How Batman Arkham Asylum Changed Everything
I have recently been playing through Batman Arkham Asylum on my PS3 and it has come to my attention that we owe so much to this title for games that we have today. BAA was probably the first licensed game that succeeded in every category: Story, Graphics, game play, and even voice acting. It is because of this that we have gotten successful sequels as well as other decent licensed video games such as the recent Shadow of Mordor that copied BAA's combat system. Comic book games, especially, have seen some of the worst adaptations, which includes the dark knight himself. Stinkers such as Superman 64, Batman Begins, Batman Dark Tomorrow, Almost any X-Men game, and Aquman on Xbox just to name a few.
What Comic book games have you thought have been done well? Bad? Who should make a new comic book game? What characters should be used?
