We Need To Talk About Lego Games

Something I've never understood in the gaming community is the common misconception that Lego games are made for children but that couldn't be further from the truth. Lego games span multiple franchises from Batman to Pirates of the Caribbean so no matter your interests there is most likely a Lego game out there for you.

Lego games have been stigmatized as childish and boring all because of the Lego brand but why have we accepted this as the norm? In my opinion Lego games can be the most enjoyable type of game out there, they're so easy to pick up, anyone can play them, they have a very low skill rating meaning if you're just looking to relax for an hour or so they can be a great choice. They can also be an easy introduction for anyone who is looking to get into gaming but hasn't picked up the hand-eye coordination needed for games such as Call of Duty or Battlefield.

Personally my favourite Lego game is Lego Star Wars: The Video Game, it explores the prequel era from the movies, this includes a minimal range of characters from said movies with only 59 playable personalities including Yoda, Mace Windu, and Darth Vader. That being said I would play this game for hours on end getting every mini-kit collectible and unlocking all the extras and it helped develop the deep love I now hold for gaming and will always be one of my favourite games.

I think that more people would enjoy Lego games if they could get over this idea that they're only made for children, I mean who wouldn't love flying around New York as Iron man in the Lego Avengers or learning spells in Lego Harry Potter, there's a whole world of opportunities just like how Lego in real life lets you do anything you can imagine Lego video games give you the same freedom of world building or destruction whatever you're feeling.

I for one can't wait to see what kind of franchises adopt the Lego video game style in the future and whether I' 15 or 50 I will always jump at the opportunity to sit and play a Lego game and it's a shame not everyone feels this way.
