Just like the current state of films, video games have been invaded with superheroes. While in the past, superhero games mainly consisted of beat ‘em up style side-scrollers, modern hero games have gone under a whole evolution of gaming. Titles like Arkham City, LEGO Avengers, and Injustice have all provided fans with fun ways to take control of their favorite hero and unleash a whole slew of powers. A lot of current games may get all of the praise, but that doesn’t mean that other titles should be forgotten about.
Through the years, there have been some video games that have gone under the radar or mostly ignored. This includes games featuring prominent heroes like Batman, The Punisher, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These heroes have been around for ages and fans love to take control of their powers and abilities. Relive these titles, see what games you have missed, and what games are still worth playing today. The titles range from console releases like the PS1 to older games found in your local arcade. See how the heroes were represented, what villains they battled, and what game highlights helped lead to a number of titles in the future.
