Arkham Asylum

Thanks to my wife clearing out the evenings, I played and finished Batman: Arkham Asylum in a week on February 28, 2016.

Here are a few (few!) quick thoughts about the game; there’s so much that could be said:

  • “No one’s that selfless…” from the Riddler and “What are you??” from Scarecrow – both quotes about the inability of evil to understand anything but itself
  • The interaction of the villains, what they think of each other and how they comment on each other’s behavior was really well done
  • The dates on the tapes, hint/point to a larger world (you didn’t have to include that kind of detail) Each of the tapes is a mini-story in itself, and the Harley getting with Joker, Scarecrow being bested, Zsasz and his doing, etc.

The game started me down the Arkham road and has let to some of the best story, combat, and all-around enjoyment I’ve had with this hobby.
