Every legit game is activated on Steam. Period.

Obviously not, because my installation had nothing to do with steam.

You can buy Skyrim from anywhere on the planet. Every legit version will be activated on Steam, whether you like it or not. If your game does not activate on Steam, it is not a legit version of the game.

Nope, he's right. It should have asked you to register the game with Steam when you installed it. What you have sounds like a bogus copy.

Might want to have a chat with the seller and ebay.

@alduin777: My apologies for being a bit too... abrasive. Skyrim only comes through Steam. If your copy does not work with Steam, I am afraid that you have been had.

Contact seller on ebay and get a refund; if they refuse, contact ebay.

He already got the game on Steam (the small mouse icon next to the name).

Wasn't there when the conversation started and "my installation had nothing to do with steam.."

Either way it appears to be sorted.
