By now you’ve most likely heard that Good Game, ABC 2’s long running video game show, has been cancelled.
In response, fans of the show have been paying tribute, but putting their controllers out.
If you jump on Twitter and click the tag #putoutyourcontrollers you’ll see that an astonishing number of twitter users have been expressing their displeasure at the show’s cancellation by mimicking the #putoutyourbats hashtag used to honour the passing of cricket player Phillip Hughes.

It’s a really cool gesture. Some Australian game studios have been getting in on the act:

Such an awesome way to pay tribute to the show. We’ll miss it. Very strange decision on the ABC’s part to cancel the show.
