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: 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: 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.
Summary: It comes as no surprise to me that this game is one of the most beautiful things I've ever played, with a dynamic melee combat system that runs circles around the flailing madness from earlier elder scrolls games.
Cons: Steam is such an obstruction, forcing advertizing and commercials down your throat, it ruins the game. After an hour and a half I finally got to start the game but it seems every time you start the game you have to go through the Steam hoops
