''Good Game'' is an Australian video game review show shown on [[Creator/TheABC the ABC]] that started in 2006. It originally starred hosts Michael "Kapowski" Makowski and Jeremy "Junglist" Ray, but early in 2007 Kapowski resigned and was replaced by Steven "Bajo" O'Donnell. Eventually, in late 2009, Junglist was sacked to make way for new host Stephanie "Hex" Bendixsen. They were joined by Gus "Goose" Ronald in 2011, who hosts other segments of the show. As well as reviews, it often includes Gaming News, a look back at the best and worst in gaming, a moment chosen to be a great moment in gaming and, inversely, finding a horrible game where they ask WTF? (What were they thinking?). It also stars Tracey "Rei" Lien, field reporter who looks at pressing issues in gaming, such as game art and even covering [[Webcomic/PennyArcade Child's Play]] in Australia. After Rei left to study in Europe, her segment was taken over by Jackson "Ajax" Gothe-Snape, and then by Gus "Goose" Ronald. It's basically everything that ''Series/XPlay'' used to be, but better. Visit the forum. It's the largest in Australia, with over 140 topics and 280,000 messages all-up.

** Hilariously it works as an ActorAllusion for Bajo whose first major role in a film was as a zombie extra in ''Undead'' which was made by the creators of Film/{{Daybreakers}}.

* ZombieInfectee: In an undead-themed episode, along with reviews of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', ''SilentHillHomecoming'', ''[[VideoGame/DeadRising Dead Rising: Chop 'till You Drop]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead House of the Dead: Overkill]]'', Bajo is hinted to have become bitten, and shows gradual signs of infection throughout each review. By the last review, he has turned, and while not hostile, occasionally looks over at co-host Junglist in an interesting way, and even groans when he calls the phototaking system in VideoGame/DeadRising stupid. By the end, he attacks Junglist offscreen, but [[UnexplainedRecovery he's all better by next week]].
