This game kicked off everything in this Batman series. The starts after the titular hero capture his most recognizable foe, the Joker, and brings him to the Arkham Asylum, it doesn’t take long until things start to go sour, as you’d expect. Joker breaks free, and soon enough, with the help of some other signature villains, he takes control of the facility, and it is up to Batman to resolve the situation.

After Black Mask, the game’s main villain takes note of Batman’s interventions; he puts a massive 50-million-dollar bounty on his head.
