Um you should not need to by pass steam, just change your steam password and it should boot whoever is using your account since only 1 person can be logged in at any given time. I think even the retail product uses steam...

Because the game when you install it registers with your steam account so you cannot trade it in. If you bought it used then you wouldn't even be able to install it.

Nope - he should've never sold it. Broke the TOS. Once it's installed and registered its in their steam account.

Contact him for a refund.

I agree.

Take it back and tell them that they can't resell games that can only be activated once.

This must be a magical "fly by night", "here today gone tomorrow" store that doesn't print receipts cause it's selling illegal games... store. (lee)

If you pirate it you're really no more in the right than if you just did that in the first place.

You could try emailing Steam and telling them you bought the game new, the serial says it's in use and you want to play. They will ask you to take a picture of the package and serial and send it to them. They might at that point disable the person who sold it's account and give it to you. Serves that dude right IMO.

Just submit a Steam support ticket... tell them you bought the game at a local independent video game store and it was marked as new. Send them a picture of the package and serial key... ask them why it isn't working.

Do NOT tell them you bought it used on ebay, because they will tell you to screw off.

Will do. you got a link to send this ticket?
