1Fan of LEGO? Then you need to play these LEGO games
This article was originally published in 2019 and has been updated periodically since.
Here at GameSpew, there’s one thing we love almost as much as video games: LEGO.
Luckily for us, the two things cross over quite often thanks to the huge range of LEGO video games available. Rounding up the best LEGO games on PS4 and PS5 has been no easy task, thanks to the sheer wealth of titles available – and they just keep on coming. LEGO games have been around since the 90s. The first was LEGO Fun to Build that released on the SEGA Pico (look it up) way back in 1995. A couple of years later, LEGO Creator released on PC in 1997, and since then LEGO games have been releasing regularly, keeping us building and smashing blocks on our PCs and consoles.
Until recently, most LEGO games came from developer Traveller’s Tales. The company is still at the forefront of bringing LEGO to life, but now more developers are getting in on the action, too. There’s Light Brick Studio for instance, a development team founded by LEGO itself, and Clockstone Studio is currently developing LEGO Brick Tales.
One thing is for sure, though: as video game technology has changed, LEGO games too have advanced. Some of them are still about building and creating – take for instance LEGO Worlds – but many of them take us on epic adventures through the many licensed properties that LEGO work with. Others challenge our mind, using LEGO as a medium to present us with tough and engaging puzzles.
With so many LEGO games to choose from, how on earth are you meant to know which ones you should play? Never fear – click on through to see our picks of the best LEGO games on PS4 and PS5.
