LEGOs and video games have been intertwined since the 90s. Since then, there have been many LEGO video games that have earned plenty of praise from fans and critics. The relationship between video games has always been seemingly one-sided with there being LEGO video games but not video game LEGOs. This started to change with the introduction of Super Mario LEGO toys and will continue when the LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog set is released.
