List Rules Vote up the best game shows that aired during the 1960s.

In the 1960s, television was still relatively new, and there wasn’t much in the way of programming. The concept of games on television began in the 1950s, so many of the earliest game shows aired during the 60s as well. "The Price Is Right," "Truth or Consequences," "Queen for a Day," and "Concentration" had all aired in the 50s and 60s. This list of the best 1960s game shows includes shows that aired between 1960 and 1969, and has been ranked by the community. 

Some of the world’s most famous game shows got their start in the 60s, such as "The Dating Game," "Jeopardy," and "The Newlywed Game." Not all the game shows that aired in the 60s had a long shelf live. Shows like "PDQ," "Dream House," and "The Generation Gap" were short lived but enjoyed by audiences nonetheless.
