12 Days of Random Gift Ideas (Day 10)

Maybe you keep asking about a Halo for the PS3 or a Ratchet and Clank for the 360. You know what, those things are non-existent, so perhaps you may need to look for some games that are multiplatform.

Multiplatform means that a game is present throughout various consoles, and what better multiplatform game to purchase than...

Batman: Arkham Asylum?

What, you thought I was gonna say Modern Warfare 2?

Well, with such a saturated market for first person shooters, the odds that someone who likes to play games already has Modern Warfare 2 is probably huuuge. But sometimes, people need an experience that doesn't have to hinge on its multiplayer to be awesome, and that's where this game comes in.

Fine, it's a licensed game, but I'll be damned if anyone said that it was a very sh*tty one, because it is far from sh*tty. In fact, it's the opposite: it has an accessible but immersive world that's chock full of collectibles and extra goodies, and what's more is that the fight system is simple yet satisfying.

Not to mention, the Batman this game has is not voiced by Christian Bale, which is always a plus.

If you can't already tell, I'm in love with this game. Atmospheric, fun, exciting, the whole package. Hell, it might just be the thing that will make those anti-Batman friends of yours like the deep, mature lore of the caped crusader.
