14 Game Shows From The '80s And '90s That Need To Come Back
Created by Mat Elfring on
Even during the arcade boom of the '80s, there were very few game shows revolving around video gaming. Starcade was the best and brightest of them, airing over 130 episodes. On the show, contestants would answer video game-related trivia questions and would battle each other on arcade games for top scores. It was a lot like Nick Arcade, without the cheesy green screen finale. The winner of those opening rounds would go on to the Bonus Round where they played one of the arcade games on set and had to beat an average score set by 20 people.
