Big Fish Game Club Do you watch TV? Have you ever imagined yourself as a participant of one of the numerous TV shows so popular nowadays? If yes, then the games I am going to talk about are undoubtedly interesting for you. I mean the large number of casual games based on famous TV programs and contests. Sometimes it's a great chance to try your hand or wits in some challenges not quite available in real life. Or not?

Actually, I think it's a question of personal choice. People play such games for different reasons. Some, like The 80s Game with Martha Quinn, Pat Sajak's Lucky Letters or Merv Griffin's Crosswords , attract fans of certain personalities, the popular TV hosts who are brand by themselves.

Others, like Family Feud III: Dream Home , Jeopardy 2 or The Price is Right , are a treat for those who always watch the respective shows screaming "I knew it!". I sometimes do exactly that. And you? To my mind, i's a perfect way to test yourself and see whether it's that easy as it seems...

But most of such games do not become real hits, because their audience is quite narrow. Not all of us adore Merv Griffin or Martha Quinn, and that's a fact. But there are some titles that can offer the user more than just an association with the favorite show. They also feature game play that is addictive by itself. I am talking about time-maangements like The Office or Hell's Kitchen and such a great example of hidden object games as The History Channel Lost Worlds . I would play them even if the theme had nothing to do with television.

And I think that what all game developers should seek to achieve - engaging game play. Otherwise not even the most popular theme will save the situation. Do you agree?
