How Batman Made Me Realize That Superhero Games are Dead | Player Affinity

Player Affinity writes: "I just finished Batman: Arkham City last night, and after completing it, I can easily say that it is one of the most enjoyable experiences that one can have on a platform. But throughout my playthrough, I continually wondered what it is that Arkham City does right that superhero games up to this point haven’t been able to do. True, there have been a few good superhero games (the Spiderman games of the PS2 era come to mind), but for the most part, games that are tied to superheroes have been uninteresting. After finishing the game, I started to realize what makes the Batman games (especially the ones made by Rocksteady) so intriguing."

I wish more superhero games could have as good of quality as Batman...

The Avengers game looked like it was going to be good but the idiots canceled it...

OT but they should also make a batman first person game... That would be awesome...

Spider-man games have the potential to be good. If only rocksteady could develop it.

Agreed the quality of AC is brilliant...give Rocksteady the job of doing a Spiderman game

I think I would even trust Rocksteady with a Superman game......and thats ALOTTA trust.

I dont think Rocksteady could make a Spider-Man game if they wanted to. They are owned by WB now, and because Warner Bros. own the DC rights, the are rivals to Disney/Marvel company, meaning they wouldnt want WB to get in on the financial action by commissioning Rocksteady to make a Spider-Man game. (its like Microsoft allowing Naughty Dog to make a Halo game, published by Sony)

Also factor in that Activision owns the rights to all Marvel video-game properties, another block for Rocksteady.

So, considering thats out of the question, would love for them to do a Justice League game, or a Spawn game.
