There can be issues mostly

There can be issues mostly with getting Fallout 3 to run once for the installer, but that's easily fixed.

With windows 10 you want to avoid installing games into Program Files (you can set steam to let you choose where to install).

The primary thing to remember

The primary thing to remember is to install NVAC. The W10 Aniversary update makes Fallout crash unless you have NVAC.

Problem with Fallout 3 is

Problem with Fallout 3 is GFWL won't install, so you have to do some trickery to get GFWL Disabler installed. This is easy though, just create Documents\My Games\Fallout3 folder and put a copy of fallout_default.ini in there from the root Fallout 3 folder and rename it Fallout.ini. You can then install GFWL disabler, then delete that Fallout.ini you made and use the default launcher as normal.

No, that was fixed ages ago via Windows Update. Windows 10 AU does not break this game.

Huh, that must be why the forum went from two to four posts per day about it for weeks to nothing in the last couple months. I was wondering about that. I figured people were just finally reading the stickies for a change.

Because of some changes

Because of some changes inside Windows 10 you will not be able to take full advantage of ENBoost:

I also have some stuttering I cannot seem to get rid of even with the stutter remover, enabling / disabling vsync, with / without ENB etc. When using NVAC the stuttering (when looking around, so texture swapping issues may be?) gets even worse. Cannot remember having these issues when I used Windows 7. My Windows 10 installed automatically while away from my computer (I always disable auto-install of Windows updates, but still).

You could set up dual-boot with Windows 7. I tried that, but my other Windows licenses suddenly do not work anymore.

Note that Fallout (and many other games, especially older ones) runs better with higher clock speeds. If you are not doing workstation stuff you may want to look into lesser cores but higher clock speeds. I think, but am not sure, that in the case of memory higher clock speeds are preferred over lower latency (you may want to look that up).
