Top Ten Greatest Game Shows of all Time

The Top Ten

1 Family Feud 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.

Steve Harvey is the best - 23windomt

Please no. The host is so bad

I love playing along and yelling out random stuff!

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.

2 Wipeout 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.

I like this show because it has brittany zubiate on it - ronluna

This show is so funny and winning 50 thousand dollars in one day is pretty awesome with out of this world obstacles and funny wipeouts I would love to be on this show just to see what its like, this should be number 1 for being the craziest game show

This is a great game show... Especially the British version with Richard Hammond - Clayttles

I wish this still came on T.V.

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!

3 The Price is Right

I remember watching this show a lot in summer 2009, and I saw a few episodes in summer 2018, I also remember seeing bob barker at the big wheel a few times when it was on when I was little

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

It's the oldest running gameshow - Ajkloth

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

4 Wheel of Fortune 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.

itz fun 2 guess what the thing is - Razor79

Best my family had been waiting this for 4 generations

5 Jeopardy

Love Jeopardy - 23windomt

I’ve aced an IQ test because of this

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). - Pony

6 Who Wants To be a Millionaire 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!

The syndicated version went downhill - ElSherlock

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

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.

8 Ninja Warrior

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

This show has challenging obstacles - Ajkloth

9 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.

Really funny lines Love the woman when she said it not the man but where the heck is ninja warrior one of the greatest shows of all time def should be on here - ballaboi17

I remember this show. It was great

I loved watching this show with my mom as a kid - Jyoung777

10 Match Game

Love you Bobby

The Match Game was my fave as a kid & I still watch it now that I’m retired!

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

Best game show of the 1970s - bobbythebrony

The Contenders

11 Survivor

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

How is it not a game show? - TheInsomniac

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. - MrSnuffleupagus

I agree it's not a game show but I love it!

12 Cash Cab

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

13 Takeshi's Castle

Its awesome

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.

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.

(un)lucky Japanese fellows try to complete some obstacles and avoid monsters,the commentator is basically a comedian and we see the contestants play karaoke or get demolished by boulders. We need an Australian version of this

Fun House? The Crystal Maze?

18 Pointless

The G.O.A.T. of gameshows

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

Always good fun and it's great that contestants have a chance to show off their more obscure knowledge. - Entranced98

19 Are you smarter than a 5th grader?

British Family Feud

21 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

Should have lasted longer -

Still my favorite game show ever.

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

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. - Entranced98

Awesome show. I hope they bring it back.

I'd Like The UK Version - Stevenpenguin

Cool Show!

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

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

I know it's not really a game show but in my opinion it beats all the for seen list and I know it's even more of not a game show but I also really like big brothers bit on the side

Not really a game show more of a reality competition show but still great fun and really addictive. - Skyeguy182

Love this show it should be number 1 - HotGuysAreMyType

Hate this show. Sure shows how desperate Americans are for money.

Best game show ever funny, and always exciting!

It's crazy what they have to do! But this show is a lot of fun to watch!

Awesome show and good host

28 The Million Pound Drop

Great question and can be educational but in a fun way better than family fued by your mum

29 Let's Make a Deal

Love this show! The excitement is outstanding!

I love this show. I always try to guess what's behind the curtain. The anticipation is thrilling.

Omgoodness! This show is phenomenal! The host, Wayne Brady, is super duper funny.

30 Gladiators

Ha remember this

31 Total Blackout
32 Greed
33 Card Sharks
34 Exit

I liked the Japanese version better to be honest

I loved that show

35 The Biggest Loser

Dude this show sucks its just a bunch of fat ass Americans "losing weight"

36 Beat Shazam
37 Tipping Point

Whilst general knowledge comes into play for the questions the game is also reliant on strategy, about where and when you want to use your tokens.

38 America Says
39 Chain Reaction

I love this so much

40 Ant & Dec's Push the Button
41 Take It or Leave It
42 Truth or Consequences

A city in New Mexico offered to change their name to this if the show took place there... Now it is still known as Truth or Consequences

43 Russian Roulette

How is this not number 1? The players literally drop out of the game - bobbythebrony

This was amazing. Loved how the players left the game. - Turkeyasylum

Awesome game show! - bobbythebrony

What Wait?! - Stevenpenguin

44 I Survived a Japanese Game Show
45 Countdown
46 The Chase

This one has to be my favourite. Bradley Walsh is honestly brilliant. - Rocko

These four people have never met before but by working as a team they each have a chance of winning thousands of pounds... but there's one thing standing in their way... The Chaser... The chase is on.

One of my favourite game shows, but its probably one of the hardest game shows, tipping point comes second.

Two words. Fanny Chmelar. - Entranced98

47 I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!

Even if you hate Reality T.V., you have got to watch anything with Ant and Dec.

48 Red or Black?
49 Japanizi: Going, Going, Gong!

It's Zany, wacky, loud, and leaps out the T.V. screen. Silly, yes, but so much fun,

50 Bowling for Dollars

The Los Angeles version was hosted by famous Lakers basketball announcer Chick Hearn during the off season. Spectacularly bad!
