Comic Book Video Games That Should Exist

best-superhero-games-x-men-arcadeHow about that Arkham Knight game play video shown at E3? Pretty sweet, right?  Rocksteady’s new game looks like it’ll truly be the “ultimate Batman experience” that it’s being hyped as. However, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t wish that we had more comic book based games being thrown at us. Yes, there are quite a few that come out in a calendar year, but they’re not all great. For every Arkham game there’s four X-Men: Destiny being shoved at us.

I’ve always had a fondness for the Lego series of video games. From the original Lego Star Wars to the most recent title, Lego Lord Of The Rings, I’ve always had fun smashing things into tiny Lego studs and unlocking characters. Yes, the game play is super simple and the games are designed for younger players, but if they made the same games without the Lego designs people would be all over them.

With Lego Marvel Superheroes, developer Traveler’s Tales have outdone themselves. While previous Lego games have padded the rosters with security guards, goons, and other assorted unknown “bonus” characters; Marvel Superheroes has 100 different characters. While I’ve barely scratched the surface of the playable heroes, the sheer amount of blank profiles at the end of each mission is both exciting and daunting, and I can’t wait to see who else I can unlock.
