There's a handful of questions about LEGO video games on Gaming SE right now. If I have a question about a video game, do I continue asking there since video games are quite different from the physical building sets themselves, or will they be on topic here as well?

I think if the question is primarily about the LEGO nature of the game, then it should be here. For example "What set contains the Joker figure #3 seen in LEGO Batman?" But if it's primarily about the game nature of the game, it should stay on Gaming.

I proposed a similar distinction for the LEGO boardgames on Area 51 - a question like "How can I build a Heroica-scale lava pit?" belongs here, but "How do I rebalance Heroica to make the barbarian's ability less useless?" goes to Board & Card Game SE.

My rationale is what the communities are interested in and know about - questions about LEGO come here, questions about gaming go there.

    Still totally agreeing with you since Area51. – Joubarc Oct 27 '11 at 13:24
  • This is similar to how SFF.SE allows questions about the lore of both tabletop and video games with SFF elements, but reserve game mechanics questions to either RPG.SE or Arqade. For example, SFF would allow a question on how gods in Dungeons and Dragons decide whether to answer a mortal's prayer, but disallow a question on which dice to roll to determine the outcome. – Robert Columbia Apr 1 at 15:38

Yes, I think they should be asked on the Gamming SE as this one is about building stuff, not playing a video game. I enjoy the LEGO video-games but I think they are totally different things.
