Batman Was Great, But Remember, Batman Was Late

Kotaku writes "Game delays are big news and bad news. But once a game comes out and proves to be good, game delays are often forgotten news. Batman: Arkham Asylum was delayed in 2009. Its lead creator recalled that forgotten moment."

I would much rather take a delayed game that is great than a game that is crappy because it has to keep to a release date.

The devs invested a little more time in making the game better. It tells consumers that they're not just greedy jerks. They wanted to make a better product. AA is an incredible game. They made him feel powerful. For a character that doesn't have powers that's a good thing.

I hate delays as much as the next guy, but I'd take a full and complete game over a half assed rushed product any day.

At least it was good. Some games need to be delayed or at least given a beta (Modern Warfare 2).

Blasphemy, MW2 is a good game despite it's glitches and very very short single player that offered nothing more than a 60 dollar waste.

Batman has, on multiple occasions, defeated Superman when it became necessary to do so. I would go as far as to say that Batman is probably the most formidable person in the entire DC universe.

You know, if a game that was delayed comes out and is as good as Batman was, then you tend TO forget that, and the next time those same devs have a game that gets delayed, they get trusted more that it's for a good reason. If it's time well spent, then who cares if it was delayed a few months (of course, if it's delayed time after time, then it becomes a problem, especially if it never gets used properly. Don't want to abuse the privilege).

I'm not sure why Kotaku decided to remind us about this fact for no real reason. I'm sure it's because their favorite system (360) didn't get the exclusive DLC...and they are used to the other side getting all those perks out of multiplatform games. But, then again, knowing Kotaku, it could be anything.
