Not Good.

The ABC's Good Game is gone, for good, which is far from good news for Australian gamers.

In fact, it hit them like a tonne of bricks.

Now they're 'putting their controllers out' to mourn the loss of Australia's longest-running video game television show and the hashtag #putyourcontrollersout was trending on Twitter by Tuesday afternoon. Even major companies were getting on board.

On Tuesday the show released a statement announcing the cancellation, after the two hosts both decided to pursue other career opportunities after the summer break.

"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," the statement read.

Co-Host of the show, Stephanie Bendixsen posted the statement to Instagram claiming the show was "the place I truly discovered who I was."

Queue the onslaught of controllers put out. But if you're scratching your head wondering why you've never heard of the show, we don't blame you.

If not, we send our condolences... and a virtual hug, too.
