1) Batman : Arkham City
I don’t even need to tell you why this game is on top. Definitely the best game of 2011 as this is the first game about Batman on PC this large scale to be released apart from Arkham Asylum . This game allows you to utilize the unique combat system to chain together unlimited combos continuously and battle with huge groups of The Joker’s army in brutal melee attacks.It also allows you to move through the environment with the use of Batman’s grapnel to reach and move around through places, and jump from any height and glide in any direction. As far as I heard,you can fight against Gotham’s greatest villains like Killer Croc, Harley Quinn, Victor Zsasz and last but not the least, The Joker. And the best part about this game is that it is truly authentic to the franchise, but also something really fun and mainly sticks to the comic book.One of the most unusual things about the game is that you have a different location from the Batman that no one has ever seen before.The previous installment, Batman: Arkham Asylum has even made history by bagging a Guinness World Record for ‘Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever’!
