    You do need Steam, which is a free download, to run Skyrim, unless you download a crack for Skyrim to circumvent Steam.

    But after the initial activation via Steam online, and likely an update already which will automatically download, you can have Steam restart in offline mode and never have to connect to the Steam server when playing Skyrim.

    But, whenever you start Skyrim the Steam program will start, asking every time whether you want offline or online mode, and you'll have to select offline mode, assuming it works exactly as it does for Fallout: New Vegas, which I'm sure it will.

    No you don't have to If you own a copy, but you can type the key onto steam if you want to download it from steam

    So we do or don't? got one guy saying we do another says we don't. I need to know because right now im not in a place where I can update games on my steam account, the internet where I am at is, lets say, below 56k . quite a pity i know, but i have no choice.

    No, you don't need Steam.

    However I have no idea why you don't have Steam downloaded already. Go on, it's free.
