Batman: The Brave and the Bold – The Videogame
We start this list with the Batman game: The Brave and the Bold, which is a faithful adaptation of the homonymous cartoon that sought to capture the essence of the 80’s television show. This animated series managed to earn the heart of many fans, And its adaptation to gaming as well. We have a Side-Scroller Beat ‘Em Up in 2D that, although it is a pretty short game and without a lot of depth, its solid gameplay mechanics and art direction make it one of the favorites among the fans of the character.
Batman: The Video Game
Batman is a Side-Scroller who arrived for the NES and who was inspired directly into the 1989 film with Michael Keaton. This was a pretty advanced game for its time with interesting puzzles, multiple Power-Ups and an extremely similar gameplay to Ninja Gaiden, which is not at all negative. The 8-bit kinematics were simply charming, and also had a classic soundtrack that hero fans immediately loved.
Batman: The TellTale Series
Telltale managed to give us an adventure of Batman that, not only surprised us with all the changes towards the characters, but also gave him an identity of this vigilante version. Both games tell a sensational story, with enough times of turns and surprises to keep the player hooked at all times, although it is also true that his gameplay remained with duty. Unlike the other games on this list, here we have more opportunity to meet Bruce Wayne and the way he interacts with the other people in the circle of him.
LEGO BATMAN 2: DC Super Heroes
Undoubtedly, LEGO BATMAN 2: DC Super Heroes is the best LEGO BATMAN game to date. It is an experience that puts us in the hero shoes and interestingly, this much more comical version simply works. It has puzzles, it has platforming and has a charming story with a lot of references towards the character’s history. This is an experience that both children and adults can enjoy, and in general, it is a pretty fun game.
Batman: Arkham City
Rocksteady made a sensational work with the Arkham franchise, and although we would have loved to have put all the games of this series in this list, the reality is that it would have been a bit unfair. After the fantastic Arkham Asylum, his developers found a way to expand this universe to the big thing, and City finally gave us that Batman open world game that so many years we had dreaming. Arkham City is simply a love letter for fans that combines the best elements of the character, with truly fun gameplay mechanics, and a story so well built that he even received his own comic.
