A Nostalgic Look at Retro LEGO® PC Games from the 1990s
Kids these days. They don’t know how good they’ve got it. At least when it comes to LEGO® video games.
Bear with us here.
Imagine a kid. Called Billy. Billy’s first experience of LEGO video games was LEGO Marvel Superheroes. Billy’s just sitting there, having the time of his little life, whizzing round Manhattan as Iron Man or Hulk or Spiderman, thinking “I bet LEGO video games have always been this easy to enjoy hahahaha.”
Well here’s a newsflash, imaginary kid we just made up.
You sit on a brick throne built on OUR backs. We, who logged thousands of hours playing the original LEGO video games, hundreds of years ago, in the late 1990s. A prehistoric era, when ‘intuitive gameplay’ was as alien a concept as fidget spinners or televised competitive baking.
And you know what, Billy? We loved it. It rocked our brains harder than you, with your graphics and games that don’t constantly crash, could imagine.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of LEGO Games, join us as we revisit three of the most iconic (and infamous) early LEGO video games.
