Top 5 LEGO Games to Play on the Steam Deck

The best way to hype and prepare for Skywalker Saga? Replaying some of the other awesome LEGO games!

Top 5 LEGO Games to Play on the Steam Deck

With the new release of TT Games’ LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and Valve’s handheld console, the Steam Deck, you may have an itch to play a LEGO game on the go. Sadly, you won’t be able to play the latest of these titles on the Deck just yet, but while you wait for Valve to add Steam Deck support for your new favourite game, why not try out one of these five LEGO titles from years past? Valve has verified all five to work on Steam Deck!

5. The LEGO Movie Videogame

Right off the heels of The LEGO Movie’s release in 2014, this videogame tie-in combines all of the film’s charm with the classic gameplay style of your typical TT Games LEGO production. Much like the film it’s based on, this title acts as a celebration of LEGO’s then-65 years of entertainment, with plentiful nods to old kits. If you need a feel-good experience away from home or just want “Everything is Awesome” stuck in your head again, give this game another try.

4. LEGO City Undercover

In a sea of LEGO games that recreate another popular property, fans may be itching to return to a time where each LEGO title could just be a little… different. LEGO City Undercover, modelled after Grand Theft Auto, features a decent variety of action, including car chases. There’s still plenty of that classic TT Games charm, of course, but if you want to see them take on something a little outside of their comfort zone, this is the game for you. What’s especially nice about this being on Steam Deck, however, is that it was originally released for the Wii U. Designed from the ground up to work with a tablet-based controller, LEGO City Undercover is perfectly at home on the Deck. 

3. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

Do you like superheroes? Would you like to fly around a city like Iron Man, sling quips and webs like Spider-Man, and do whatever it is that Deadpool does? Now you can do all of that, and on the Deck. With clever writing and a plethora of fan-favourite Marvel characters with unique abilities, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is an absolutely solid outing from TT Games.

2. The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game

Much like an earlier entry on this list, The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game is another movie tie-in for one of the hit LEGO films. This time, you explore Ninjago, fight shark people, and ride giant robots. Combat is at its peak here, with the power of Spinjitzu at your back. This game’s levels might be too long for short intervals, but if you have a chance to slip down into your sofa and just sink an hour into it, you’ll have a blast.

1. LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga

My top recommendation is, like LEGO’s latest release, another Star Wars game! However, this one’s an oldie, from back when handheld versions of LEGO games were less than good and none of the characters could say a word. Covering the first six Star Wars films, The Complete Saga might not feel as “complete” as the newer Skywalker Saga, but the game is a classic for a reason. If you want a taste of the new LEGO title on Steam Deck but can’t wait for it to be properly implemented, The Complete Saga is the game for you. And if you’re like me and you’ve always dreamed about being able to play these classic LEGO games on the go in their entire glory, now is the time to realise that dream.
