We all played with LEGOs when we were children and to be completely honest, it’s still pretty ok to play with LEGO sets as adults too. These amazing game scenes recreated with LEGO are living proof that it’s still acceptable to play with LEGOs as adults. As a matter of fact, we enjoy LEGOs on a whole new level as grown-ups.
So without further ado, here are 10 game scenes recreated with LEGO. Enjoy.
1. LEGO Metal Gear Scene
Although a lot of people know about Metal Gear from the PlayStation 1 days, the fact is that the first Metal Gear was on the NES. Most of the times, games back then (and some games today) were about keeping your finger in place on the fire button and trying to kill everything on sight. Metal Gear was about stealth, however, and getting around without being detected. Because of this fact, Snake became a well-known character.
Take a look at the cover of the game if you still have an NES copy lying around. Does it remind you of it?
2. LEGO Mortal Kombat Scene
This game was pretty violent for its day and age because of the fatalities and gore inside it. The violence inside the game only made it better. The 1992 original Mortal Kombat was played on one-on-one matches and with five button controls. The only downfall of this otherwise amazing game was its limited cast of characters. The original Mortal Kombat only had 8 playable characters in total.
3. LEGO Streets of Rage Scene
Streets of Rage is one of our favorite retro games. Side-scrolling beat’em ups were some of the best games available at the time. The LEGO characters inside this scene are Blaze and Axel. The only thing that could have made it better is the cop car that appeared when you pressed “A” or perhaps a boss. We know this is asking a little too much and to be fair, we love this scene as it is.
4. LEGO Donkey Kong Scene
Despite Donkey Kong looking rather joyful in this scene, it’s still impressive nonetheless. The character in the arcade version of Donkey Kong was called Jumpman. It was later renamed to Mario when it first appeared in the NES game. Even though Donkey Kong was a fairly simple game, it was still pretty fun to play and we spent hours on it.
5. LEGO Super Mario Scene
There is actually an entire animation made by Michael Hickox of the first level in Super Mario on the NES. We appreciate the effort, especially because it must have taken him a lot of time to complete. Mario is undoubtedly one of the best video games of all time.
6. LEGO Excitebike Scene
Even though I’m not a huge fan of sport games, Excitebike holds a special nostalgic place in my heart. The videogame was launched in 1985 for Nintendo’s NES and was one of the best games available on the console. It’s impossible to forget the theme song of this special game.
7. LEGO Contra Scene
Contra games were some of our favorite games growing up. While the game wasn’t very complex, shooting everything on the screen was a lot of fun. The game only had 10 levels but this was enough to keep us entertained for hours and hours.
8. LEGO Legend of Zelda Scene
This LEGO scene from The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker is one of our favorite scenes on this list. This game in the popular franchise used cartoon-like graphics which are perfect for LEGO recreation.
9. LEGO Castlevania Scene
This LEGO scene probably looks this well because of the square style of retro games. While I wasn’t a very big fan of the Castlevania series, I still enjoyed playing around with a couple of these games.
10. LEGO Duck Hunt Scene
Duck Hunt is a game that came out in 1984 and looks just as fun today as it was back then. If you had an NES with an NES Zapper you were probably one of the most popular kids in school back in those days. It was fun to just point the digital gun at the screen to shoot ducks. Unfortunately if you want to play this game today, you will also need an old TV as the new LCD TVs don’t support the NES Zapper. Such a pity…
