With Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Suicide Squad right around the corner, we are so super close to the second coming of Bat-mania. To help quench that bat-thirst, we’re counting down the best games ever made featuring the Dark Knight.
Batman: The Brave and the Bold – The Videogame
Batman: The Brave and the Bold TV show gave fans a humorous look at Batman’s lighter, campier, more fun side, as something of an homage to the 1960s Adam West TV show. The game matches the shows art style perfectly for a retro-style side-scrolling beat ‘em up.
Gotham City Imposters
If the title didn’t give it away, Gotham City Imposters didn’t actually feature the real-deal Batman, but instead gangs who paid homage to the Batman and the Joker. It’s fun satire and a small nod to the “Sons of Batman” in Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns.
Batman: Return of the Joker
This early title for the NES is basically a Contra rip-off, but it still holds up extremely well and is still plenty of fun.
Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe
Granted, it was odd to pair characters who are all about bloody murder against characters who refuse to kill, but that doesn’t make this fighter any less fun. Yes, I want to punch Scorpion in the face as Batman. Who doesn’t?
Particularly excellent is LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. The game is easily one of the best LEGO games ever done, and you still get all the DC Universe flavour to go along with it.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
It seems like DC got a feeling for the fighter genre coming off of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. A superb story mode and wide cast of Batman characters make this a must play for an Bat-fan.
Batman: Arkham Series
Of course Arkham Asylum gets top billing for being the first to title in the series, but the truth of the matter is that the Arkham series is overall , the definitive Batman video game experience.
