Scott in real life
|Alternative names||GreatScott, Scott, Cosmo, GSLP|
GreatScottLP, also known simply as GreatScott, or his personal name Scott, is a Let's Play commentator, a member of mcgamer's Zeldathon team, and a guest during the Mindcrack Marathon 2014 UHC #ForTheKids event.
Scott was at the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, and was filming, when the attempted Cygnus CRS Orb-3 flight exploded seconds after take off on 28 October 2014. He posted the video to /r/pics, and held an AMA on /r/IAmA which received over 600 comments. As of 20 September 2015, it is the most viewed video on his channel with over 75,000 views, 50,000 more than his second most viewed video.
Scott was inspired to start his own Let's Play by kurtmac. He became friends with various members of Mindcrack through attending PAX East 2013 and the MindCrack Party at MineCon 2013. Scott first participated in a Mario Kart 8 recording session in August 2014 through his friendship with mcgamer.
On 7 December 2014, Scott mentioned on Twitter that he was "kicked out" of the Mario Kart group. Following the departures of OMGchad and Coestar from the series, this sparked a controversy within the community. Scott made requests for Guude to respond to him in private, but was not met with a reply.
Alternatively, Guude responded publicly via a Reddit comment made in /r/mindcrack while Scott shared his perspective of events in a Reddit post made in /r/MindcrackDiscussion. Scott stated "I’m officially done dealing with Mindcrack in any sort of professional capacity," and has cut ties with most Mindcrackers.
When criticized for how he handled the situation, Guude asserted that "no one has been ignored" while also leaving /r/mindcrack at the same time, saying "you win reddit, you have officially broken me, I give up, I am out." This was reaffirmed by W92Baj when he stated that "Guude is not coming back."
- Scott previously taught eighth grade in a public school in Northern Virginia.
- Scott had at some point in his life lived in Budapest, Hungary.
