The best Lego video games you can play right now

At That Brick Site, Lego is of course number one. But we also love video games. Luckily for us, the two have crossed over quite a lot. There’s are plenty of Lego-themed video games out there, and here we’re rounding up the best of them.

Lego games have been around since 1995, with the first ever released being Lego Fun to Build on the SEGA Pico. Two years later, virtual brick-building sandbox Lego Creator released on PC in 1997. Since then, Lego games have come on leaps and bounds. Now, we’ve got everything from action-adventure games, puzzle games and even racing games.

But with so many modern Lego games to choose from, how on earth are you meant to know which ones you should play? Never fear – here are the best Lego video games you can play right now.

1. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

  • Available on: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch and PC

At one point in time, the only Lego games you could buy were from developer Traveller’s Tales. The company recreated popular media in Lego form, letting players loose in a familiar world, but one made out of bricks. The last game to come from this series of adventure games is Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and, if we say so, it’s undoubtedly the best Lego game you can currently buy.

The Skywalker Saga tells the story of all nine mainline Star Wars films, letting players enjoy the stories while collecting bricks, bashing stuff, exploring the world of Star Wars and collecting hundreds of characters. All characters have their own unique set of skills, so you’ll need to find the right minifigure for the job a you progress through the game. There’s dozens upon dozens of gameplay here, playable alone or in co-op, and we can’t get enough of it.

2. Lego 2K Drive

  • Available on: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch and PC

One of the newest games on this list, Lego 2K Drive is an open world Lego game but it’s all about — you guessed it — driving. It’s a racing game, but it’s not just a racing game: there are events to take part in, lots of hidden things to collect, and dozens upon dozens of side quests to take part in. All of this happens from the comfort of your vehicle, of course, and so you’ll be speeding and drifting around the world like a speed demon.

Perhaps one of our favourite parts of Lego 2K Drive is that you can build your own cars completely from scratch. You could even feasibly take real Lego instructions and build an actual Speed Champions car in the game. But with so much to do and enjoy, Lego 2K Drive is well worth jumping into for any Lego fan.

3. Lego Builder’s Journey

  • Available on: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, PC and iOS

Lego Builder’s Journey is unlike the other games on this list of best Lego video games. It’s an intricately-designed puzzle game, tasking players with getting their character from one place to another. You’ll need to build bricks to create a safe path, avoiding obstacles and following the rules of each level. It’s challenging, but a wonderfully relaxing and thought-provoking game.

We particularly love how fantastic Lego Builder’s Journey looks. It’s been created out of a real selection of bricks, and every level of the game looks like it could be a photograph. It’s stunning. Our only complaint? The characters in the game are made out of bricks, rather than being minifigures. But we can live with that.

4. Lego Harry Potter Collection

  • Available on: PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC (playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S)

Originally released as two separate games, the Lego Harry Potter Collection brings both Years 1-4 and 5-7 together in one cleaned-up collection. With two games to play through, spanning all seven years of Harry’s time at Hogwarts, the Lego Harry Potter Collection packs in a lot of game. There’s well over 50 hours of gameplay here if you want to see everything that the games have to offer.

The Lego Harry Potter Collection’s main levels will see you learning important spells, taking part in lessons and doing what Harry Potter does best: fighting the evil forces of He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named. But there’s plenty to do outside of the main campaign, too.

The Lego version of Hogwarts is sprawling and beautiful, packed with so many secrets to uncover. And if you’re a fan of the books or movies, there are tonnes of references that you’ll be sure to get a kick out of. With so much to do, it’s undoubtedly one of the best Lego video games you can play.

5. Lego City Undercover

  • Available on: PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC (playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S)

One of the few Lego games from Traveller’s Tales without a franchise attached, Lego City Undercover is, without a doubt, one of the best Lego video games out there. It’s essentially the family-friendly answer to the Grand Theft Auto series; a vast open-world game that sees you take on the role of Lego City police officer, Chase McCain.

While there is a substantial story to follow, the true joy of Lego City Undercover is in exploring the world, finding secrets, and completing side quests and missions. Whether it’s helping a civilian find a lost item, taking part in a high-octane car race or chasing down some no-good criminal, there’s tens of hours of fun to be had.

6. Forza Horizon 4: Lego Speed Champions

  • Available on: Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC (You’ll need the Forza Horizon 4 base game to play)

Okay, so this isn’t technically a full Lego game, but we’d be foolish if we didn’t include this excellent DLC when talking about the best Lego video games ever made. A additional content pack available for Xbox-exclusive racing game Forza Horizon 4, Lego Speed Champions transports you to an all-Lego world, puts you behind the wheel of a Lego car, and invites you to have a lot of fun.

The world itself is a joy to explore, and you’ll get a kick out of seeing some real-life Lego sets as you drive around. Of course, the aim of the game is to race, but there’s plenty of fun to be had off-track too. There are dozens of challenges to complete, and you can even freely drive around, simply destroying the world if you want. It wouldn’t be a Lego game if you couldn’t.

7. Lego Marvel Super Heroes

  • Available on: PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC (playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S)

What could be better than a Marvel and Lego crossover? Well, not a whole lot. Aside from Star Wars, Marvel has become one of Lego’s most-loved franchises, and it works so well in game form, too. With a massive range of minifigures to unlock and play as, covering all corners of the Marvel Universe, there are so many potential skills and abilities to unlock by playing as them all. Fly around as Iron Man, or smash up the streets as the Hulk; however you play, Lego Marvel Super Heroes is a lot of fun.

While Lego Marvel Super Heroes has a great campaign, particularly if you are a Marvel fan, it’s the open world that is most enjoyable. The game’s recreation of New York City is fantastic. It also packs in a lot of extracurricular activities outside of the main story mode. It’s not quite to scale, but there are a lot of familiar landmarks to explore. You can lose hours simply wandering around and helping out NPCs in side quests.
