Three Amazing Superhero Games that Make You Feel like the Hero

If you’re a gamer, there’s a good chance you’re also a fan of superhero content, whether it’s comics, movies, or—who would’ve thought—games. Luckily for gamers, the industry is full of amazing titles for them to enjoy. Even if you’ve never played a superhero game before, you should definitely give them a try, because they have some of the best titles that gaming has to offer. Here are three of the best to start you off. ​

Batman Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City

We could have easily filled an entire list with the Arkham series, but we thought it would be nice to give other titles a chance. Out of all the Bat’s titles, Arkham City stands out among the rest as the most overall balanced game. The free-flow combat is tight, the bosses are upgraded, and you’re given an open sandbox to play in, and that doesn’t even cover the story. The story continues from the events of Arkham Asylum, with The Joker sick and decrepit from having used titan serum. He poisons Batman with his blood and the caped crusader is forced on a mission to save himself and countless others. If you’ve never played the game, we won’t spoil anything for you but know there are plenty of twists and turns along the way.

The newest Batman game, Gotham Knights (which, funny enough, doesn’t feature Batman), is still a bit from release, but in the meantime, this is the quintessential Batman game that lets us be The Bat. Did we mention you also get to play as Catwoman?

Spider-Man (2018) Game

Spider-Man (2018)

There have been dozens of Spider-Man games over the years, some great and some . . . not so great, but the latest rendition of the wall-crawler is by far the best—yes, even better than Spider-Man 2 from 2004. The graphics are next level, the story is engaging, and the gameplay is outstanding. This game does for Spider-Man what the Arkham series did for Batman. You feel like you’re truly swinging through the city as you hop from mission to mission, helping random civilians along the way. You have access to a slew of different web-shooter abilities that can be seamlessly integrated into combat to string together combos, as opposed to simply smacking criminals and occasionally shooting them with the web.

We’ve gotten a Miles Morales spin-off, and now we just need to wait for the official sequel to come out, where it looks like we’ll be going toe-to-toe with Venom.

Injustice 2

Injustice 2

The original Injustice game was a welcome departure from Netherealms Mortal Kombat series, as it was something fresh that still retained elements of what the studio is known for. The fighter took place in the DC universe, allowing us to play as all our favorite characters like The Flash, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and many more. While that first game was great, the sequel ramped it up to eleven with upgraded graphics, precise gameplay, and the ability to completely customize our fighters. You can earn and equip pieces of armor that grant different stats and abilities but also gives you the option to do so for purely cosmetic reasons to give your characters a bit of personal flair.

It’s been a while since the sequel was released, and we’re eager for the next game to be announced.


Become the Hero

These are some of the best superhero games in the industry that truly make you feel like you’re the one behind the mask. If you’ve got a bit of free time ahead of you, either because of a holiday or because you’re recovering from a surgery like the kind offered at, consider picking one of these titles up and giving it a try. And if none of these appeal to you—for some strange reason— there are plenty of other superhero games out there, such as Infamous, Deadpool, and Guardians of the Galaxy.
