But like the denizens of Gotham he's sworn to protect, fans of the Caped Crusader have stood by their man, patiently waiting for a game maker to step up and embrace Batman as the perfect video game hero.
Looks like that patience finally paid off. Big time.
Currently averaging a smashing 92% on review aggregation site Gamerankings, the brand new Batman: Arkham Asylum for the Xbox 360 and PS3 is already among the year's best reviewed titles. Created by developer Rocksteady and Tomb Raider publisher Eidos, it's a thinking man's action game set in the horrific halls of Arkham Asylum, which the Joker has turned into his personal playground filled with villains, traps, and puzzles. It's dark, scary, gorgeous and fun.
And according to the reviews, it's quite possibly the best superhero video game ever made. So what makes this particular Dark Knight such a bright outing?
