Licensing.biz — a Web site that hurts my brain with all its crazy “acquisition” and “brand profile” talk — is reporting that NBC Universal (which owns Bravo) has secured DSI Games to produce a Wii game based on popular reality show Top Chef.
Make fun of me if you will, but I love Top Chef. Love it. In fact, I love all reality television. Yup, I am one of those people. But a game based on Top Chef? I don’t really like the sound of that. True, putting it on the Wii is a step in the right direction (wow, I just cut that star anise myself!), but the producers need to avoid the game being just another generic Cooking Mama clone.
What do you think? Would you play a game based on Top Chef? What other reality shows would make good Wii games (Groomer Has It!)?
