For this list, we’re looking at games based on any and all DC Comics properties that have been hugely successful…so you know, the exact opposite of Superman 64.

#10: “Batman: A Telltale Series” (2016)

One of the most recent entries in the DC Video Game Roster, Batman: The Telltale Series, just might be the most unique game on this list. With moments where you can change the psyche of Batman at your leisure, this is as in depth a look at the mind of Bruce Wayne as you might get in a game. Of course there’s still the fun of planning out a raid on bad guys, quick time events to keep you on your toes, and some stellar animation and voice acting to add to the overall enjoyment factor.

#9: “Justice League Heroes” (2006)

When the darkest forces in the universe threaten planet Earth, the Justice League is there to take them on. Justice League Heroes is isometric Diablo style dungeon crawler, similar to Marvel’s X-Men Legends and Ultimate Alliance Games. Here, you can team up with a friend to unleash the full might of the JLA on foes like Braniac and Darksied. The title also boasts a pretty darn good plot, written by the late Dwayne McDuffiee, who wrote several tales for the DC Animated Universe series. There’s nothing like having the power of the most powerful heroes on Earth at your fingertips. Grab a friend and let the beatdowns begin.

#8: “The Adventures of Batman and Robin” [SNES Version] (1993)

Long before the DC Games made the leap to 3D, they had a pretty healthy run 8 & 16bit era, and Adventures of Batman and Robin for the SNES is a prime example. Taking place in the Bruce Timm verse, this two player side scrolling beat up has players traversing Gotham as the dynamic duo, taking down rogues left, right and center. The art style is still the same as the animated series, which is always a plus, and Batman’s rogue’s gallery is fully stocked here.

#7: “Lego Batman 2: DC Heroes” (2012)

Sometimes, even Batman needs back up to save Gotham City. Like many Lego sequels before it, Lego Batman 2 takes everything that made the first game great and kicks it up a notch. The cast of characters is nearly as infinite as the items you can construct with in game Legos. Factor in the quick witted and self referential humor that Lego is well known for and you’ll see why this continues to be one of the most beloved DC Video Game franchises out there. Plus the game contains John Williams’s iconic Superman movie theme, you can’t have a more epic flight theme than that.

#6: “Scribblenauts Unmasked” (2013)

It doesn’t always have to be dark and brooding when it comes to DC. Sometimes, it can be cute too, just look at this crossover with DC Comics and the popular puzzle series Scribblenauts. In this game you play as series mascot Maxwell, who has the ability to summon virtually anything you can think off to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. Only this time he can now also summon anything and anyone from the DC Universe, which you’ll be needing since the game also takes place within said universe; From the streets of Gotham, to Lantern Corps HQ, to the Daily Planet, there’s plenty of fanservice for any DC fan to get excited over.

#5: “DC Universe Online” (2011)

When Braniac invades the Earth in the future, Lex Luthor travels back in time to warn the Justice League and begin a new era of heroism. This MMORPG gives players the ability to create a custom hero from a wide variety of skills, powers and costume designs, and let them kick butt across the DCU. There are hundreds of missions, regularly updated, and there’s a good chance you’ll end up running into your favorite heroes. DC Universe Online continues to see community support and has even made the leap from PC to console in recent years, expanding its player base reach and giving players the chance to be the hero of their dreams.

#4: “The Wolf Among Us” (2013)

And now we take a step away from the superheroes and pay a visit to other side of DC. The Wolf Among Us is based on the Fables series from DC Vertigo and follows sheriff Bigby Wolf, on the trail of a vicious killer. Similar in style to Telltale’s Batman Video Game, The Wolf Among Us is an interactive story with several outcomes depending on the players choices. The game has also received praise for its visual style and faithfulness to the Fable source material. It’s fun blend of fantasy and noir mystery. See? It doesn’t have to be just Superheroes who have all the fun in the video game realm.

#3: “Batman: Arkham Asylum” (2009)

Batman faces his greatest challenge yet when The Joker seizes control of Arkham Asylum and traps The Dark Knight inside. It’s the Batman thrill ride gamers always wanted with Rocksteady Studios at the helm. You got the tools, detecting skills and, of course, the brutal fists of the Dark Knight Detective to navigate your way around the most dangerous building on the planet. Many of Batman’s signature foes make an appearance and you’ve even got legendary Batman and Joker voice actors, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill respectively, back in the mix. This was a dream come true for Batman fans and the first step towards one of the best video game franchises ever.

#2: “Injustice 2” (2017)

The sequel to 2013’s hit superhero smack-down fighting game, “Injustice: Gods Among Us”, “Injustice 2” doubled down on all the things that made the original so good. A bigger and more diverse roster of heroes and villains, a more engaging story and deeper combat mechanics make this game a strong contender for not only the best superhero game of 2017, but also the best fighting game of the year. We can’t stress how well this game manages to capture the feeling of superpowered beings smashing the absolute crap out of each other and how fun it is to re-create your favorite comic book rivalries with your friends.

#1: “Batman: Arkham City” (2011)

Batman is trapped in a sealed off section of Gotham City run by the insane…must be Christmas for The Dark Knight. Arkham City takes everything that worked with Arkham Asylum and pushes it to near perfection. The controls are smoother and the combat is more fluid. There are dozens of ways to take down opponents, from simple snatch and grabs to step by step walkthroughs and plan outs. Add in a ton of bonus content, including a Catwoman side story, and you’ve got the best Batman game, neigh the best DC Comics Video Game ever made. This is the game that brings players as close as they’ll ever come to being the goddamn Batman.
