Release date: August 25, 2009

Platforms: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Windows, macOS

This game was the first game in this franchise. This is the game from where it all began. In this game, the joker was captured in  Arkham asylum but somehow with the help of different villain he gets out of the asylum. That’s where your mission will begin.

Gameplay-wise, the game blends simple but fast and immensely satisfying combat with well-executed stealth sections, and the player has an array of gadgets at their disposal, allowing them to approach various encounters from several different angles.

2-Batman: Arkham City

3- Batman: Arkham Origins

Release date: October 25, 2013

Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U Windows

In this game, it shows the player an earlier part in Batman’s career, following a younger and less experienced Bruce Wayne on his nighttime outings. After Black Mask, the game’s apparent main villain takes note of Batman’s interventions, he puts a massive 50-million-dollar bounty on his head.

As batman is less experienced it faces some new challenges which he might not be able to do and hence that makes it one of the most difficult games to play.

4- Batman: Arkham Night
