Default logging in to Google to download apps

Why do some free android apps require that you log in to Google to download them and some do not (like Opera browser and some others for example?)
Is it possible to download without logging in, which is sometimes inconvenient?

Thank you

I'm pretty sure if you're downloading through the play store you have to log in for every app. Not sure how you managed to bypass the login with opera. You should only have to log in once though.

OP, can you list an example of an app that requires the Google log in? I think I know what you mean, but I would like to see it to be sure.
