Batman Arkham Asylum vs Arkham City VS Arkham Origins?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Which one should I get out of the 3? I'm mainly looking for a fun game with a decent PC port. Also is there Games for Windows Life on any of these?

Arkham City is the best one overall but Asylum has the best story in my opinion.

They both had GFWL when I played them but I'm not sure if they still do.

They still do but I wasn't forced to be logged into it to save like I was last time. I just picked up origins but haven't started it yet. From what I've heard though City is still better than Origins.

If you haven't played any of them, just start with Asylum. They're all worth it while on sale though.

Really? I thought GFWL got removed from City and that was why everyone that owned City got a free copy of the GOTY version since the saves got deleted. Or maybe we got the GOTY one because you don't have to be logged in to save, like you said. I haven't opened the game in a while so I'm mostly going off of what I heard.

I agree though, I haven't played Origins, but the first two are both fun (regardless of which one is better). May as well start from the beginning.

I'm pretty sure, but I could be remembering wrong though, all I know for certain is whether it's there or not, you don't have to login to it to save this time. smile.gif

I would highly recommend playing through Asylum first and then playing through City. I don't understand why you would even consider skipping over Asylum and going straight to City. It's not like the games are expensive, ESPECIALLY being on sale on Steam at the moment. Akrham Origins is okay. It doesn't quite have the quality of story that the Rocksteady Batman games have. It comes across as competent filler until Arkham Knight is released. I enjoyed it nonetheless.

But PLEASE. Do not skip Arkham Asylum and go straight to City. So bloody daft doing so. All of the games are quite excellent PC ports and yes, GFWL has been removed from B:AA and AC.

Sadly I only have enough money for one. Guess I'll grab the Asylum first
