Fallout 3 for PC, when I have no X-box ? Why do I have to read 10,000 pages of crap to find a solution to installing/running it?

Kindly tell me what is going on.

I bought Fallout 3 for PC (Game of the Year Edition) this week (October 2013).

I have a new i7 Sabertooth PC running Windows 8.1 x64. ALL other games work great.

I installed it today (both discs). I got some usual "Are you sure you want ti install message).

I tried to run the game (after it auto-set to ultra settings)... and then I got error message 80154002.

I think I have to have an X-box account?

Who knows? Is it some secret Microsoft mystery?

I have a gmail acocunt and tried to put those details in but it strings me along and sends me form one place to another and confuses me as to what the heck I am supposed to do.

Who thinks such crap up at MS; all I want to do is have an hours gaming, not go through some fifteen hour marathon of account setting-up and compatibility computing.

So. Please. One you you kind souls....

Share the Microsoft rotten secret... "How do I get Fallout 3 working; given the above?

P.S.

I tried to put the game code in on Steam but it booted it. So I assume it is not a steam game.

Microsoft; this is how I feel... "qaswelunvgybi8ropyjbnvm@eq9noubhw-m@e[ogrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

P.S.

When I go on the click a link on the "GAMES FOR WINDOWS Marketplace" box in the middle of my computer screen,

I click ;-

"WINDOWS LIVE I.D." (because it indicates my gmail account and/or password is not valid repeatedly [even though I am online with my gmail account also now])

.......................................... but, when I click "Windows Live I.D."........... it sends me to a blank web page..... e.g.

(accountservices.passport.net/ppnetworkhome.srf)

........with the message "THIS WEBSITE IS NOT AVAILABLE".

Are Microsoft just here to destroy peoples sanity?

What further annoying unneccesary hoops do I have to jump through?

Ah; One secret uncovered....

..............It isn`t my googlemail account it wants; ..........its my Hotmail account.

Thanks for keeping that a secret to annoy your customers Microsoft.

Also; I have the account page up (with my old MS Flight Sim X game on it which I `forgot` about` and which refused to work on Windows 8.1 when I first installed it last month) but am unable to put this `new` game on the list.
