"My love of Lego as a child has stuck with me ever since. I used to play with it a lot.

TT Games' Lego franchise has never had the same scope for creativity as the original toy - and for that there's now Minecraft - but the series is starting to match the imagination of Lego fans via the complex worlds it now offers up for exploration. And amongst 2014's games, Lego: The Hobbit's version of Middle Earth was a guilty pleasure of a world that I kept going back to."
