Batman Arkham Games Ranked

As a huge fan of the series and the release of Arkham Knight about a week ago, here's my ranking of the games.
1Miami Horror
Illumination


Arkham City - 10/10. The best in the series for great reason. The boss fights were extremely memorable and had great character and charm to them. The environment was not too big but not too small. The open world aspect of it was not overly ambitious and pressurized. It was the perfect mix of linear and sandbox elements into the game play. It was a great leap from Asylum's story. The graphics are still amazing as they were when the game first came out. Tons of easter eggs and batman lore for all the comic book fans. There were little to no issues with the game and the ending was amazing.
2Low Roar
Low Roar


Arkham Asylum - 9/10. The first game was superb. No sandbox and open world environments were great because they can become overbearing, however the game was still able to offer a ton of replay value with increasing difficulties, challenge maps, and riddler investigations. The bosses were a tad tedious, but it was the first game setting the bar high. Mark Hamill as the Joker was fantastic and all the character designs were fresh and high quality without polarizing classic batman fans.
3Vampire Weekend
Modern Vampires of the City


Arkham Knight - 8.5/10. Great game, but it is a step down for multiple reasons. In my opinion the even bigger environment than Arkham City is a little washed up, not a very big deal though as you can get around fast with the exciting batmobile, however the game relies a little too much on the batmobile. Also (possible spoiler) I was not entirely fond of the Joker coming back into the game. I liked him being dead in Arkham City, but they couldn't just leave him alone it always has to be about the Joker and never giving the other villains the spotlight like they did Scarecrow in this game. The Joker even appears more in this game than I think the previous two Rocksteady games. There are also a lot of repetitive and annoying red herons in the story that begins to come bland. But the gameplay, graphics, and extras in the game are amazing. The ending needed a final boss fight though. That's another thing however, lack of great boss fights.

Arkham Origins - 6/10. Rehashed material with no innovation. When I heard Black Mask was going to be the main villain I was super excited, like I said above, giving the other villains their main role than always having the joker 24/7. But nooo (spoiler) turns out the Black Mask is the Joker, and he doesn't even possess the same charisma as the previous two games. The city is bleak and boring compared to Arkham City, filled with filler areas. The boss fights took a major step down from City and went back to the repetition found in Asylum. Bane's boss fight in the very end is pretty laughable. I can across quite a few lag and glitches in the combat as well. Nothing new, but deep down I had a decent time playing the game.
