Batman on GB was a great game that was tough as hell.

I haven't played the SNES version, but The Adventures of Batman & Robin on Sega Genesis / Megadrive was definitely awesome.

Not only its art style was based on one of the best Batman TV shows (Batman: The Animated Series, 1993), but it had everything right: a great gameplay (a mix between a beat'em all and a shoot'em all), a memorable soundtrack (composed by Jesper Kyd, who composed the soundtracks of Hitman and Assassin's Creed series), the featuring of emblematic characters (Joker, Mad Hatter, Two-Face,...), etc...

I have so much good memories of this game...

What no Batman: Gotham City Racer?? There have been a lot of good Batman games some I still haven't even played yet like Arkham City! I'm still hoping Gotham by Gaslight gets un cancelled but I really doubt that will ever happen. Oh well I'm still excited for Injustice and Batman: Arkham Origins handheld and the console version. I hope the Batmobile is in Origins and actually drivable not just sitting there like in Arkham Asylum.

That's what's great. There aren't just five Batman games that are good. It was hard to come up with a list that we could agree on.

Batman Returns on SNES was like Final Fight in a batsuit. IMO, it's still the best Batman game to date.

this list makes no sense!

All 16-bits Batman games are amazing!
My all time favorite is Batman & Robin on Genesis.

Rather "interesting" list.
But if I had to choose, I would rank them as...

5. Batman: Arkham City
4. The Adventures of Batman & Robin
2. Batman (Genesis)**
2. Batman (NES)**
1. Batman Returns (SNES)

** It's hard to rank either of the 1990 Batman games over the other. Both were great.

Batman: Rise of the Sin Tzu for GB was awesome!

Don't forget Batman on the NE friggen S either. Also Batman the movie on Amiga was decent if anyone can even remember back that far.
