It depends on the game - the vast majority of Apple II games were "booters" - you just put it in the drive and start up the computer, and it boots directly in to the game.

A few you loaded from ProDOS, but those were rare.

Nearly all games were booters.  Most of the games I owned that required ProDOS were pirated.  They had 3 or 4 games on a disk.  You'd CATALOG the disk to see the games.  After that you'd BLOAD the game (LOAD if BASIC game), then BRUN (RUN if BASIC) the game.
