Dartagnan, will you please sleep this over and rephrase it a bit?
I'm not sure what's to rephrase.

Whether I actually play Skyrim or not is irrelevant. The only thing they want to know is whether it's a financial success, so that they can "safely" invest in similar things in the future.

That's about the only certainty of the business aspect, and the principle you can be absolutely assured is the most widespread in this industry - as in all others.

However, there's still the wildcard called the actual developers

If you want to believe that launching from Steam makes a difference to the suits, then that's your business. The thing they CAN get from it, is that the more people launching from Steam - the more people are ok with having a slow piece of shit client taking up memory whilst playing games

So if you want Steam to be more popular, then by all means keep launching from it.
