Video games weren't as prominent in every household when I was growing up, but one of my best memories was playing along with my mom and brother. We'd stay up late, my mom would want us to stop but then join in only to play more. I always tell my children, I'd rather them be playing than watching someone else play. My son is the primary player, I come and go since I have so much else to do during the day, and my 4 year-old fights me for the remote every time I try to sit and play. These games have become our new favorites to play together. It has truly surprised us in how much fun LEGO Worlds is, and surprised at how fun a little innocent competitiveness can be with Cars 3: Driven to Win.
Players can embark on a quest to find a sword for a king, protect a farmer from a zombie invasion or build a home for a caveman; there are always new things to discover as they aim to become a Master Builder.
My 9-year old said that it is easy enough to play, but not too easy that it is boring. He enjoys a challenge but doesn't enjoy when it takes the fun away. He is fairly a beginner in video gaming so I respect his opinions when it comes to games geared for children in his age group. I love the games myself, it is easy to play but like my son said - not too easy. Surprisingly my 4-year-old has had no problem playing too. In LEGO Worlds she typically roams around looking for a horse or cool creature to ride on. My husband grabbed the remote to help my daughter out at one point, and almost didn't let go of the remote. So it's safe to say, it's a family-friendly game that the whole family an truly enjoy.

I personally love that although there are moderately violent parts in LEGO Worlds, it isn't graphic and inappropriate for children. So far, it truly seems like there is no end to the fun of these games. For LEGO Worlds the game is very much controlled by the player, where you want to discover, build, and adventure is all up to you. The 20 tracks and customizing gives young children a step into video gaming fun, while still being fun for older kids. I have to be a grown-up and make the game time end, or else we would all play with it forever. Both games are a must-have family video games that allow you to play with friends and family with a split-screen.
