Now You Can Play Your Favorite TV Show And Choose The Plot

2 Weeks Ago By Russell Campbell

We all have our favorite, can’t-possibly-miss TV shows and sometimes they’re so much fun to watch that you find yourself counting down the hours to the next episode. But instead of twiddling your thumbs waiting, find out which of your favorite shows is available to play instead of just watch. Here are five popular games that turn your favorite TV show into an experience you’ve never experienced before.

The Simpsons: Hit And Run

The Simpsons have been transformed from TV show into a video game in a number of different ways, but one of the best is The Simpsons: Hit & Run – a light-hearted, altogether more family-oriented version of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto series. Players can control characters such as Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Apu as they travel on the streets of Springfield streets trying to prevent an alien take-over-the-planet plot that’s led by Kang and Kodos.

Players drive the Simpsons’ family car, Mr. Burns’s vintage car or a Duff truck as they complete different levels of the game. The game’s map includes plenty of familiar Simpsons locations and players need to leave their vehicles occasionally to seek out Itchy & Scratchy collectible cards and coins. Developed by Radical Entertainment and published by Vivendi Universal Games, The Simpsons: Hit & Run was first released in 2003.

Deal Or No Deal Bingo

TV game shows are one of the most natural choices when it comes to making the crossover to a home gaming experience, as there’s already a gameplay mechanic involved. Deal or No Deal is an Endemol show that has worldwide popularity and it makes for perhaps one of the most tense competition programs on TV. The spin-off Deal or No Deal bingo game combines all the best features from the show, such as the suspense-laden music, the sharp intakes of breath from the “audience” and the banker, who may or may not make you an offer you can’t refuse when you have a full house. And, just as in the TV show, the box you choose may lead to a huge cash prize or be totally worthless. Available to play on the desktop or mobile, Deal or No Deal can give you that heart-in-your-mouth excitement anytime, anywhere.

Keep Up With Kim

Fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians will no doubt have already downloaded the mobile game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. For those few and far between moments when you can’t find an episode of Keeping Up…being aired on a TV channel, the game can fill the gap. The aim of the game is to make your character into a fully-fledged celeb and you do this by completing challenges, boosting your bank balance and taking on career-enhancing opportunities. While the game is free to download, there are in-app purchases available.

Take The Gordon Ramsay Dash

Be honest. When you watch Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen, are you more interested in the turnaround of a restaurant’s food and service or is it Gordon’s Ramsay’s shouting and swearing that draws you in? For that injection of kitchen rage whenever you want it, delivered in Ramsay’s furious British tones, then try Glu Mobile’s Gordon Ramsay Dash.

Playing the game, you get to star in a reality TV show called Rising Star Chefs. You can customize your chef and start off in a burger joint, tasked with reaching the highest score for every stage of service. By completing different and increasingly difficult challenges, your chef will graduate from burger bar to classier eating establishments all over the world – but be warned: you’ll have to face the wrath of Ramsay as you work your way up.

The Walking Dead

If you’re a fan of the TV series The Walking Dead, you might assume that The Walking Dead: The Game and The Walking Dead: Season One were based on the show. In fact, the game, developed and published by Telltale Games, is based on The Walking Dead comic book series, and that’s what the TV series is based on too.

This survival horror video game is set in Georgia, following the start of a zombie apocalypse and the central character is Lee Everett, a university professor and convicted criminal who rescues and cares for a girl called Clementine. The game’s all about character development and a player’s progress is affected by their in-game choices and actions. Any choices made in one episode of the game are carried through to the next episode. Telltale actually tracked player choices in order to guide the writing of further episodes of the game.

While the TV show and the video game are separate from one another, there are occasional links between the two. For instance, in one episode of Season 5 of the TV series, one of the lead characters visited Macon, the hometown of Lee Everett, the main character in the video game.

It’s easy to see why games developers make the link with successful TV shows. There’s a huge potential market of fans who want to tap into their favorites in a different, more interactive way. The transition isn’t always successful, but what’s the big deal if you end up not liking the game version? You can simply just revert to watching the show, especially since most of these games are free to play!
