There have been a number of real-world games based on TV shows and those TV shows are usually game shows because they’re so fun. We’re going to be discussing which 10 of these game shows are our favorite and why we think they’re the best ones ever.

The hosts are always entertaining and the prizes on offer are usually very good. We absolutely love Wheel of Fortune and we think it’s only fair that it’s seen as an all-timer TV show.
4. Family Feud
Family Feud pits two families against each other in a battle of general knowledge. It’s always super fun to watch and it’s one of those game shows that really entertains you for hours on end. If you’re like us you’ll find yourself watching the best moments late at night on YouTube. If you have been living under a rock and haven’t seen it you’re missing out.
5. The Chase
The Chase is a quiz show with a difference as it features contestants being chased by professional quizzers known as “chasers”. The chasers are usually very smart and the contestants are usually very impressive. We love The Chase and we think it’s one of the best game shows of all time, even if we think the UK version is even better!
6. Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? has been on our screens for many years. It’s a quiz show where contestants can win up to $1 million if they answer all 15 questions correctly. It’s fun to watch and it’s one of those game shows that really makes you think about the answers. The tension you can feel is really entertaining and the prizes on offer are usually very impressive.
7. Dancing with the Stars
Dancing with the Stars is an American institution at this point. It features celebrities teaming up with professional dancers in order to compete for the Mirror Ball Trophy. It’s prime television! Do talent shows count as game shows? We think they might as long as there’s some kind of physical activity and challenges involved.
8. The Bachelor
The Bachelor is a reality TV show that has been around for a while now. It follows a single man or woman as they go on dates with multiple people in order to find their perfect partner. It’s one of those reality TV shows that really keeps you hooked week after week. Is it a game show? We think so. Do we love it? Absolutely. It’s all a game to the contestants.
9. Golden Balls
Golden Balls is a UK quiz show that features contestants playing against each other in order to win cash prizes. The cool part about it is that there’s a part at the end where the 2 contestants can choose to split or steal the final prize. If one chooses to split and one chooses to steal then the stealer will walk away with the prize but both choose to steal then they’ll both go home empty-handed.
10. The Cube
The Cube is a reality TV show that follows contestants as they attempt to complete various tasks in order to win cash prizes. The hosts are great but it’s the crazy difficult challenges and audience POV that makes it so wonderful to watch. Is there anything better than a TV show that contains a genuine sense of danger? We don’t think so.
