Of course, there have been tons of Batman games released over the years, some are good and some are well...incredibly bad. However, when Arkham Asylum was released in 2009, gamers were given the Batman game they always wanted.
Amassing critical acclaim as well as succeeding to resonate with gamers, this action-adventure game featured great gameplay, numerous cameos by characters from the Batman universe, and an excellent performance of the Joker by Mark Hamill.
Although I could have easily chosen fan favorite Arkham City, the often forgotten Arkham Origins, or the Batmobile-centric Arkham Knight, the original is what made us fall in love with series in the first place.
