    I never understood the love for the NES Batman. I always seemed to hear positive things about it but I hated it as a kid. Batman returns for Snes was much better. Or even that Joker Genesis one.

    It was a pretty well designed game, and the soundtrack was really good too. Well, aside from the first two bosses requiring you to only sit in one spot to beat them, it was well designed. It really didn't take much from the license though. I could see why some kids wouldn't like it, as it was pretty unforgiving, almost at the same level as Ninja Gaiden. I think with Batman, I got to level 4, maybe level 5 when I was 9 years old. But I didn't beat it until I borrowed the game again when I was 12 or 13.

    I used to love The Caped Crusader on my C64; I don't think I ever completed the Joker's portion of the game though. It was great fun trapping a henchman in the corner and repeatedly kicking him in the air. Good times.

    Good article. Some of these I have and haven't finished or played. I feel like I need to play them just to experience whatever they have--or don't have--to give.

    FYI, there was also a PC version of the Batman Returns game, but this one was very differant to the SNES and Genesis versions, it was more of an adventure RPG that had you exploring Gotham City to find and stop Penguin, unfortunately, I dont remember it being any good, which is probably why it was missed out...

    I liked Vengeance, it was my favorite super hero game until Spider Man 2.

    Batman had some shady beginings, but its good to see him at the top currently.

    Unfortunately, chucking the Joker off the cathedral wouldn't be out of character for the Tim Burton Batman. One of the MANY reasons I hated those two films.

    Nice list. Didn't know about most of these.

    Great list! Some of my favorite games are Batman titles, however, I'd appreciate opinions and some better fact checking. The NES and Genesis Batman (1989) games are completely different other than being sidescrollers, so to call them the same is a big stretch. Also, the Sega CD Batman &Robin game is 100% vehicles and cutscenes.

    Batman Arkham Asylum is my favorite. It's serious, but not overdoing it like City. I mean, I love Arkham City, but I don't like the ending. As soon as they announce that Joker's alive and well, I'll be playing AC much more often.

    I was always under the impression that the Joker he was carrying at the end was Clayface. It's mentioned a couple times during the game that there was something going on along those lines.

    no Batman Returns on Sega CD? that was worth a mention on how terrible it was same for the Atari Lynx hard as nails
