JESSE WENTE'S TOP TEN GAME SHOWS (THAT SHOULD BE MADE INTO A LIVE VIDEO GAME)
1/ Jeopardy - still the king, this quiz show would work perfectly here
2/ Wheel of Fortune - again, a natural for this style of entertainment
3/ Crosswords - Merv Griffin's last game show is word puzzle show that would work perfectly in this format
4/ Who Wants to be a Millionaire? - coming back on tv this summer, this quiz show would allow multiple players to vie for the hotseat, and the viewers to participate on the lifelines - text message a friend perhaps?
5/ You Don't Know Jack - a video game that allowed players to face off against real competition in a pop culture quiz, this series could be reborn here
6/ Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader? - quiz shows would seem to work best here, and this one could be fun and humiliating at the same time
7/ The Price is Right - I have no idea how this would work, but I'd play it whenever possible - virtual Plinko anyone? The audience could yell "1 Dollar" constantly
8/ Trivial Pursuit - this game show already uses viewers to ask questions with the possibility of prizes, it would be an easy one to transfer to this format - but no Peter Brady as host
9/ Name that Tune - this show could be recreated with audience participation, and help flagging music sales at the same time
10/ 21 - another chance to reinvent a franchise, this classic quiz show is begging for viewer participation and a modern remake
