Smile Good Game TV Show is all about the 80s tonight

Hey all... bit of promo for the show so apologies for that but on Good Game tonight (ABC2 9pm or via vodcast at abc.net.au/goodgame) we take a look at what was great (and not so great) about gaming in the 80s. Of course in 30 mins we only had time for some high and low lights but if you were gaming then (or have younger family members who may like to know where your gaming obsession began) you may find it watchable.

Many thanks,


Series Producer

PS Can you older gamers playing destro on Ironfist plz stop killing me!

PPS for non digital viewers the show is repeated way after bed time (after midnight - just) on ABC1 on Friday nights.

Good show, As (I think) the average age of gamers is creeping up past the 30 year old mark its nice to see our gaming roots explored.

In Love

Was a great show as always. Definitely some exclamations in our house of "Oh! I used to have that." Looking forward to next week!
