a 64bit version then or something

Also, just recently, I tried to play TF2, but it gave me an error saying it can no longer run the game because it is 32 bit.
