Avoided the remaster this time and just played the original on PC. I'm glad I did despite periodic jankiness. I think that probably had more to do with my PC than the game itself.

I've played these Arkham games a thousand times each but it's been a little while so I was kinda taken off guard by how great this game still is! The advancements made by Rocksteady from Arkham Asylum to this are still impressive. I know these days a lot of people with open-world fatigue have a fondness for the single location precision of the first game but it's a more complete Batman experience to have him scrambling across rooftops. The traversal is fun, the gadgets are great, the combat throws exciting variations at you without overcomplicating the core mechanics. Character designs are great and the animation is still pretty smooth despite being over a decade old. Do I even have to mention the story? This is easily the best of the 3. more dynamic and nuanced than the first game and way less overly edgy and predictable than the third one. I could make some nitpicks (female characters are still comically sexualized) but it all works a lot better than I expected it to in 2024.

I'm curious to see how Arkham Knight will hit me. I've gone back and forth about whether City or Knight is my favorite of the trilogy. In situations like this I usually favor the more modern choice but I think I generally have more major complaints about Knight and City still works remarkably well so maybe playing Knight after this will put a pin in that internal debate for me.

This one doesn't generally have as high a profile as the Spider-Man games (for obvious reasons) but I think it's pretty special. Insomniac could have phoned a lot of this in or just not bothered making it at all but it's so clear that they injected a lot of love and care into this game. It's absolutely gorgeous to look at, the story is so thoughtfully written, the characters so charming. The gameplay is fun and energetic with a balance of enemy types and weapons varieties that maybe isn't better than Spider-Man but at the very least overwhelms me less. I mentioned the characters already but the performances are fantastic with special mention going to Armin Shimerman. That man's vocal chords must've been ripped to shreds doing this. Nefarious's voice has always been INSANE but it's incredible what he's still able to do with it after all these years.

With Insomniac's commitment to Marvel, It's a shame that we're probably not gonna get a new Ratchet & Clank game for another 60 years or whatever (if we get one at all) because this game really injected a ton of life into this series and its world. Maybe it's not super sustainable to make more of these (this one looks and feels VERY expensive and I know it didn't exactly do Spider-Man numbers) but I'd love to see the new characters like Rivet and Kitt, who they clearly worked so hard to create, have more adventures. In the meantime, I'm so glad this game exists as this gorgeous blockbuster story I can revisit whenever I want.

All-timer. All of the masterful storytelling and impressive game design of The Last of Us but without all the misery. It’s a shame Druckmann’s not interested in doing more with these characters though I respect the decision to leave it alone. A Thief’s End is as perfect a finale as you could ask for, but for my own selfish reasons let’s hope those rumors about a Sony-led, Naughty Dog-assisted Uncharted spinoff turn out to be true. Lost Legacy is clear proof that this series could still dazzle if handled carefully.
