GFWL as it was implemented in Fallout 3 is lot better than Steamworks.
...which is why Bethesda is also ditching GFWL in favour of Steamworks for Fallout:New Vegas, hmm?
GFWL is a pile of crap which must have been designed with the explicit purpose of killing PC gaming as quickly as possible. When I bought Gears of War, it took hours to download GFWL patches and restarting the computer (patches for GFWL live that is, not for the game). Two thirds through the game GFWL managed to corrupt the only online save file you are allowed, so I had to restart the game from the beginning (or I would have been forced to, if I hadn't uninstalled it instead and rinsed my harddrive with bleach). Not to mention the headaches it caused people who tried to buy Fallout DLC for the PC version. The DLCs not listed online, problems paying, once downloaded it didn't show up... the problems just went on and on.
When I had a troubles with GFWL for Batman: Arkham Asylum and went to the online help, the first question I got was "What is the color of your XBox, black or white?"
In my opinion, it can't die quickly enough.This comment was edited on Jun 22, 2010, 16:52.
