The six best games to play with family this 2015 holiday season

3. Lego Dimensions

Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 

Lego Dimension is a Toys-to-life video game in the same mold as Skylanders, Disney Infinity, and Amiibo. What sets Dimensions apart from other similar games, however, is that it’s both an actual toy and a virtual one.

Assembling Lego bricks is something that most people enjoy. There are plenty of expansion packs available for the game which, while pricey, give players more stuff to build. The big caveat here is that all this doesn’t come cheap, but that’s usually the case with these type of games.

The core game itself follows the familiar Traveller’s Tales Lego format. These are all excellent, family-friendly titles, and many regard Dimensions as the best entry in the series for years. They all contain some of the best cooperative gameplay ever seen in video games and are simple and easy to play, even for complete newbies.

The addition of the Toys-to-life model adds another dimension (sorry) to what was already an excellent game for all the family to enjoy. Whether watching, building or playing, Lego Dimensions can be enjoyed by family members of all ages.
