You can use OpenGL to render a game in 2D. If you're looking to make a 2D game, and don't want the user to have "Required Files" per-say, try using a very old version of DirectDraw that will still suit your needs (DX6, DX5). It's nearly gauranteed that all windows based computers will have it. (If not, just program it in DX7, and include the DX7 Runtime files with your install.)

there are no required files for opengl either (except graphics card drivers, but you can pretty much expect your user to have those)
