How can I play Skyrim without Steam?

I've bought Skyrim and it's installed etc. but Steam takes up too much space to be running at the same time as Skyrim.

Is there any way to play Skyrim without having Steam open?

    U can play without Steam. There are no-Steam files which u copy over which lets the game run without any involvement with Steam.

    The files are hosted on various websites, and also torrents have them. They are small, so downloading them takes only a few moments.

    Once u have the no-Steam files, u just replace the original files in your Skyrim install folder with the ones of the same name from the no-Steam set.

    If u install and run the game without Steam, u won't get achievements or trophies (unless u mod the game), and u can't download stuff from Steam Workshop without being connected to Steam (no big deal there either since all the good mods come from "" anyway).
