The Greatest Superhero Video Games of All Time

Multiple Blue Rings

Everyone deserves a chance to feel like a hero. Unfortunately, we can’t all be bit by radioactive arachnids. We don’t all have billions of dollars to build underground fortresses and kevlar battle suits.

Luckily, superhero games exist so that you can be a hero from the comfort of your living room. This is a rundown of the best games ever released.

Blue Rings

Batman Arkham Asylum is a landmark title. A brilliantly written, genuinely unsettling slice of Batman action. It is undoubtedly one of the best superhero games ever made.

BATMAN ARKHAM ASYLUM

Licensed or tie-in games are often rushed, poorly designed, and lazy, and many superhero games have been ruined. Anyone who has played either the Green Lantern game or the Thor game knows what I mean.

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

Platinum games at their brilliant, bonkers, best. The Wonderful 101 is a wonderfully imaginative breath of fresh air. You play as a vast horde of superheroes who can morph together into giant swords, guns, hammers, and more.

THE WONDERFUL 101

This may seem like an odd choice, but DC did publish an Infamous comic book, so I think it counts. Infamous 2 is a superhero game through and through, and leaving it off this list would be a terrible shame.

INFAMOUS 2

PROTOTYPE

The Pepsi to Infamous’s Coke, each being an exemplar sandbox superhero power-fantasy. They’re both great in their own right, but if you’re a fan of gore (and aren’t afraid of a little body horror), then Prototype might be up your alley.

There are a lot of games that are a lot like this particular iteration of Spider-Man. It’s a bit like Assasins Creed, it’s a bit like Arkham City, and just a little like Sunset Overdrive, Insomniac’s previous game.

SPIDER-MAN (PS4)

Here’s one for the fighting game fans. It may feel like a reskin of a Mortal Kombat game (which isn’t surprising given NetherRealm developed it), but Injustice 2 is much more. The core gameplay is rock solid, and the story it tells is a lot of fun. It’s a lot darker than one might expect, but that’s no bad thing.
