Why developers should create more story-driven superhero games.
Try DCUO .Its actually pretty good. Got a ps4 and downloaded it and have been playing for over a month.
Superhero games are a tough one. Batman works because he doesn't actually have powers and is somewhat contained; sure he has gadgets but he can't really fly or tear down buildings or run across the map in less than a second. I think a successful story driven game would need to be massive in scope to be fitting for most superheroes. It would be a big gamble.
It may be why we see so many Spider-Man games too. His powers aren't so crazy so they are manageable and realistically rendered in games relatively well. Personally some of my favorite comic book super hero games though are X-men Legends, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, etc. The powers are somewhat limited but diverse enough and usually well done. I hope we can see some game like them this gen as well.
