Skyrim is a Steamworks game, so pretty much everyone who bought it shows up on the Steam count. The AC games aren't Steamworks games, so only the people who bought the games through Steam show up on the Steam count. Granted, I've little doubt Skyrim has far more people playing than all the AC games combined anyway, but using Steams numbers isn't a fair comparison.

Considering we are having a discussion about Steam sales, I think using Steam numbers would be an entirely fair comparison. If people buy their games somewhere other than Steam, they aren't going to show up on Steam's top ten list, now are they?
