Of Lego Games

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Monday, everyone! I hope you’re all doing well and staying warm. There’s more snow coming our way where we live.

As for Lego games, I don’t really get this series…

There’s a rumor that there will be a Lego The Incredibles game coming to the Nintendo Switch. There are currently over a dozen video games starring Lego characters and… I dunno, I never really understood the hype.

They’re cute, yes, and playing with actual Legos was always awesome when I was a kid (and as an adult). As video games, however, they were never my favorite. We have a couple of Lego games, such as the Hobbit and Harry Potter, but playing through scenes of the movies and books wasn’t that great to me. There wasn’t much of a challenge in collecting Lego pieces and it seemed a little silly to have the need to do so to build up parts of the world to move on.

I suppose being Lego-fied, characters and stories like Batman and the Lord of the Rings are more accessible to kids and younger gamers rather than Arkham Asylum and Shadows of Mordor. For me, though, they weren’t games that tended to keep my interest.

What do you think of the Lego games? Do you enjoy them?

  1. I liked Lego Star Wars, because I am a big fan of the saga, and Lego City, because the open-world aspect of the game works very well. But, overall, Lego games do not do much for me. So I feel the same as you do.

  2. They’re games for people who like achievements. I used to love them because of all the collectables. There is always a sense of achievement as you are always unlocking something new – that being said, they need to be of a decent franchise. The Pirates of the Caribbean ones fell a bit flat for me because I enjoyed the variety of the Star Wars, Batman or Marvel games. There were so many inside jokes and jokes for adults. Unlocking Pirate 1 and Pirate 2 kind of felt like the same – thus the sense of achievement fell by the wayside if that makes sense.

    • I wonder if Rachel would enjoy the games if she gave them another try… She usually loves collecting things in video games. I was never too interested in that aspect of games, though, much preferring the exploration or character/story development. If you enjoyed the Batman Lego games, did you also enjoy the movies? Haven’t gotten the chance to see any of those, but I am a fan of Batman, so I am curious about them. Thank you for sharing your thoughts! 🙂

    • The Batman ones don’t look too bad to me, but we never invested in them after the other few Lego games we have. I have similar feelings for the Lego movies and am a little baffled at how well they’ve done, but I haven’t had the chance to see them yet, so I obviously don’t want to pass judgement on them. Have you seen any of the movies? What did you think of them?

  3. I’m a huge fan of the LEGO games. Yeah, they are super simple games but I love the aesthetic and I find the humor to be light and whimsical featuring some of my favorite characters.

    • I’ve heard the games can be pretty funny and light, but they didn’t interest us enough to keep playing. I’m glad you enjoyed them, though! Which ones were you’re favorites? Did you also enjoy the Lego movies? We haven’t seen any of them yet, but haven’t heard bad things about them.

      • I’ve liked all the ones I’ve played but the LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Marvel one’s have been my favorites. I’ve seen The LEGO Movie and LEGO Batman, I liked both although I found The LEGO Movie to be the better of the two.
