It feels like every 6 months we get a new LEGO game but why wouldn't we? There consistent success and development of mechanics are embraced by its target audience.
This year has given us Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 already which frames the first part of the trailer. On top of that, we see references to Civil War, Thor Ragnarok and Spiderman Homecoming. With the oncoming wave of Marvel films, it's refreshing to see the Marvel comedy reach out through games. And what better choice than through a LEGO game.
I am a massive fan of LEGO. Since playing with them as a child, creating my very own kingdom, weaving my own stories, the history of LEGO has a large affect on many individuals. I remember when the first LEGO games came about, LEGO racers, Lego Island and then LEGO STAR WARS: The Original trilogy hit the shelves and the boom was off. We were flooded with LEGO intepretations of comic book characters and film. And they have done very well. I myself have enjoyed a number of titles such as the STAR WARS and Indiana Jones games. The LEGO games managed to capture the films in a comic child friendly satire that was amusing for families to play.
Then last year we were told about a new game, LEGO WORLDS, a take on LEGO meeting Minecraft/Trove.
