Remembering Arkham: Best Moments from the previous Arkham Editions

In the year 2009, I wasn’t honestly exposed to frequent larger than life level designing and mature storytelling in games. So if something brilliantly mature would come my way, I’d go crazy.

It offered a very nice change in gameplay (2D beat-'m-up, with some platforming and 'hiding' involved), while also giving a nice glimpse into the mind of Batman.

It was also just done really REALLY nice, how you very slowly got sucked into those segments, by either very subtly twisting the screen a bit, or by just giving you a real-life scare... which everyone will remember, but I won't spoil it for the select few who haven't played it yet :)

I was hoping Arkham City would do something similar with the Mad Hatter, but sadly that small sidequest was a bit disappointing.
