#5 – Lego Dimensions
Lego Dimensions has over thirty franchises featured in it. It includes The Wizard of Oz, Adventure Time, and Beetlejuice. Furthermore, it includes some of the most beloved characters from the most popular culture like Batman, Scooby-Doo, Gandalf, Ghostbusters, and more. Having so many characters and content crammed into a game’s storyline makes it easy for the developers to ruin an otherwise beautiful game. Too much diversity often turns games into a confusing mishmash of parodies. However, TT Games managed to create a game that avoids this pitfall and created something so lovable and fun. You’ll surely enjoy this game with all its humor.
#4 – Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is an iconic game among the franchise. Here, the game developers started to add spoken dialogues cast with voice actors. Furthermore, this gamble paid off well for the franchise and became a template for the succeeding game titles. The dialogues added color and humor to the storyline making the game so much relatable to its audience.
