The best Batman games, ranked

We take a shot at ranking the best Batman games - how does your favorite fare?

The Dark Knight has a truly heroic video game history. Here are our favorite games Bats has ever starred in...

7. Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate

A 2.5D side-scroller set right after Arkham Origins that you've almost certainly forgotten. Combat is crunchy, but the level design is all over the place. 

Platforms: PC, 3DS, Vita

6. Batman: Arkham Origins

The black sheep of the Bat flock, this prequel to the Arkham trilogy lacks the nuance of Rocksteady's games - it was developed by WB Games Montreal. Still, Troy Baker's Joker steals the show. 

Platforms: PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U

5. Batman Arkham VR

A brilliant showcase for PSVR, Arkham tells a gripping story and doesn’t feel like a disconnected Batman toybox.

Platforms: PS4, PC

4. Batman: The Telltale Series 

Can you stop The Joker from becoming The Joker? If that question excites you, you simply must play Telltale's excellent episodic series.

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Switch, iOS, Android

3. Batman: Arkham Knight

For some, Arkham Knight is the best Batman game ever made, while others just can't get behind the game's take on the Batmobile. Whatever side you sit on, Knight is a great trilogy-capper. 

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One

2. Batman: Arkham City

A hugely ambitious sequel that opened up a significant slice of Gotham City release estate for Bats to glide around in. The ending is killer, too. 

Platforms: PS5, PS4

1. Batmam: Arkham Asylum

Batman's finest virtual hour is probably the greatest superhero game ever made. With a pitch-perfect setting and incredible VO performances, Asylum is a stone cold masterpiece. 

Platforms: PS5, PS4
