Not to make you feel old, but it won't be long before Batman: Arkham City turns ten. Rocksteady's sequel dropped just before Halloween in 2011 to rapturous acclaim, with many critics and fans calling it not only the best Batman game ever made, but perhaps the greatest superhero game in general.

For good reason as well.
