The godfather of LEGO movie games still remains fun, despite its iffy source material like Attack of the Clones. Get another Star Wars fix before you cross the river Styx.

10. LEGO Batman: The Videogame
An infant’s laughter. The smell of fresh rain. They all pale in comparison to the digital delight of playing as the LEGO Dark Knight. Not as good as the sequel, but still a quintessential life experience when the grim reaper’s licking your heels.

Harry’s harrowing tribulations on the path to maturity mirror your own as you dig further into the Lego landscape. Will you complete your quest before Bellatrix beckons you to death’s door?

Surprisingly superior to its non-Lego cousins, this third LEGO outing in the Star Wars universe has an irresistible pull, like an Invisible Hand drawing you into its inner orbit. And yet, time marches inexorably forward.
15. LEGO The Hobbit
Everything is real. Suffering matters. Death is imminent. Meanwhile, Gandalf chats with Thorin Oakenshield at the Inn of the Prancing Pony about stealing Smaug’s jewel.
