Windows 7: Fallout 3 on Windows 7 x64

Fallout 3 on Windows 7 x64

Fallout 3 GoTY crashes on startup. Nothing but black screen shows up before it crashes. I bought it on Steam.
I was able to play the game from disk and not GoTY, without any DLCs about a year ago on the same system - Windows 7 x64. I bought the game recently because I lost my disk. I've reinstalled Windows in the meantime once.
I've got DirectX installed when launching games on Steam, also installed using a webinstall from MS website recently, so it's up-to-date. There is no other game that crashes too. My Nvidia drivers are latest version also.
I've tried reinstalling the game but it still didn't work. I've tried deleting F3 folder from My Documents which also didn't help.
I've tried compatibility modes and "Run as Administrator" function, neither did help.
I haven't changed anything in my hardware so it's not hardware-related.

What might be the problem?

Try disabling the Steam Community In-Game. Library > Fallout 3 GOTY > Properties > Untick 'Enable Steam Community In-Game'.

Exit Steam, go to Computer>C>Program Files (x86)>Steam>steamapps>common>fallout 3>run fallout3.exe

Pretty much running the game without steam.

Pray tell me how running games without Steam would help?
