Lego-Video games the world has seen many. One of the secrets of its success is that it is wonderfully playable for audiences young and old, who can also play together. Another appeal is the combination with various well-known franchises, allowing fans to relive their favorite films in Lego form.
The question remains what the best Lego games are? Everyone probably has different views, but our list looks like this.
Lego Builder’s Journey (2019 – PC, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch)
Lego Builder’s Journey is a geometry puzzle game in which you mainly influence the environment in small puzzle worlds to pave the way for the characters in the game through the adventure. You get building blocks and have to arrange them in such a way that you can cross rivers or gorges, for example.
It’s not a sprawling adventure, but it will keep you busy for a couple of hours. In the creative mode, which was added later, you can build your own models on a base plate and, in the truest sense of the word, let your creativity run free. Of course, you can later take screenshots of your work. A nice little Lego game.

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (2022 – PC, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch)
Lego Star Wars: Skywalker is one of the most extensive Lego games, covering all nine main films in the Star Wars series. From episode 1 to 9 you experience the story about Anakin, Luke, Rey and Co., garnished with the humor typical of the Lego games. You can start the three trilogies in any order you like and relive each of the episodes.
You can unlock more than 300 playable characters and explore 23 planets and the space around them. So that keeps you busy for a while. The perspective is a bit closer than in other games this time, and you can also use a new combo mechanic in battle while using collected blocks to level up your skills. A must for Star Wars fans and those who want to become one.

The game’s soundtrack consists of 45 songs and was designed as a “family-friendly” soundtrack. All songs up to Rock Band 3 can also be used in the game (the format was changed after that), which gives you plenty of supplies. Well-known songs on the soundtrack include Ray Parker Jr’s Ghostbusters, David Bowie’s Let’s Dance and Blur’s Song 2.
