Ever feel like being a gamer in Australia means being second best to pretty much everywhere else in the world? It takes months for games to arrive here after being released in the states, major 'worldwide' console launches tend to ignore us, ... hell even NEW ZEALAND has an R18+ rating for games.
What we DO have though is a collection of fantastic online and offline gaming communities, some of the best local game developers on the planet, and a country full of people who are dedicated and passionate gamers.
As a gamer and as the part time collaborator of a gaming website, I'd like to ask for your input for a potentially massive gaming AUSTRALIAN ONLY event and expo that will be happening soon. I'm not trying to market this or spin it in any way, I simply want to know the answers to a few questions, the main one being:
AS A GAMER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO SEE AT AN AUSTRALIAN VIDEO GAME EVENT / EXPO / COMPETITION?
How about a massive 36 hour Xbox 360 tournament with an obscene amount of prizemoney? How about the equivilant of an 'Australian E3' but targeted towards GAMERS not the industry? How about playing the latest games before they've even been released in the states?
Give me your opinions, your ideas, your feedback. This is an event which has the potential to be defined by YOU, the Australian Gamer :)
I'm going to post this on a few gaming forums, just a heads up for anyone who thinks I am 'SPAMMING'. Cause I am. Definately. I want to hear feedback from as many different people and places as possible!
