Fallout 3 isn't working, help please?
So i bought fallout 3, and i was pretty excited because i had it for xbox/sold it in. Well i click "play" when im in my steam library, it gives me the product code, i click "ok" then that screen with a brotherhood powerarmor comes up and it says "play" "options" "Data files" "tech Support" and "exit" on the right side, i click play, and nothing happens. ill be damned if the tech support was any help, you can't get ♥♥♥♥ done on their website. so yes, if anybody has the same problem as me, and has fixed it, help would be appreciated.

There's a topic "Fixed for Win7 & Win8" ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/22300/discussions/0/846940248939773278/ ) on the front page of this forum. have you seen/tried it? If it still won't work, try to start it (as described in the topic) via fallout3.exe and see if there's a specific error message.

Thanks for all your help guys, it works perfectly now. i've experianced one crash, and i find that the windows launcher is somewhat annoying, but i dont mind if it means i get to play one of my favorite games again =D thanks again guys.
