Steam Inventory

I recently purchased a copy of Crysis (not through Steam) , and I wanted to use the serial key to add Crysis to my Steam Inventory. Does anyone know how I can do that? Tyvm!

No, you can't.
Only games purchased directly through Steam can be added to the inventory and stored for a later trade.

You can't. Only certain games allow you to activate retail copies on Steam (either they have to be Steamworks games, or publisher has to permit it).

There is a (somewhat outdated) list of these titles here:

What titles are missing from the article? I'll notify the appropriate Valve employee immediately.
