8. Batman: Arkham City

Developed by Rocksteady Studios, Published by Square Enix and WB Games

With the success of Arkham City, the Arkham series has been confirmed as the prime example of how to do a licensed game right. In crafting these puzzle-brawlers with such intense care for the source material, Rocksteady has made two fantastic games while maintaining the integrity of the Batman brand. Arkham City is like Zelda mixed with God of War mixed with the kind of gadget-driven James Bond game that we all wish existed.
