1 vs 100: Mob Rule After The Death of the Quiz Show

It might sound like a logical extension from the likes of Buzz and You Don’t Know Jack,
but you’ll have to believe that this [Xbox Live] game is ringing the death knell
for game shows
as loudly and vigorously as it possibly can. Why watch a
game show, when you can participate? Why shout at the TV, yelling at
the idiot answering wrongly, when you can be playing instead? Why watch
some person you have no emotional investiture in win a car, when you can win a car? This game expertly positions Microsoft at the forefront of “digital entertainment”. — Chris Lewis, Expressive Intelligence Studio
