Run Steam > Games > Add a Non-Steam Game to My Library

Then launch it through your Games list.

crysis wont run on your sig rig, and also, most likely not able to be hooked up through steam. PLUS, in order to utilize steam chat you have to of purchased a game directly through steam, or a valve game (retail)

Entirely untrue, you can add ANY game to your Steam Library, and almost always be able to use the Steam overlay browser/chat.
(Some games even if bought through Steam, don't support the overlay, e.g. Blood Bowl)

I personally have used it with the following games (none of which I bought through Steam) with zero problems:

EVE Online
Elemental
Dark Messiah
Demigod
Freelancer
Rome: Total War
LOTRO

@ mojosephwu
I haven't tested it with Crysis so it's possible that's an exception to the rule, try adding a different game to Steam and see if it works for you.

If Touhou support the Steam Community overlay (AKA Chat) then there is no way in the dark rectum that Crysis wouldn't be able to do it.

Sig rig on the other hand is questionable
