Some of the greatest game format shows of all-time

Whether you’re sitting around the fire on a cold winters evening or passing out after a big Christmas feast with the family, game shows are the perfect watch for millions of people all around the world, whatever the generation.

You might have two families battling it out for a large cash prize or a number of fitness addicts attempting to get around some sort of obstacle course to get through to the next round, but whatever it is, these types of television shows not only entertain and provide the odd comical moment, but they are easy to watch and certainly help pass the time. You can, of course, test your knowledge against the players on your TV screen too, making game shows a highly successful form of entertainment for all kinds of people, including the family.

With game shows seemingly changing and perhaps not living up to the billing these days, we thought we’d take a look at some classic creations from the past and help jog a few memories or two.

The Price Is Right

Everyone has seen The Price Is Right, right? Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock most of your life, this is a beautiful classic from this genre. Debuted in 1956 with host Bull Cullen, The Price Is Right was revamped in 1972 with long running host Bob Barker and was a humongous success, featuring some classic moments. With contestants chosen randomly from the studio audience, a large part of the entertainment element was provided as the joy on their faces once selected was superb to watch and created plenty of excitement. Bidding on various merchandise prices, contestants who won would then get the opportunity to spin a wheel to win prizes. The “Showcase Showdown” - where the top two contestants compete by guessing the total price of a variety of merchandise - was the grand finale to what is one of the most iconic game shows ever made.

Wheel of Fortune

Hosted by Pat Sajak with Vanna White since 1983, Wheel of Fortune is a game show based on the game “Hangman” and was hugely popular back in the day. In fact, those Wheel of Fortune-style games which were popular in the 1980s and 90s can still be found today online, as seen with the top live casino games available 24/7 at casino.com. A definite classic, contestants on Wheel of Fortune would compete by spinning a wheel to win a certain amount of money per guess, a prize or lose a turn. Always fun to watch, confused guests could struggle with even the simplest of questions. Wheel of Fortune is an all-time great and remains popular today.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire

Everyone has their favourite television shows, with the usual creations cropping up all the time, but when it comes to gameshows a certain type of connoisseur might refer to this particular one. Originally created in the UK, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire was a prime time hit in the United States of America in 1999. A game show full of suspense, dramatic lights and music, contestants must try and answer as many questions as they can in the hope of climbing up the table and reaching the deliciously appealing $1million final question. Along the way, contestants are given three “life lines” to help answer those tough questions. These include “50/50” - which eliminates two possible answers, “Ask the Audience” - where the studio audience can vote on the answer, and “Phone a Friend” - where a player can call their most knowledgeable buddy.
