Please don't spread misinformation! Steam really isn't as controlling as some like to think.

Why couldn't you? It's not Ubisoft or an MMO.

This is hurting my brain.

YOU CAN DISABLE STEAM AUTOMATIC UPDATES.

You can when steam is started in online mode. When you restart steam with no internet connection, you cannot play skyrim.

Offline mode for steam only tends to work for me when I pre-set it to offline before hand, so it boots into offline mode.

Besides, I only use offline mode to avoid the patches. My entire campus has a solid wireless connection.

I don't know what you're talking about. I've done just that. You can start Skyrim in offline mode without ever connecting to Steam online.
