Launcher for games
I'm a pretty heavy gamer, and I'm a fan of using a very organized and minimalist computer. I used to use Steam to launch games, but some games don't work with it. I then tried using the Game explorer, with it set in the Start Menu to pop out when I hover over it. This was messy and didn't work with Steam games. (Even with a nice application called Steam Assistance, several games weren't recognized and wouldn't launch.) So I'd like to just use a bunch of aliases in folders. Putting them in the start menu requires either too many clicks or too much scrolling, depending on how I organize. So I'd like a launcher, but I'm overwhelmed by options.
Right now I have a folder in the start menu called Games. Inside that -
I would like each of those subfolders to be displayed on the right side of the screen, allowing me to select a folder, have it open, potentially open a subfolder (Such as adding Tower Defense to Strategy or Space to Vehicular) and then select a game to launch. Right click options such as Vista's Game explorer used to allow me to create easily (PITA in Seven) would be AMAZINGLY appreciated, but not a requirement.
Parabolic zoom or whatever other animations are an annoyance, I would want to be able to turn them off in favor of something more subtle. I do NOT want it to be a dock, the difference that a dock keeps track of running applications as well as shortcuts. All I've been able to find thus far are things like RocketDock, and that's not what I'm after.
I would like a launcher that does the following: *Asterisks indicate optional*

Free launch bar will work for that;
Free Launch Bar - Free replacement for standard Quick Launch
The full version has more options;
True Launch Bar • Superior replacement for standard Quick Launch
If you use "Send to toys" ;

then you can set the context "Send to" menu to immediately send any application, folder etc. to the launch bar, no further setup required. You can also simply drag and drop whatever you want.
