1. Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3/360, 2009)

Seriously, Batman: Arkham Asylum, where have you BEEN all our lives? No other comic book game, DC or Marvel, has ever truly put us in the boots of its character like Arkham Asylum did. You can’t just punch your way through this game. Not even close, Batboy. And you wouldn’t even want to, either; stealth and your wits are your only options if you’re going to survive Joker’s traps, and it’s just like being Batman himself. Nothing even comes close to this game. We’d be lying if we told you that its sequel, Batman: Arkham City isn’t on our list of our most anticipated games of this year. Batman, we heart thou so much. It's a little frightening, to be honest. [VIDEO]
