Best batman games 2

For a long time most superhero video games were, to put it bluntly, a bit shit.

It was an endless procession of reskinned side-scrolling action games, with the odd ineptly executed platformer thrown in. At some point, two things changed. One, games consoles became more powerful; allowing developers to create believable worlds where players could conceivably fly faster than a speeding bullet. And two, a new generation of filmmakers ploughed millions of dollars into making superhero movies that were, you know, actually good. This made the entire genre cool (and lucrative) in a way it never was before.

Fast forward to now and we’re in the privileged position where there are a whole bunch of games that make us feel superhuman. There are a lot of games that let us live out our childhood fantasies, but here are our favourites. Click on through to see the five best superhero games on PS4.

After first discovering gaming on a second-hand Sinclair Spectrum, Alec quickly moved onto Gameboys and PlayStations. It was Sony’s little wonder box that really kickstarted his passion though and he’s been a PS man ever since. He loves games with strong stories and loses a ridiculous number of hours every year trying to revive Sheffield United’s glory days on FIFA.
