For ten years Good Game has been at the forefront of excellent video games journalism in Australia (and around the world).
This announcement today reeks of ABC budget cuts however it is great news for the two yet-to-be-named presenters who have other opportunities, and for the remaining GG team to work on Spawn Point. Sadly GG Pocket has also been cancelled.
EDIT: Confirmed that Nich 'Nichboy' Richardson & Stephanie 'Hex' Bendixsen are leaving. Stephen 'Bajopants' O'Donnell and the rest remain.
A sad way to end a great show:
Sad news. After the program’s summer break, two of the key presenters of Good Game announced they were leaving to pursue other opportunities.
In light of this major setback, and changes in the way audiences are choosing to get their information about gaming, the ABC has decided to end the long and successful run of the show. We plan to continue Spawn Point in a new format.
We expect to retain all the remaining Good Game team.
The ABC would like to acknowledge the wonderful work of Janet Carr and all of the Good Gamers. Any show that makes it to a 10th birthday is something to be proud of. Good Game pioneered video game TV. Its commitment and innovation has been repeatedly and appropriately awarded. The show has had a tremendous run and plenty of adventures, none of which would have happened without the ongoing love and support of you, the GG community.
