10 LEGO Video Games That Need To Happen

From Time Lords to robots in disguise, which popular franchises deserve the LEGO game treatment?

For The Lego Group, everything truly is awesome. The company's immensely popular toy line has been a staple of many a childhood for decades, with no sign of that simple truth changing any time soon. From theme parks to movies to video games, Lego has managed to successfully branch out into our culture over the years. In the case of the latter, game developer TT Games has found a formula in taking licensed properties, throwing them into a Lego blender and crafting end products that have proven to be critically and commercially beloved.

As such, the following look at 10 popular franchises that deserve the Lego game treatment will be keeping reality relatively in check...
