    Holy shitty licensed games, Batman! There's been some stink bombs featuring everybody's favourite caped crusader over the years that's for sure. Fortunately there's always been decent Batman games too. Nice vid.

    Thank you very much, before the Arkham games came along a good Batman license was very hard to find. There are some other good ones I kept off the list so there is enough support I'll do a top two best of and worst of Batman games.

    I have Played It and thought it was pretty good but it didn't feel like a Batman game. I hated the overhead perspective. It did have nice cut scenes in music though

    Your Batman toy collection is sweet!

    As far as the games go, man, European developers made some real stinkers didn't they.

    Thanks, as far as the European developers I agree. People seem to like Batman the caped crusader but I just couldn't get into it. A Batman game should have the right balance between puzzle solving and action.

    To be fair in regards to the European developers the Amiga version of Batman the movie was fantastic.

    The sad part is conceptually theres no reason the
    batman should fail in future games.....
    All you need to do to make the greatest batman
    game is just take grand theft auto and instead
    of having a bad/good character just insert hero
    batman.....
    Im sort of out of the loop(cranky kong) with current
    games, so is there a GTA like the way the friday the 13th
    game let online players take up different roles and play
    simultaneosly???
    If so theres the pitch for the greatest batman game ever...
    I could never play any of the retro batman games for more
    than 3 minutes without quiting. Sadly. Now I havent played
    all of them but after like 5 diferent batman games it just
    seemed like a lost cause to even try any others.

    An open world mmorpg style batman could change
    the batman stigma right around....
    Great info in your video.....
    If youre wondering if you should make more, hell yes.

    Batman on the Mega Drive and Batman Returns on the Mega CD are the only two Batman games I need. Sunsoft's excellent platformer did the license justice and Sega's Batman Returns for the Mega CD improved the Mega Drive port of the game no end with the truly excellent music and driving segments.

    The only thing that could've made it better if the game would've had some digitized stills or clips from the movie.

    Batman: Return of the Joker (NES) shoule be on the list. It's a Contra / GI Joe game in disguise. It's fun, but it doesn't evoke the idea of being Batman.

    I would have included it but there were only five spots available.

    tg16 version isn't horrible once you get used to the idea of what it is. it might not be as good as the nes or genesis version but on it's own is pretty good. it feels like a bomberman variant which feels right at home on the tg16 and the music is nicely done.

    This was one of the first game I played when I got a PC engine emulator in the late 90s. The cut scenes are really well done as is the music but it doesn't feel like a Batman game with a top-down perspective.
