It's hard to find someone who didn't develop LEGOs; these small plastic bricks would be imprinted to our feet. Mixing one of the numerous video games in the franchise is not something we forget, either, while the sound of rummaging through a giant bin of LEGO bits is a reminder of the youth years.
The first LEGO game came out in 1995, and there have been almost 70 in total since then. From the original games to the installments, LEGO gave lighthearted games that extended our imaginations to us. Perfect to play by yourself or co-op, and it feels just like there was always something for everyone. Here's a list of our favorite LEGO games from the series.
Released from the golden age of racing games, LEGO Racers is, you guessed it, LEGO's take on a kart-racer. It is a tried and true formula which we know and love, but using this flair that is unique only LEGO can provide. And needless to say, it nostalgic for those people who played with it back.
Speaking of nostalgia, we can not forget about the gem that is LEGO Island. Only the second LEGO game ever, this action-adventure name was a staple for PC gamers. We spent hours flying ski racing, delivering pizza, and building vehicles, while there were not any clear objectives into the match.
Ah yes, LEGO Star Wars.
The LEGO game that launched (or should we say constructed?) A thousand ships. This is the first game, and for that, we are thankful. Collecting Studs with our favorite characters as mini-figs and solving puzzles has been a mind.
As avid gamers and fans of the wizarding world, we must state, LEGO Harry Potter delivers. We play through the narrative of all seven books, explore Hogwarts, and cast spells to solve puzzles. It's not just like being there. However, it is a great way to immerse yourself further in the area of Harry Potter.
The Batman franchise includes some of the best superhero movie games, and its LEGO version (although a great deal more whimsical) is no exception. Perform as the Caped Crusader, or any of those other awesome characters from the Batverse, and save by solving puzzles and fighting enemies.
Over time, the LEGO games have slipped into what sounds like most of our favorite franchises, but what is fantastic about LEGO Dimensions is that it brings them all together in a crazy mashup. I mean come on, where else are you going to find Doctor Who, Portal, Ghostbusters, the Wizard of Oz, Back to the Future, and Adventure Time all in one game?
Among the most magical cinematic minutes of the previous decade was when we saw all of the Avengers together on the big screen for the first time. But the simple fact that we may play as every single one of these? And all within the colorful and bright world of LEGO? Sign us up.
Everyone knows that the DC villains are iconic. Therefore it's a no-brainer that DC would get them their particular spin-off. With each of the hours we spent in LEGO Batman, it's a nice change of pace to be on the villains' side for once.
