The majority of Batman games to come out over the years have sucked tremendously. But when the Rocksteady development team birthed the Batman Arkham series they changed how we viewed the caped crusader for ever. Critically hailed as having one of the best fighting engines ever, the new Batman franchise made players feel like they were actually protecting Gotham City. The detailed storyline and surreal graphics provided an immersion that are far and few in between, even more so with super hero games. Even with no connection to the successful movies, the Arkham franchise will have a big ass Batman symbol branded into our brains forever.
