Batman: Arkham Series
- Year of Release: 2005
- Developer: Rocksteady Games, WB Games, NetherRealm Studios
Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham series of games are all impressive. It is hard to really pick one that stands out as the true best, as that would ignore the amazing stuff the others did. All three titles involve The Joker in some way while the third revolves around a Joker that is more psychological than physically present, as he dies in the second game. You not only battle against Joker and Harley Quinn, but you also get to go up against some of Batman’s greatest foes.
This includes villains like Two-Face, The Riddler, Penguin, Bane, Poison Ivy, Hugo Strange, Scarecrow, Black Mask, and many more. Plus, not only do you get to play as Batman himself, but also his long-time love interest, Catwoman. Along with his partner and friend, Nightwing. You even get the chance to play as Azreal, who Bruce sees as a potential replacement for him as the caped crusader. It’s really hard to hate a game when it’s so impressive and well-connected to comic book lore.
