Steam is not supported in CrossOver on Chrome OS. The portion of the Steam app page on our web-site which is relevant to this is the 'one star' rating for Steam on Chrome OS, which has the explanation underneath showing that 'one star' means 'will not install' (admittedly, maybe that should be zero stars, but then it's hard to distinguish from a situation where we simply haven't gotten any ratings).
Is there somewhere else you are seeing that says Steam should work in CrossOver on a Chromebook? If you see such a thing it likely means we have edits to make: Steam is definitely not supported on Chrome OS.

We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
