Steam sucks but so does this game

Summary: Had to load Steam in order to play the game. I'd never encountered this before, so I thought at first this was an online platform so I could launch the game from the Cloud or something similar. Turned out I was wrong. Every time I started the game, Steam would download updates and some bloatware. I'd later delete the bloatware, but next time I started Skyrim, the bloatware was back!
Summary: It's still a fun game to play, just think of it as an expansion for oblivion. Because that's all it pretty much is.
Pros: Fun Gameplay
Cons: In order to play Skyrim on PC you have to install and run it through Steam. This is a MAJOR inconvenience and is completely unessessary for consumers. Now I have Steam running in the background taking up 25,000 k of memory. And every time I shut down Skyrim I have to shut down steam separately. The game itself is not much different than Oblivion. Personally, I like oblivion better. The graphics are the same, gameplay minus two tweak (casting a spell requires a spell t...
Summary: I just bought it from Gamestop and no one tried it yet I have bad news don't cache anything it will lock up and if you don't cache it willjust get worse the guy will be stuck jumping in one place and wont be able to move its totally screwed, that sad part Bethesdia already knew itI went on youtube to complain about it and people already said Bethesdia knew that befor they sold it to ya :( this game don't work and I bought it new..
Summary: Their customer service sucks. I work in customer service myself and I understand it's a busy work load, especially in the call center, and there's a limit to what they can do, but honestly how simple would it be to retrieve my product key? I've emailed all the proof they would require...
Pros: No pros yet. Couldn't even install the game. I can't wait to write a real review on the game itself!
Cons: My fiance bought this game for me with a few others. When I opened it to install the game, I found there was no product key or steam access code. I emailed Bethesda to retrieve a product key, but I've still not received a response after countless emails. I can't call them because I'm at work during their open hours. I'm really disappointed in their packaging and customer service.
Summary: Not at all! First, this game is OVER 2 YEARS OLD - don't matter about the last expansion in August - and still sales WAY over the value disc price doing average days. Second, the main game has a 75% off sale today - 12/12/13 - but the LE with ONLY add-ons has a less discount of ONLY 66%? Third, with all the very poor graphics visuals - everyone don't use exploited mods - Bethesda still haven't added a graphics package to enhance the game.
Summary: I loved Skyrim, but I HATE Steam. Those people don't know what customer service is. I loaded it all, registered, etc. Everything was fine for a few hours of play, and then it simply froze up. I had to re-boot the computer, and then "Steam" wouldn't re-start. I tried all my considerable computer tricks to no avail, so I opened a trouble ticket - three different times and was never able to re-open or re-install Steam or use my Skyrim DVD again. I returned it for a refund.
