Interesting how the first in a series is often the best. There's something about the attention to detail and love that goes into the first game that can't quite be replecated a second time.

Very true. Arkham Asylum really stuck with me. Felt more Metroidish than City and Knight although I loved em all. Im a sucker for anything Metroidish though as far as backtracking to previously inaccessible areas.

1. Arkham Asylum (Razor Sharp Design)
2. Arkham City (About as perfect as a sequel as I've Ever seen, expanding on all the elements of the first)

Arkham Asylum and Arkham City work Perfectly together as a duo, the other games feel extraneous or as if they couldn't come up with a story justifying the game.

3. Arkham Knight --- eh fairly underwhelming and poor design decision galore.
4. Arkham: Orgins --- I don't even consider it cannon.

Was ready to cry foul at Arkham City's placing but you're absolutely right about the over-eager treatment of some iconic villains, as if Rocksteady was suddenly given the green light to throw them in but didn't know what to do with them.

Blackgate was very frustrating to play! Agree with you no1 spot! Great article :)

I always find it difficult to rank games like this... great job though. I think Arkham Asylum will always be the favourite.
