"The largest campaign ever to stop publishers destroying games"
Pengling Apr 3
Some folks here might already have been following this, but for anyone who hasn't heard about it, YouTuber Ross of Accursed Farms has, in light of Ubisoft's upcoming closure of The Crew, been preparing a worldwide campaign to attempt to get action taken about the plague of games you've bought being rendered inoperable when developers and publishers decide that they want you to move on to the next big thing.

There's now a half-hour video explaining and promoting the campaign, and the campaign website itself, Stop Killing Games, is also now live.

Please give it a look if you're in any of the countries where it's possible to take action!
I always knew Gordon Freeman would be on our side......
I already have my own campaign. It's called I only buy games that are DRM free, in the case of multiplayer games ones that allow you to have your own servers. Also supporting FOSS games. These people would rather try to bend billion dollar companies with terrible track records rather than support companies and projects that already support their values.
Well there are numerous issues, some are solvable and some aren't.

For example, if there are servers or active maintenance involved doing anything except checking serial numbers, then it makes sense, and that's why I don't buy these types of games.

On the other hand if that's not the case, then a court case has a chance.
