Lightyear: 6 Games To Play After Watching

Multiple Blue Rings

Disney and Pixar’s Lightyear is out now… and it’s fine? Unfortunately, the film lacks the creative spark that makes Pixar’s library so remarkable. Nonetheless, it’s a breezy, familiar sci-fi adventure that’s worth two hours of your time. But, those two hours will be better spent when it invariably comes to Disney+.

Clearly many people feel similarly, as Lightyear is deeply underperforming at the box office. There’s plenty of Disney to watch at home, after all.

There are also many lovely, family-friendly sci-fi games to jump into either after watching Lightyear — or instead of it!

Perhaps the most obvious choice is among the most disappointing. Disney Infinity might just be the most remarkable toys-to-life brand ever conceptualized. Regrettably, it was canceled right as it began to hit its stride.

DISNEY INFINITY

This one got off to a rocky start. However, No Man’s Sky has since flourished into one of gaming’s definitive science-fiction adventures. It’s perhaps the closest you’ll get to being a Space Ranger unless you’re actively playing as Buzz.

When Ratchet & Clank hit PS2, people called it a playable Pixar movie. In 2022, there’s a good argument for Rift Apart being prettier than Lightyear. Seriously! This is one of the most technically impressive games of all time.

PIKMIN 3 DELUXE

At the heart of Lightyear is a desire to escape an alien world that our heroes have crash-landed on. Replace Lightyear with Pikmin 3 Deluxe, and the premise is the same! The two properties greatly diverge beyond that, but nonetheless, the underlying concepts are aligned.

This one is for the adults that took their kids to see Lightyear. There’s a cheeky parallel between Buzz’s design at the beginning of the film and Master Chief’s 343i redesign. Funnily enough, the art direction feels somewhat parallel on the whole.
