I only have the GOG version...

How does the GOG version run? ..& what OS are you using to test?

i remember running it recently and it would crash. odly, just having 1 core enabled was the fix. so it has some bugs but i believe there is a fix. as far as fps is concerned, no trouble at all.

So it's a single core/thread game. I will give it a go on dual core, currently downloading (GOG version)

To be fair, it's been a while and I don't currently have it installed. Let's put it this way, if you are playing at 1080P and you have a GTX670, GTX680 or better you will have a solid experience. I never had framerate issues or crashes.

So it's a single core/thread game.
I don't think that's right. I believe FO3 is SMP enabled.

Fallout New Vegas is closer to an actual Fallout game.
And that one is excellent too!

OK, did look kind of strange as to why Final_Fighter (Post 9,501) would run the game in single core mode to get the best out of it.

It's nice that there's no 60 fps cap unlike The Crew 2.

The only thing I dislike is XboxLive and they want you to use a M$ account....:ohwell:

I hope it's worth it. Looking at videos and reviews it seems it is..

According to the steam version Fallout 3 does not run very well on windows 7 or higher Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition on Steam (steampowered.com)

Whoever buys this game can you give feedback on FPS as the GOG version may run better..
For both 3 and NV (Steam Versions) I recall having to do some tweaking to get them to run relatively stable on W10. Believe compatibility mode was involved, maybe some config tweaking too.

I've had FH4 for a while now, from well before it was on steam. Gorgeous game, easy to get good frame rates on, and (imo) a really fun driving model. It uses a variation of their mainline Forza series model, so cars still move fairly realistically, but drifting at 250mph is also possible. Very different from games like the crew, where to me it felt like what the car was doing had no connection to what I was telling it to do.

I like it! I played over 3 hours just after downloading so I can't get a refund anymore on Steam... It's better than The Crew 2 imo.
The only thing I hope it can be fixed somehow, the occasional stutters.. However The Crew 2 wasn't stutter-free either.

Heading this off at the pass. Don't let this turn into a discussion of whether or not Steam is a form of DRM. thanks guys!!

Are they? Didn't know that. Still, one has to use the Steam Client to install and moving Steam installations to a custom folder can be a pain. GOG is much easier.

nop.
it's not rare to have it for 6-7$ on gog.
12$ for major expansions (apocalypse, utopia and mega corp) is ok. species packs are at very good price atm except the newest one.
federations is still not low enough

Gamesplanet have a Spring sale with Watch Dogs 2 season pass at 80% off, as well as the main game. I had a Cheapshark notification on the season pass which worked exactly as intended because I certainly wasn't going to pay $40 for a dlc.

Just tried buying this, but when I go to register an account it just gives me an error and says this website can't access cookies.. weird. I even made sure to make it that Chrome accepted its cookies and turned off ublock origin... still wouldn't work. RIP good deals

Well that's weird. Have you tried another browser?
I just snagged Far Cry 4 to add to my collection as they have 80% off many games now.
