Good Game is an Australian television gaming programme produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), which aired on ABC2. Created by Janet Carr, Jeremy Ray and Michael Makowski. The show began in 2006 and includes a mix of gaming news, reviews, and features. The original hosts were Jeremy “Junglist” Ray and Michael “Kapowski” Makowski; the latter was replaced by Steven “Bajo” O’Donnell in 2007, and the former was replaced by Stephanie “Hex” Bendixsen in 2009. Other on screen presenters included field reporter Gus “Goose” Ronald and Dave Callan.
The show is named after the friendly phrase gamers traditionally say after completing a competitive match. The show’s producers maintained an online presence with the audience, often directly communicating and taking feedback from viewers; audience competitions and polls are also held. In addition, a mobile application and a book were created by the production team, to further cater the communication to the show’s audience.
Good Game received generally positive reception, with the hosts and segments being the subject of much praise. The show also received multiple awards, and achieved the status as one of the most downloaded ABC shows. The show’s popularity has resulted in four main spin-offs: Good Game: Spawn Point, a show for younger viewers broadcast on ABC ME; Good Game: Pocket Edition, which ran on ABC2 from February 2013 to May 2014; Good Game Pocket, hosted by Nich “NichBoy” Richardson, with daily episodes released on ABC iview and YouTube from 2015 to 2016; and Good Game Well Played, an online show focused on eSports and hosted by Angharad “Rad” Yeo, which ran from 2015 to 2016. Both Well Played and Pocket were previously hosted by Michael “Hingers” Hing. Two podcasts were also created: Good Game: Grandstand in 2012, and Good Game Roundtable Podcast from 2015 to 2016.
On 31 January 2017, the ABC issued a statement that the show had been cancelled and would not return in 2017. The spin-off for younger gamers, Spawn Point, will continue with a new format and branding. Janet Carr confirmed that the show was cancelled after ABC received news that Good Game hosts Hex and NichBoy had been hired by Channel 7 to start a rival gaming show.
