July 16, 2012, 2:11 PM — As we get closer to Friday's release of the latest Batman movie, I'm expecting to see many more Batman-related videos. Here's another one: The folks at Machinima have posted an impressive video highlighting the history of Batman in video games. The three-part series of videos debuted today with part 1, looking at some very early computer games through the early '90s (with the release of movie-tie-in games from the Tim Burton movie era).
There was a feeling amongst a lot of gamers that most of the games around Batman were never really good until the release of current games like Batman: Arkham Asylum (and its awesome Arkham City sequel), as well as the Lego Batman series. I'm currently playing Batman Lego 2 and agree that it's a great game. I can't wait to see the other two parts to see all of the other attempts at making a good Batman video game.
