I have FO3:GOTY boxed version and it can be played without ever logging on to GFWL. For that matter, once patched using standalone updates, the game can be run without disc as well, by using the fallout3 executable directly instead of the launcher application.

It's the best version of the game when run in this manner - not saddled with Steam, GFWL or any other DRM mechanism.

I think it's always been like that. I had the original boxed version from release day, then I bought the GOTY boxed version later because it was $5 cheaper than buying all the DLC. The disk check was only on the launcher, and neither one required the disk when running from the Fallout3.exe.
