No matter how old you become, Lego will always be fun. This goes double for countless Lego video games.

Ever since Lego video games became a thing, they were instantly addictive. And while tracking down a copy of Lego Island for the PC is damn near impossible, there are tons more brick-tastic titles to be had. And unlike special edition Lego sets, these babies are actually pretty affordable.

The Lego video games you really need to own

1) Lego Star Wars: Force Awakens Deluxe Edition

2) Lego Marvel’s Avengers

The Marvel universe is massive. I mean, just look at box office rankings.

Grand Theft Auto is great in theory, but the execution is a little too HBO for some people. For weenies like me, there’s Lego City Undercover. Play as a rookie cop Chase McCain and hunt down criminals in the open-world brick metropolis of Lego City.

  • Platforms: Wii U, PS4, Xbox One, Switch

Price on Amazon: $17.80


10) Lego The Hobbit

The Hobbit remains one of the most time-honored pieces of young-adult fiction. Now you can live out the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, from meeting Golem to slaying dragons, and every Middle Earth memory in between in one of the best Lego video games ever made. This is an adaptation of all three movies, so you can romp around as dwarves, cast magic as a wizard, or heck, even put on the ring as Bilbo. I don’t have to warn you of the repercussions of that.

  • Platforms: Nintendo 3DS, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One

Price on Amazon: $15.03
