How To Become The Bat?

Batman is undoubtedly one of the most famous superheroes of all time. Equipped with his badass fighting skills, cool gadgets and a "I'm Batman" catchphrase that will leave you thinking, "Why is that his catchphrase" is the superhero we all love! 

You don't have to be a DC fanboy to admit that DC and Warner Brothers made a lot of brilliant Batman games. Even if you despise how Batman is portrayed on TV (I blame you Ben Affleck), you must agree that Batman games, especially the Arkham series, is a gaming masterpiece.

Batman games have been a part of many gamers' childhoods across the world, so let's take a dip in the pool of nostalgia and take a look at the top 10 best Batman games for PC.

Top 10 Batman Games of All Time

There have been numerous Batman games throughout the years; below, you will find a list of the Batman games I consider to be recognized as the top 10. They are:

10. Batman Vengeance

9. Batman: Arkham VR

8. Injustice: Gods Among Us

7. Lego Batman: The Video Game

6. Batman: The Enemy Within

5. Arkham Origins – Blackgate

4. Arkham Asylum

3. Arkham Origins

2. Arkham City

1. Arkham Knight


10) Batman Vengeance

Number ten on this list is your very own,' Batman Vengeance'. Created and released by Ubisoft Montreal in 2001, Batman Vengeance was one of the initial three-dimensional Batman games to hit the gaming industry. The game begins with you as Batman running to save a damsel in distress. Little does the player know that the girl you'd be saving turns out to be Harley Quinn. So, gamers are left with a plot twist as soon as the game begins.

The iconic Mark Hamil's voiceover of 'The Joker' in video games began from Batman Vengeance, and we pray that he never discontinues voicing the Joker.

Apart from the Joker, Batman faces a lot of other villains as well, like Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, Ra's al Ghul, etc. The game features missions where you get to drive the Batplane and Batmobile. Using a multitude of fighting styles and utilizing your gadgets for puzzles and fights, Batman Vengeance was an overall success that led it to be one of the best Batman games to play on PC even today (provided you can tolerate 2001 graphics).

9) Batman: Arkham VR

Enter Gotham City through the eyes of your favorite superhero through Batman: Arkham VR. It is a pretty short game, but this is the closest you can get to being Batman. It is actually a trial game by Rocksteady Studios to analyze the response of users towards a full-fledged VR Arkham game. In this game, you literally get to 'BE THE BATMAN'.

Although the game is short, yet it is extremely fun to play. There isn't much fighting, but you get to use cool Batman gadgets like Batarangs and Batclaw at your will.

If you love VR gaming and Batman, make sure to add Batman: Arkham VR to your library.


8. Injustice: Gods Among Us

Injustice: Gods Among Us Arcade #3- Batman

Injustice is not exclusively a Batman game, but it does feature our favorite superhero. It is a fantasy-themed fighting game featuring the justice league and more!

The first game of its series, Injustice: Gods Among Us, is an amazing game with graphics and gameplay that are still enjoyable to this day.

Apart from fighting and combos, players can use powers that are specific to their chosen heroes or villains. For e.g. when you select to play as Batman, you can use a variety of his gadgets to grapple, stun or damage your enemies.

Each character has a specific superpower that charges over time; when playing as Batman, you signal the Batmobile and crush your opponent!

If you enjoy fighting games as opposed to open-world adventure Batman games, then Injustice: Gods Among Us is a game you'll love.

Injustice 2 has also been released but it seems pretty much similar to the original Injustice: Gods Among Us with updated graphics for next-gen and additional characters.


7. Lego Batman: The Videogame

LEGO Batman - Episode 1 - You Can Bank on Batman (HD Gameplay Walkthrough)

If you are a fan of Lego-themed games, then this game is the right choice for you. Step into the shoes of your favorite superhero in this Lego-themed Gotham City. Many famous Batman villains return in settings ranging from Gotham City to Wayne Manor and Arkham Asylum. The game is fun to play for people who enjoy cartoonish settings.

In Lego Batman, you not only ride the Batwing and Batmobile, but you get to fight enemies in water too through the Batboat.


6. Batman: The Enemy Within

Batman The Enemy Within Walkthrough Part 1 - Episode 1 The Enigma (Telltale Batman Season 2)

Batman: The Enemy Within is a point and click game as compared to other games on this list that are majorly of the beat 'em up genre. If you are a fan of telltale games like the wolf among us, the walking dead, etc., then Batman: The Enemy Within will be very enjoyable for you.

Point and click games usually rely on storytelling, and this game is incredibly well-written in terms of story. It is an overall fun game, and there have been a lot of positive reviews for it.


5. Arkham Origins – Blackgate

Batman: Arkham Origins BLACKGATE Walkthrough PART 1 [Vita] 

The fourth installment in the Arkham series is Arkham Origins – Blackgate, which is a side-scrolling game and not an open-world adventure game like other parts of the series. This game is set 3-months after the events of Arkham Origins when Batman arrives to stop a riot in the Blackgate penitentiary.

This is the first time Batman meets Catwoman, and they both work together to bring down Blackmask, the penguin and the Joker inside Blackgate prison.

The dynamic 2D plane gameplay and hand-drawn comic cutscenes with the return of the original voice actors shows the creativity of the developers. No one could imagine an open-world action/adventure game like the Batman Arkham series could be a hit with a 2D plane gameplay and comical cutscenes, but they really pulled it off!


4. Batman: Arkham Asylum

BATMAN ARKHAM ASYLUM Full Game Walkthrough - No Commentary

The first of the Batman Arkham Series, Arkham Asylum, marks the first Game of Year to be the consistent game of the years' titles forRocksteady's Arkham series. This game was a masterpiece of its time and redefined the then next-gen gaming. With its incredible story, amazing fight to stealth gameplay and jaw-dropping open-world environment of Arkham Asylum, Rocksteady proved what it meant to deliver the best.

This game received tons of positive reviews and numerous game of the Year titles for PC and console.


3. Arkham Origins

Batman Arkham Origins Gameplay Walkthrough Part 3 - Enigma

The third installment on the Batman Arkham series is the Arkham Origins that takes a bit of a dark turn in the life of Bruce Wayne. The game portrays a young Bruce, full of anger and rage over the criminals of Gotham City. Black Mask has marked Batman for death for a 'One night to kill the Bat' and hired eight assassins to carry out this task.

Batman counters all eight assassins and comes out victorious, only to find that it wasn't Black Mask who hired the assassin's; it was actually the Joker portraying himself as Roman Sionis/Black Mask.

This game shows how Batman was introduced to his nemesis; the Joker. This game introduced a much larger Gotham City and fast travel points to quickly travel to different districts of the city with the help of the Batwing.

The snowy environment with adrenaline-fueled fights and stealth missions, Arkham Origins lived up to its name.


2. Batman: Arkham City

The fans couldn't have enough of the revolutionary gameplay of Arkham Asylum and demanded more. Fans asked, and Rocksteady delivered yet another masterpiece that is Arkham City. The second installment to the Arkham Series was perceived even more positively than the first.

With similar gameplay and dynamics, Arkham City continued the story of Arkham Asylum, but this time gamers were introduced to a portion of Gotham City as compared to the first game in which you could only move inside Arkham Asylum.

The large map, amazing story and lots of notorious Batman villains were the highlights of this game. Some still consider Arkham City to be the best of the Batman Arkham series.

Arkham City has amazing DLCs too that came out after the incredible success of the game. In these DLCs you could control Catwoman, Harley Quinn and other characters to see their story after the events of Arkham City.


1. Arkham Knight

Before you Arkham City fanboys start attacking me for placing Arkham Knight on the first position of this list, let me state that everyone is entitled to their opinion, and you have to agree Arkham Knight is much better than Arkham city; in terms of environment, gameplay, and graphics!

Arkham Knight is the latest Arkham series release, and the game is a straight-up masterpiece! I remember seeing the trailer of this amazing game and just drooling all over the screen.

The game is fast-paced, with stunts that will make your jaw drop. From grapple boosting to the heavens above to jumping from Wayne towers directly to your Batmobile, Rocksteady has really hit a homerun with Arkham Knight.

Although there have been significant improvements in Arkham Knight, the most notable improvement is access to the Batmobile. You can drive around Gotham city in your racecar/tank, catching criminals, solving puzzles and destroying enemy tanks in skirmishes around the city!



The following list is what I consider to be the top 10 best Batman games available to play on PC. Whenever there is talk of amazing games of this century, the Batman Arkham series is a must-add on that list.

The developers didn't laze out on these games, and it really shows. With each Batman installment better than its predecessor, fans of this franchise can't wait until the next trailer for Batman Arkham drops. I hope you found this post fun to read and helpful!
