Batman: Arkham Asylum

Released: 26 Mar 2010

Platform: PC

When this first came out in 2009, I remember watching the intro video, and not realising it wasn't video anymore and had become playable - the graphics felt that good. That was 14 years ago, and it feels like the graphics have held up pretty well. I've never really been into super heroes, but this feels very accessible for anyone who knows nothing about it. The acting and animations are excellent, and it really feels like playing Batman. Melee combat is very tight, mostly based on parrying. There's also some really fun gadgets during combat. Mostly linear, but lots of collectables and lore to find if you want to know more about the world and characters. A very memorable experience.
