Without the formal game show setup in place (where bad contestants are supposed to be screened and eliminated ahead of time), game developers have to make a best guess in deciding what's difficult, what's easy, and what's ridiculous. It's especially hard because you never know who's going to play your game – brainiacs are sure to jump on board, but what happens if Izzy Idiot or Stan Stupid jumps on board? Negative e-mails and blog posts are bound to ensue.
Sony has cleverly avoided these problems with their intelligent Buzz! series, which offers a greater variety of topics and questions than most, less repetition, and a goofy, lighthearted appearance. The controller design, which looks like it came from a game show, didn't hurt either. Where does this lead other trivia games? Most opt for a license, as seen here with the release of 1 vs. 100."
