Fallout 3 finally got rid of the scourge of Games For Windows Live

Microsoft’s Games For Windows Live, launched in 2007, is a slandered game launcher designed to unite PC and Xbox Live users. This means the achievements of Xbox on PC, the Xbox social features on PC, but more relevantly, the poorly handled and poorly maintained user interface. Interestingly, Microsoft even thought of the idea of ​​imposing subscription fees on PC users, ala Xbox Live Gold on the console. That was quickly abandoned.

PC users have never been enthusiastic about this service, which was discontinued in 2014. Since then, droves of publishers and developers have begun to separate GFWL dependencies from their games. It’s worth noting that even Dark Souls: Ready to Die also removed GFWL from it, even though it was one of the last high-profile games launched on the service.
