Really just a Steam installer w/ a free Skyrim DL code

Summary: I bought this to get an actual physical copy of Skyrim so I would not need to download it. What I got was a disc to install Steam and a code to download Skyrim digitally. Not a copy of the game as the package appears to contain.
Summary: I bought this game because I wanted to have a hard copy in case anything happens to my computer at any point, so when I the game arrived I was impressed, it was in good condition and seemed to work well until of course I got to the steam activation, see the copy I got was already registered on...

Summary: This is not a disc loaded version of the game. A Steam account is required to get the game. Shame on the game industry and a double shame on Steam. The packaging of the game is very deceptive.
Summary: Although I love the game, Skyrim, I hate that Bethesda Softworks has joined with steam. I bought disks to avoid having to download, I didn't realize (and it was not mentioned in my Legendary copy, careful inspection was required to see the steam requirement for this copy) that this is actually a...
