#24: Batman: Arkham City (2011)
Last Year: 30

Just like Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City not only proved to be an amazing comic book game, but it was an amazing game in general. Not only that, Arkham City managed to outclass its predecessor in nearly every way (You punched a shark in the face!). While Asylym's level design was influenced by Metroid, City was influenced by The Legend of Zelda series (which is, once again... never, ever a bad thing!). The actual "city" served as the open Hyrule Field and was dotted by "dungeons" with clever puzzles to solve and great foes to defeat. Arkham City also provided one of the best main quest I've ever played, with the story hitting a fever pitch and never letting go. The climax is one of the best I've ever been a part of, and the ending. I'm still shocked over a year later. All in all, Arkham City is one of my favorite games of the generation and I can't wait to play it again once I get it for my Wii U this Christmas. ^_^
