Empire Magazine has recently dropped their 100 Greatest Game of All Time list, and in it many games that ComicBookMovie.com users hold close to their hearts appear. Games such as Duke Nukem, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mass Effect 3, Super Mario Bros., and The Last of Us all made appearances on the list. Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkahm City both earned a spot on the list, and both of which were praised for bringing the Batman experience to life. You can check out the full list below.
Batman: Arkham Asylum (28)
"I'm escorting a just incarcerated Joker into the depths of Arkham Asylum when all of a sudden the lights go out in the elevator. There are choking sounds, the Joker has one of the guards! He's escaped! Wait, no he hasn't, I seized Joker by the throat the second the lights went out. Coz I'm Batman."
"Defeating the Joker at the end was just an epic conclusion to an amazing video game. Hands down my favorite game, no doubt."
"It's the pinnacle of superhero games, not even it's sequel can live up to its standards. Finally, a Batman game that does just to the world's greatest detective. Kevin Conroy is Batman, Mark Hamill is the Joker. Enough said."
"Standing up to try and correct my TV at the first Scarecrow challenge. I was so scared the game was broken."
"Batman's second fear-induced hallucination. The way the corridor gradually turns into crime alley was handled beautifully I still have chills just thinking about it. Rocksteady did a brilliant job of staying true to the character."
"The hallucinogenic, truly disturbing sequences where The Dark Knight is exposed to Scarecrow's fear toxin are among the most memorable moments of this console generation. Unmatched, even with the arrival of Arkham City."
Batman: Arkham City (12)
"Being such a huge Batman fan, it was not the solid gameplay, the immersive story or the wonderful visuals that stood out to me, but the many MANY easter eggs hidden around to find. I remember finding a Man-Bat one in the church steeple myself, I was so proud :)"
"Greatest comic book game ever made. I still remember flying for my first time over the atmospheric landscape of the Gotham slums. The attention to detail was so immense, that I am still playing it to this day."
"I loved the final sequence, I never felt I would honestly want to cry after seeing the Joker breathe his last breath but Mark Hamill's performance made me feel connected to him in a way I never have for any video game villain."
"I remember taking 107 hours to beat the game in NG+ because I acted as if I was actually Batman. Instead of gliding over rooftops, I would walk through the alley-ways. Everything was concise and Batman like!"
"Staying up late into the night, getting to *THAT ENDING* and then the answerphone message playing through the credits.... best gaming moment ever." "Always been a fan of Batman. But this game made me wanna put on a cape and fight crime."
