Ross Scott on Stop Killing Games

Story


I’ve been watching Ross Scott, aka Accursed FarmsFreeman’s Mind and Ross’s Game Dungeon videos on youtube for years so I knew he was concerned about game publishers destroying video games for years. When Ubisoft decided to kill their online servers for The Crew, he kicked things into high gear. 

Basically, if you own a copy of The Crew, you’re about to lose access to the game you paid for, forever. The move to online only games means there are more and more games each year dependent on publishers to maintain services that allow you to play. Once they stop, poof, the game – and the money you spent on it – are gone.

I’m embedding the long version of what he want to do to stop publishers from doing this. But if you want the VERY short version, he’s got a 50 second video here.

There are 2 aspects of his campaign, depending on where you live and if you own a copy of The Crew.  If you own The Crew and live if France, he gives information on how to bring up the issue with Ubisoft and the French consumer protection agency. If you don’t, or live elsewhere, he’s setting up petitions you can sign.

In addition to the video, he’s also got a website, stopkillinggames.com, with more information.
