If you truly want to experience what it's like to be the Dark Knight you're probably not going to get much closer than by playing Batman: Arkham City. As the sequel to 2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum, you'll find yourself battling Gotham's worst in the the new maximum security "home" for all of the city's most vile criminals including The Joker, The Riddler, Two-Face, Penguin, and more. To aid you in your eternal quest for justice you'll be provided with new gadgets like the Cryptographic Sequencer V2 and Smoke Pellets, plus enhanced functionality from weapons featured in the previous title. Of course our favorite past time is using your wings/cape and grappling hook to essentially fly through the air. Kick ass.
The downside? You may find yourself spending untold consecutive hours attempting to complete mission after mission at the expense of your sleep, diet and overall physical well being. Please, for your own sake, play responsibly.
Why it's cool: The gameplay trailer speaks volumes. Take a peek.
