Top Ten Greatest Game Shows of all Time

The Top Ten

1 Family Feud Family Feud is an American television game show created by Mark Goodson where two families compete to name the most popular responses to survey questions in order to win cash and prizes.

This is the ultimate Mr Average show. It teaches you to think like everyone else. It's just guessing really basic words as if you were at a kindergarten. Got to admit, it is funny when it's some idiot's turn and they make the stupidest guesses. There was this one person who would always say "I'm going to think outside the box..." whenever they had no clue what to do. Steve Harvey is midget.

It's so exciting! It gets me guessing with the contestants. Awesome show! This will probably be around for a long time. I'm just trying to understand why it's not number 1.

Family Feud is awesome. I ALWAYS try to guess the answers with the contestants, and Steve Harvey is quite the comedian. I wish I could be on the show!

Top five answers are on the board, here is the question. Name the most embarrassing thing that could happen to the emcee of a beauty pageant...

2 Wipeout Wipeout is a game show that was cancelled in 2014 series in which contestants competed in what was billed as the "World's Largest" obstacle course.

The game show is very funny and it also have crazy challanges and creative obstacles that contestants have to face. They lost when they splash but still standed up in order to win. The animation sequence (involving stick figure versions of the contestants) is the best part.

I used to watch it ALL THE TIME, until I was interested in other shows, someday I want to be a contestant. It doesn't matter what my ranking is, just being part of the show is a honer!

Probably the most intense one, besides fear factor. I would love to be on this show.

This brings back what game shows should be, humorous. It is simply awesome.

3 The Price is Right

Every morning I watch this show. Bill Cullen, Bob Barker, and Drew Carey were equally special as host.

Its not even around nowadays it used to be Bruces Price is Right. They'd have to get a new presenter.

I watched it this morning it's been on for like 50 years! It's a good ol classic!

This show is just so exciting to watch, unlike a lot of gameshows

4 Wheel of Fortune

I watch it every day. Pat and Vanna are the best, they truly treat their contestants well.

My family watches it every night, and now we have to, because we are now wheel watchers.

Best my family had been waiting this for 4 generations

I have a real good time playing it at the arcade!

5 Jeopardy

The show I can really watch with my family and where contest is for 18 minutes, intros 2 minutes and ads for 10 minutes. Other shows, contest is 9 or 10 minutes, host joking or repeating the rules for 4 or 5 minutes and advertisements for 20

Nothing is as addicting as this show, makes you appreciate really intelligent people. Even some of the contestants have become celebrities, like Ken Jennings, Brad Ruter, and Arthur Chu. What other game show can you say that about? Family Feud is fun, but this is your number one game show right here.

A lot of people told me you should be on Jeopardy, because I know so much. It's very fun to guess the answers, this and Wheel of Fortune are awesome ( Family Feud too).

I watch it every night! love guessing the answers! Has anyone else seen buzzy cohen's episodes? I love him because he was so funny! Latest celeb crush!

6 Who Wants To be a Millionaire Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? is an international television game show franchise of British origin, created by David Briggs, Mike Whitehill and Steven Knight.

The revolutionary game show that tests your knowledge in any category. You get 15 questions, and the prize doubles for each question. Lifelines, music, atmosphere!

I would say you also need skill to win on Jeopardy. Most game shows are luck though. In fact Family Feud rewards you for giving obvious answers.

The only game show that needs true skill. The British version is the best, though.

I think the Finnish version is very good, not sure if I like the other ones that much

7 Deal or no Deal Deal or No Deal is the name of several closely related television game shows, the first of which was the Dutch Miljoenenjacht produced by Dutch producer Endemol.

Loved it. Miss it. Bring it back!

That big guy gets me pumped

keeps me on my toes the whole episode.

8 Ninja Warrior

I used to watch challenge (aka channel 46) and on it was Ninja Warrior 1980 - 2001 and I was like PLEASE MAKE A NEW ONE. Then they made Ninja Warrior UK in 2013 and I LOVE IT. I never get bored while watching it. its been on one series a year from 2013 to 2014 to 2015 to 2016 and the 2017 one just finished. if u haven't watched it u r missing out.

Probably the hardest game show of all time (except maybe Takeshi's Castle and Who wants to be a millionare).

Is this even a game show, I don't think it is

I like Kevin bull when he does the course

9 Survivor

This is my favorite show ever for so many reasons, but it isn't really a game show, so I didn't vote for it (as much as it bothered me).

You obviously did vote for it, because you need an account to comment on things without voting on them, and I don't see your user name next to this comment.

It's a SHOW where people compete in a GAME for money. It is a game show, stop saying it isn't!

Great reality show

Some seasons were bad

But overall amazing loved season 10

Come on people reality shows are better than game shows. Rupert is the best.

10 Weakest Link

Utterly a brilliant game show, the idea of players both cooperating and competing against each other was brilliant, and Anne Robinson was a fantastic host, even if you don't think it's the best game show of all-time, you have to admit it's the most underrated.

I loved watching this show with my mom as a kid

I remember this show. It was great

The UK version was better

The Contenders

11 Match Game

The young people today just don't know Match Game. It's the best!

How is this not higher? Gene Rayburn made this show hilarious.

I love it and I cannot vote

Best game show of the 1970s

12 Cash Cab

Awesome show can't believe it went off air used to love watching it

13 Minute to Win It

And very fun game to play on your own too. Just get a timer and things that take about a minute to do.

14 Takeshi's Castle

Not only a game show but it also have adventure-type game show the only have to do was to win each challenge to get into Takeshi's Castle (such as mazes, Wipeout challanges, etc.)

The last challange was similiar to some bump cars that most kiddies like you will remember.

But sadly the problem is: No one can win this game show and it is possible to beat Takeshi.

It also have a guide to some sort of Captain who accompanies the contestants and he may battle with Takeshi in most occasion.

If your Japanese you shall need to join again and again when you lost.

What could possibly be better than a crazy Japanese game show where 100 contestants get picked off one by one on such sadistic challenges with hilarious wipeouts? Oh yeah, get a Scouse to narrate it. Winning combo.

This show is hilarious! My favouirte challanges are the wipe out, knock knock, skipping stones, and sumo rings

Best show ever it's so funny and compared to English T.V. it's the awsonest thing on

15 The $100,000 Pyramid

Most of this list is yank.
Fun House? The Crystal Maze?

I love dick Clark, I love game shows with word riddles, watch it some time.

16 Press Your Luck

Made way for Whammy... only the best game show ever.

BIG BUCKS, BIG BANK, BIG PRIZES, NO WHAMMIES lol :D

17 1 v.s. 100

Still my favorite game show ever.

Should have lasted longer

UM I think that Bob saget is the greatest host in the world because he did some wonderful acting in Full House HE IS THE BES T

18 Hole in the Wall

Dale Winton last game show?

19 Pointless

The complete opposite of Family Fortunes, Pointless is about finding the most obscure answers to various surveys.

Always good fun and it's great that contestants have a chance to show off their more obscure knowledge.

A good show to have on in the background.

The G.O.A.T. of gameshows

20 The Newlywed Game
21 Are you smarter than a 5th grader?

Love this show! And it shows that most kids have more book smarts than adults!

Yes, I am smarter than a fifth grader

This game should be number two

I thought it was Are You smarter than a 10 year old? :-S

22 Family Fortunes

British Family Feud

23 Figure It Out

It's a great show. You get to guess a person's amazing talents. This just gets me guessing the weird and crazy talent. It's even kid-friendly!

Awesome show I love it when they all get slime

It's a good game show.

It's on Nickelodeon in 2012 with Splatalot!

24 101 Ways to Leave a Gameshow

This needs to stay dead. It's repetitive, mostly luck based, and the general knowledge questions are ridiculously easy.

Awesome show. I hope they bring it back.

I'd Like The UK Version

25 Big Brother Big Brother is a reality game show franchise created by John de Mol, originally broadcast in the Netherlands and subsequently syndicated internationally.

Not really a game show more of a reality competition show but still great fun and really addictive.

Best game show ever I am only 10 and I think this is the best!

Love this show it should be number 1

It's awesome
