Don't listen to this guy. City, Origins, and Knight are all so similar that I can't imagine how you would like one and not the rest. Knight has the Batmobile and I could see some people not liking it, it's different than the regular gameplay, but I can't imagine anyone thinking it's so bad it ruins the whole game, which is otherwise practically exactly the same as City and Origins but with different level designs.
Asylum is different because it's not a GTA style open world and is instead more like Metroid style exploration. The basic gameplay is still the same across all four games though. It's not that different even in Asylum.
Aside from those four Batman games, the only other really good ones are the PS1/2 era Spider-Man games. People used to overlook the first three, Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro, and Spider-Man (the one based on the movie), but now they seem to get more love, since people aren't as wowed by the open worlds in the later games anymore. That said, of course the open world in Spider-Man 2, and the swinging mechanics that come with it, are great. The actual missions frequently aren't the greatest, but the movement mechanics are just so inherently fun. Ultimate Spider-Man is basically a sequel even though it's not the same continuity, and it's also great. Some people act like they hate Spider-Man 3, but again, I can't imagine why, given how similar it is to Spider-Man 2. I can see not liking it as much, but they're so similar that to say one is great and the other is shit is just absurd. If you like Spider-Man 2, check out Spider-Man 3.
After that they did others that seemed different and I never tried, like Spider-Man: Friend or Foe. Then they did Shattered Dimensions, and I never understood the hype. And then when they did an open world Spidey game again, they acted like it was for the first time, and of course it was never as good. At least Spider-Man 3 admitted it was a sequel. I mean maybe Amazing Spider-Man 2 is good, but at that point I didn't give a shit anymore. Also the movie it's based on is shit. And then there's the PS4 Spider-Man game. Did you ever play Spider-Man 2, but wish there were more times when you did walk and talk segments while playing as Mary Jane or a random negro? Well now you can stop being a shitlord playing Spider-Man 2, and can play as the better, black version. Even though you could already play as a better Black Spider-Man, AKA Venom, in a bunch of games. Also you could play as Mary Jane via cheats in Spider-Man (the one based on the movie). That game has amazing cheats including the ability to play as the Goblin, with completely different gameplay and plot, which is way better than the Goblin on-disc DLC in Spider-Man 3, and one of the best arguments for why Spider-Man 3 is bullshit
More likely it would just be like Injustice, where it's basically Earth-Three but they don't use the Earth-Three character names. Superman there is basically just Ultraman, but if they called him Ultraman casuals wouldn't say "wow it's evil Superman!" even though that's exactly what it is. Or maybe they just want to pretend it's an original concept even though it's originally from 1963 and has been adapted into other media, including games, dozens of times before.
>tl;dr: Batman might become evil but they won't call him Owlman.
Also, a cool bit with the Crime Syndicate worlds is that they're not just worlds where good guys are evil, they're worlds where evil always wins. Owlman is not evil Bruce Wayne, he is Thomas Wayne, Jr., Bruce's evil/crazy brother, who also exists in main continuity, originally as a guy called "The Boomerang Killer," but later as owl-themed supervillain Talon. On the Crime Syndicate worlds, Bruce was shot along with his parents, leaving Thomas as the Wayne heir, with no Batman to stop him. Recent versions have also had his version of Alfred be The Outsider. Alfred became a supervillain called The Outsider in the '60s, after he died and a mad scientist brought him back to life but crazy. Bruce and Dick eventually cured him, and vowed to never speak of it again. But since evil always wins on Crime Syndicate worlds, and since there was no Batman to fix things, presumably Alfred just got stuck as The Outsider forever.
You could basically do a mod of God of War where you swap Kratos with Wonder Woman and it would work well enough. The fact that WB couldn't be bothered to just throw together such a generic game, which would actually be a good way to do a Wonder Woman game, is crazy.
InFamous 2 makes the first game look like a tech demo. It does a lot more with the morality system. Still nothing really shocking, but it does at least do enough to give you incentive to play the game twice, which is nearly pointless to do in the first game. The city is more fun and interesting in the second game too, in my opinion. There was then a standalone DLC for 2 where Cole becomes a vampire. It's fine for a tiny bit of extra content. InFamous Second Son is a step down from 2 in many ways but still a lot better than 1. It then also has standalone DLC, First Light, which is actually quite a bit of content and pretty cool, as far as standalone DLC goes.
>it says a lot about our society when his most popular games are the ones where he's a homicidal tyrant.
About our society, or about the (((people)))
who make the media that he appears in? They have been trying very hard and for a very long time to subvert this character, because he is literally the embodiment of Truth, Justice, and The American Way, and they can't allow any of those things to exist. And yes, it was originally Truth, Justice, and Freedom. So isn't it interesting that last month, when they officially changed the slogan, instead of changing it back to Freedom, they changed it to "a better tomorrow?" Comics are usually all about reverence for the past, and to change it to the original version would have went over much more smoothly with fans. It's almost as if they have a problem with freedom.
Regular people don't care about Superman anymore because his last movie that people tend to agree was good was 40 years ago (and even that one had behind the scenes bullshit that fucked it up, so the last really really good one was in 1978). That show Lois & Clark was sort of successful in the '90s, but not super memorable. The DCAU cartoons with him were good, but casuals usually overlook cartoons, and these ones were especially overshadowed by Batman cartoons. I loved Smallville, but it was on WB/CW and nobody watches that shit channel, and also the show was like half teen soap opera, and they go out of their way to never call him Superman or show the suit until the last episode, so you could theoretically be a casual and watch every episode and have your mind absolutely blown when at the very end of the last episode he turns into Superman.
If casuals were more exposed to good Superman media, they might like him, but nothing that has been promoted enough that casuals are aware of it has actually shown him well and shown why he is a likable and interesting character with interesting stories.
Superman is as weak to magic as anyone else is. He doesn't have protection against it. He is of course weak to kryptonite. Red Sunlight will make him lose his powers. His most obvious weakness is just guys who are as strong or stronger than him, and there are plenty of those. Zod, Bizarro, Ultraman, Mongul, Darkseid, and hundreds of others. Hell, Martian Manhunter is basically "Superman but better," and I'm pretty sure The Flash could beat Superman in a fight if he ever wanted to. Superman isn't overpowered because he fights threats on his level. Spider-Man would be overpowered if he fought most Batman villains, but he doesn't, he fights Spider-Man villains, who are on his level.
