How to Train Your Dragon knocked me out back in March–So much so that I actually bought the Wii game. The game (DOA-style arena dragon fighting with a terrific hub village) is actually quite fun, butâ€”in retrospectâ€”I shouldâ€™ve just gone to see the film again. Now that Dragonâ€™s hit DVD and Iâ€™ve already watched it more times than I revisited the game, I looked back on the movie-based videogames Iâ€™ve purchased over the years. Have any been worth more than the cost of the original film on DVD?
GoldenEye, definitely. Aladdin on Genesis.
Can you name any other movie games worth more than $16.99? Tribute games like Kingdom Hearts and Epic Mickey don’t count in this poll–Qualifiers have to be named after their films.
There are few perfect things in the world. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Pixar. Walruses.
Lego sets never have missing pieces. Lego always works, always inspires, and never disappointsâ€”even in videogame form. Lego Star Wars proved that blasters plus exploding Lego equals awesome. Lego Indiana Jones? Not quite as good, but well done. Lego Batman? Solid. Lego Rock Band? Hilariously fun. Lego Harry Potter? Best Lego Game Yet!!!
Seriously, any game that can turn Cedric’s murdered body into comedy without being offensive is a work of genius.
The world gets better every time a new Lego game is released. We need more. Here’s a short list of properties I’d love to see Lego-ized:
