Fallout 3 GOTY box key use (PC)

Hello.

I've bought the Fallout 3 GOTY Edition (box) recently for PC and the game is working just fine but I don't know what the key/game code is for that has come with it. I have never been asked to enter it anywhere. Is it for Steam, Windows LIVE or something?

Thanks in advance.

  1. In my recent CD buys, the key has been on the back page of the manual and seemed to be stamped on. It should've asked you for it before you installed it. Maybe in the launcher?

    I've tried the launcher, too. Still nothing. I've got 2 discs (original game is on the 1st and all of the DLC on the 2nd) but not the manual. The key is stamped on the cover picture from the back (the box is transparent and the key can only be seen when I remove the 2nd disc from the box. It says: 'Keycode (if blank, not required)' and the key itself is below this text.

    Well, if you are playing the game just fine I wouldn't worry about it. But, if the game asks you for it you know where it is.

    I guess you are right. Thank you for the help.

    The key is entered in the Games For Windows Live menu and lets you tie the title to a Live account. Now that GFWL is being phased out, the code is pretty much useless, unlike Arkham Assylum and City where without GFWL you couldn't save (though doing some hex editing fixes that).
