I rarely write any form of opinion post but all I want to say is this,
As much as I love to hear another Batman game being made, I feel very upset that Rocksteady isn’t going back to creating the future story plot that Batman Arkham City tempted us in the easter eggs and side missions.
Like common I want to see what Hush was going to do with having Bruce Wayne’s face, finger prints and voice. Like what was he going to do?!
How about scarecrow? He had a big order on a future scared plan for Gotham.
Or the so call prophecy on how Batman is going to be the savor of Gotham. Like whats going to happen? Is it do to Hush? Scarecrow? The destruction of Arkham City?
Yeah I know its upsetting that (SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Joker is dead and that Harley is alone with no puddin’ or baby but (as much as I love him) I want to see some more interesting plot line that centers on other characters. We all know that there are more villains than just Joker (and the usual villain choices) that are psychotic and chaotic. Wouldn’t you be happy to fight and face a new villain that has a fresh new feeling to the Batman game series plot line?
I truly don’t understand why they decided to go backwards than forward. They had a very good potential story line that many had anticipated that would create some suspense since we had no idea where they were going with this idea, but nope they decided to go back to phase one where Batman has to re-face ‘new’ villains. If they wanted to do that then they should’ve started with Batman Arkham Origins, Batman Arkham Knight, Batman Arkham Asylum, Batman Arkham City and maybe just maybe Batman Arkham World (Don’t believe me? Look at Joker’s acceptance speech in the video game awards and you see him holding a script titled Batman Arkham World! I was trully excited when I saw it but now…ehh I feel like they just threw that script in the maybe pile.)
This Arkham series would have made more sense if they had made it in this order as it would slowly rise into some suspense and excitement on how much the story expands from point A to point E. This would have also showed how much each character has developed over time as they keep being a part of Gotham. Common DC!! You had a potentially good plots but now ehhhh I’m semi excited for this game since we get to see another new Harley costume, Two face and the Penguin.
Who knows maybe they’ll make Batman Arkham World or maybe not.
