Fallout 3 finally freed from Games For Windows Live scourge

Launched in 2007, Microsoft’s Games For Windows Live was a maligned game launcher designed to unite PC and Xbox Live users. That meant Xbox achievements on PC, Xbox social features on PC, but more pertinently, dealing with a terrible and poorly maintained user interface. Amusingly, Microsoft even toyed with the idea of imposing a subscription cost for PC users, ala Xbox Live Gold on consoles. That was quickly abandoned.

PC users never warmed to the service, and it was discontinued in 2014. Since then, droves of publishers and developers have moved to detach GFWL dependencies from their games. Notably, even Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition got the GFWL torn out of it, despite being among the last high-profile games to launch on the service.
