A surprise update was released by Bethesda today for Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition on Steam! Update 1.7.0.4 finally allows the game to launch and removes Games for Windows Live software from the game. Check out the patch notes below:

Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition has been updated and no longer installs Games for Windows Live dependencies. If Fallout 3 was previously installed on Steam, we suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the title.
