Point of order I never have considered playing a legos game a subsitute for building with legos. The point of legos games is simple puzzle solving not building.
Its a stupid comparison to say you rather have your kid build. You could say that vs playing ANY video game.

The Xtreme Death Star Playset will be in firing range of Aleraan in five minutes! Everybody get to the X Wing Carrier Assault Playset! Climb into your X wings (sold separately). Be sure to shoot a photon torpedo (on sale at toysrus.com, 2 for 1 special until the end of the week!) into a small thermal exhaust port. Do not attempt to improvise a different type of Lego into the port cause it'll get stuck. Everybody remove your hair so you can put your helmets on, and then we're outta here!
Oh no, it turns out that we can only defeat Darth Lego with the Special Edition 2013 Golden X Wing! True Believers at home, go tell your parents to get you the Gold Special Edition X Wing, or Alderaan will be destroyed! Use the Force to submit an order at www.lego.com today!

If they visit friends, we make sure the parents understand limits on video games. Nothing violent, and time limits as well.
So, video games are there, but we pretty much control how much and what.
If we wanted, we could have them not have access to any video games. But, we decided that in small doses and no violent games is appropriate for their age and development. We encourage them to play more intellectual games, puzzles, math games, stuff like that and they do, because there is stuff out there that is educational but fun at the same time.Falling for Judo since 1980
