Legos allow you to create whole worlds from your imagination and explore the landscape of your mind. Video games are the opposite of that — dropping you in someone else’s world and daring you to explore it while being chased by a balrog or a zombie or a redcoat. But since that’s easier than creating your own stories, we all generally enjoy them. And if the video games are the Lego series, they’ll try to amuse players of all ages with lots of easter eggs and in-jokes. So it’s only natural that you’ll need a walkthrough to fully map the Lego games, especially if they’re the kind that aren’t all-ages by anyone’s estimation. That’s why MAD magazine has you covered in this exclusive preview:
