The 11 Best Batman Games of All Time

1 of 13

This list was going to be "The 10:47 Best Batman games", but that isn't exactly a catchy title. Few would probably get the reference, anyway. But if you do get it, hurrah!

Batman is kinda popular these days. Though he's been on our radar for decades, he really became a mainstream figure when Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins came out and changed the awful taste left in everyone's mouths by Batman Forever. Fast forward 10 years and The Dark Knight is more popular than ever.

With the release of Rocksteady's final installment in the Arkham trilogy, Arkham Knight, not to mention a pretty big movie coming out next year, the Caped Crusader's popularity isn't fading anytime soon. So we thought: what better time to count down the best Batman games of all time? (Just a forewarning however, Arkham Knight is not in the list due to its very recent release.)

    What about the Commodore 64 game simply titled 'Batman'? This was also based on the first Tim Burton film.

    just cause you guys hate Arkham Knight doesnt mean that you cant include it in your lists

    Hey I wrote the list and said in the first slide that it wasn't included because it had just been released and therefore hadn't time to gestate. Truth be told I had yet to play it and therefore couldn't rightfully include it. I have since played the game and adore it! In fact it's the 2nd best game I've played this year, behind The Witcher!

    Also, just a heads up, there is no site-bias or memo to hate certain games, we all work on our own and have completely varied opinions. I've seen the Batman articles recently and disagree with them but that's the point of journalism! Anyway, just wanted to point out that this list is entirely my choices, the senior editors, nor anyone else, made any attempt to influence the choices! And you can rest assured I would include Arkham Knight now!

    You also forgot -- the Arkham Origins multiplayer was fantastic fun!

    I'll admit, I never played the multiplayer....I rarely play it in any game. But I remember seeing a few videos of it an it did look quite fun!
