WorthPlaying: 1 vs. 100 Live Preview

WorthPlaying writes: "Game shows are a fixture of life for many people. Even if you're not the sort of person who watches them every day, odds are that you've sat through at least one episode of "Jeopardy" or "The Price is Right" in your life, even if you were just sick at home with the flu. There's something deeply engrossing about these shows; it may be the rags-to-riches element, it may be the fun of challenging your own knowledge against the contestant's, or it may simply be for those moments when a winning streak is broken. Either way, game shows are undeniably addictive, and yet oddly, severely underrepresented in modern gaming. Despite everything that our current electronics are capable of doing, most games tend to be little more than licensed collections of trivia. Microsoft's newest addition to the Xbox Live Experience, 1 vs. 100 Live, may be the first video game to actually be a game show." (1 vs 100, Xbox 360)
