LoreHound.com connects the dots between NBC's Minute to Win It and the fore bringing of microgames, the WarioWare franchise.

Or how its simple and intuitive design made developers think that it must be an easily repeatable formula; one that's possible to recreate on a shoestring budget, no less. No, none of that is why we are here. We are here because WarioWare's potential has transcended mere video game design, and leapt into the realm of analog games. To my knowledge, WarioWare's simple and fun games have lead it to become the first video game to become a TV game show."
