Kotaku - "What would Batman do?" That's a driving principle behind the upcoming game Batman: Arkham Origins. And, sure, that's what the people making any game about a famous character are going to say. Still, how do they do that?
Part of it is having you control a guy that looks like Batman. Part of it is having you not kill people. There's more to it than that.
"I'm going to assume you have some passing interest in Batman if you're playing a Batman game," the game's creative director Eric Holmes told me recently while I played a demo of Origins at a PlayStation event in New York City. "You kind of want to play him as he's classically depicted."
