Hi guys! Been a while since I posted here. Been a while since I posted anywhere for that matter. But anyway, who cares? I posted a brief wishlist of Lego Games I'd love to see happen and wanted to get some feedback from my pals on MobyGames. What do you think would work well and wouldn't etc. Obviously if you're not into the Lego games then just ignore this if you already haven't. I guess I should go approve some stuff now... Take care! -mike

I, for one, missed you around here, Mike. Nice to have you back!
As for the topic, I thought about 2 franchises before reading your article and I'm glad you covered them there: Ghostbusters and Back to the Future.
No, but Lego Minecraft would.
Lego Island III. Like Lego Island, but it plays like GTAVC in the massive sandbox kind of sense.
I still think that a line of "Lego Super Mario" toys and games would be a guaranteed money printer.
Unfortunately I hate all those "LEGO Star Wars", "LEGO Indiana Jones" mix-ups, both block-wise and game-wise.
I'd like a program like ldraw-based CAD stuff with enhanced GUI and visualization capabilities (in comparison to free progs of today and current LEGO builder software: the first offer more options, but look as if still in beta stage, the latter has less blocks).
Or something like Trainz, but in LEGO. Or something like Bridge Builder, but in LEGO. Or something like Bridge Builder, but this time the challenge is to make a skyscrapper... and not just 2D blueprint, but in full 3D - the challenge being "work with the blocks we provided".
Your Minecraft and Simcity suggestions are valid, I suppose. Show me which current LEGO game/CAD proggy allows you to create a small town - the size of several standard block sets - like Minecraft would. My dream would be to have a virtual collection of official sets from "my period" (1980s) *combined* into whole environments (say: all LEGO Town sets forming a town, all LEGO Pirates on an island archipelago and so on). From my experiences all the free software would choke on all the data, while LEGO-licensed games offer limited possibilities (like limited block set).
