Lego Video Games


The Lego Games have been my absolute favorite video games to play--although the entire Mario franchise is a very close second. Lego Jurassic World is my personal favorite and I love video games because contrary to what most people tell you they are actually quite educational and stimulate the brain. ;) 

I've played games since Nintendo 64, which still works by the way, as well as Playstation 1, 2, 3, and 4, Wii, Gameboy, you name it. Each system has some really exciting games, and it's great to live in an age where graphics keep improving to where the original PacMan looks like something out of the stone age.

The Lego Games have certainly evolved too. Starting with a home base that has only one room for entering all the levels, to a home world that is a level in itself. From having to share a screen with your partner and constantly pulling the character in another direction, to each having your own screen, yet still being able to play co-op. From Lego characters who can't speak and only mime, to ones who speak the English language fluently. ;)

I like these games best because they are one of the few adventure games that allow two player adventure mode. It's always more fun to play games with other people, and that can get old when it's only racing games. I also love games that follow your favorite movies too--getting to play the whole movie yourself. 

Highlights of the Lego Games for me are story mode, obviously, because you get to play in the scenes of your favorite movie. Characters for sure are the best because you can unlock everyone from the entire movie and play as anyone you want in free play, or else build your own lego character. Stud collecting is also fun, breaking things to collect the pieces used to buy "bricks" that unlock special powers, as well as missions that you are given outside story mode to obtain important "bricks". These bricks can be hilarious like when you can have "silly voices." 

Some people can get obsessed with video games, but I think when it's not in excess they are a really fun way to spend time with friends and family. I would highly recommend the Lego Games because they are interesting, exciting, and fun.
