Batman is for many the best superhero and no wonder. Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, is a character who trained to physical and mental perfection in order to eradicate the criminal scum of Gotham City.
Is he Dark Knight, he Overcast Crusader, he Best Detective in the World. And his gallery of villains is just as great as he is, with characters portraying different aspects of the human mind, including the Joker, the Riddler and Two-Face.
That is why Batman is perfect for video games, because on the one hand you can explore its superhero action side and on the other its more narrative and detective side.
Here below you will see some games who have managed to successfully portray Batman and that we have enlisted without being tied to a single perspective (because if something taught us Lego Batman: The Movie is that the Bat performs for different tones and approaches, even if its essence is one).

2. Batman: Arkham Knight
It’s the closing of the trilogy Arkham developed by Rocksteady Studios, and although it was not received as warmly as Asylum and CityIt is definitely a title that no Murcielago fan can miss.
