I did that, and it worked once, until I tried the first GFWL game. Now everytime I try to launch it, I am told I need the "Windows Live ID assistant" to sign in, and get redirected to the same download location of the assistant (which is already installed).
Delete all previous installations of GFWL and clean the registry. (ccleaner is a good program that will do this)Looks like you install an older version of the client and let it update itself, rather than the newest client, which presumably has update agents that don't work on Win 8.
Download gfwlivesetupmin.exe (28 Mb), from http://www.shacknews.com/file/18176/games-for-windows-live-client-v33
Install the client and run it. It will ask you to download an update (624 Kb) called gfwlivesetup.exe by clicking the requested link. Install it.
Launch GFWLive.exe from C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games for Windows - LIVE\Client.
