A history of Batman games

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes - 2012 (Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita)

The LEGO machine keeps on chugging with LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. In addition to the caped crusader and his young ward, the sequel has a Justice League-worth of DC Super Heroes in the roster, along with their accompanying villains. Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and even Superman join the Bat in his fight against block crime, this time with an open world and fully-voiced cutscenes.

Injustice: Gods Among Us - 2013 (Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360, PC, PS4)

It's another crack at a DC Comics fighting game from the developers behind Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. This one limits the fights to DC super heroes and villains only. This one covered multiple realities, pitting the heroic Justice League against corrupted versions of themselves, along with extra hardened super villains. Honestly, the plot barely matters compared seeing a few rounds of Batman vs. Superman.

Scribblenauts Unmasked - 2013 (3DS, Wii U, PC)

Scribblenauts is like a dictionary come to life, and that goes for the DC Comics version of it as well. More than 2,000 characters or terms from the comic come to life, Batman included. In fact, when you want to conjure Bruce Wayne, you have more than a dozen unique ones to choose from.

Batman: Arkham Origins - 2013 (Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii U)

Arkham got a new dev team in Arkham Origins, a game that takes Batman back to his roots. Taking place Christmas Eve night early in The Bat's career, he's being chased by eight assassins as well as The Joker in a frozen over Gotham. It looks like what we expect from an Arkham title, but what new features does WB Montreal have planned? (It's also accompanied by a portable spin-off subtitled Blackgate.)
