I'm thinking of buying Elder Scrolls Anthology used. What I'm wondering is, if the old owner happened to use the Steam code already, will I still be able to use it?

  • and fwiw if you have the patience you can wait for a steam sale to pick up any elder scrolls games for deep discounts

Steam keys can only be used once. If the original owner used the product key, you cannot use it.

    Anything with a digital code you should probably not buy used. It's very unlikely the seller didn't use it.

    @GnomeSlice even worse, quite often you need both the code and the discs to play the game, and if the code was used you now have just a nice set of coasters (and the seller no doubt made copies and continues to use those).
