It's motherfucking Dragon Age. Don't be silly. Vote for it.

Batman is an easy win here.

Rocksteady said "what? no one has innovated on brawlers for over 20 years now? What the hell? Ok, let's do that now then."

In this particular poll Batman wins.

I love both of these games. I gave my vote to Arkham Asylum because it was the first good superhero game. The linearity of it worked really well, much better than Arkham City or Arkham Origins (sometimes less is more). The Killer Croc section kind of sucked but otherwise it was fantastic.

Dragon Age: Origins was friggin fantastic, but more because it was a throwback to older games that I loved more (Baldur's Gate I'm looking at you). Again, it's amazing how many times people get sequels wrong. Less options but more recorded dialogue sucked. Making it easier and more actiony sucked. No interesting environments to explore sucked. Let's hope the next is better. (Note that this rant didn't impact my vote here, just wanted to recall how much Dragon Age II disappointed)

Darn you for making me choose!

Dragon age.

Dragon Age Origins was an amazing game and it was replayable if you wanted to follow the alternate story paths. I really liked Arkham, but Dragon Age consumed me for more than a year.

I thoroughly enjoyed DA:O

Batman really paved the way for how modern-day beat-em-ups work with the free flow combat system. Really a strong influence on this generation.

I actually think Dragon Age Origins is really trite and poorly paced/written, and the combat does nothing for me. I would not be likely to choose to play it again.

I hate Dragon Age: Origins with passion!

Batman. DA:O had bad combat and characters and the most uninteresting and predictable story.

I completely agree with you. Also the world seems for the most part ripped from Lord of the Rings and its events.

Really really? Predictable story? Batman trotting out the Joker every goddamn time as the final obstacle in Batman's way is the definition of contrived.

Yeah but what about the other bosses in the game? Scarecrow, Bane, Poison Ivy, etc...




like none of the other characters aside from batman and the joker really mattered

This is really, really tough. Two of my favoritest games ever. On one hand, I played through DA:O like three times within a year. On the other, Arkham Asylum is the only game I have S ranked. Craaaaap...

@artelinarose: I applaud you for S-Ranking that I gave up on those damned combat challenges I didn't want to put the effort in on those things. I actually S-Ranked Dragon Age on PS3 along with all of the DLC. That took awhile but it was so fun! =)

It was a lot of frustration and persistence but I got through it eventually. I remember the key was to stop trying to rush through them so quickly and take my time. I stopped attacking all of the time and spaced out my hits so I could react to counter prompts and such. I GUESS I also S ranked Symphony of the Night but I don't think that really counts...

Wait, why are either of these on a best of the generation list? I am utterly baffled.

#67 Posted by RadixNegative2 (531 posts) -

Man, you guys are monsters. I mean Batman is the greatest super hero game ever made, but Dragon Age: Origins is so much better!

I am a sucker for fantasy though sooo.

#68 Posted by Krullban (1471 posts) -

Dragon Age was great. But it was pretty much just another Bioware RPG. Arkham Asylum came along and took something that rarely(if ever) get legitimately great games(Batman/Superheroes) and actually made an extremely innovative and now often copied combat system. So Batman wins this one for me.

Sounds like the work of The Baffler!

Batman wins with prep.

#71 Posted by Hunter5024 (6445 posts) -

Batman has gone down a point, and Dragon Age has gone up a point since I last checked. So there's that.

#72 Posted by Slag (5786 posts) -

Boy this is a tough one.

I gotta give it to Batman 'cause dat combat system made fistfighting fun for the first time in a Third person action game for me. As good as DA:O it didn't do something as revolutionary as that.

#73 Posted by LackingSaint (2002 posts) -

Was there a voting poll whether Arkham Asylum or Arkham City would be in the running? Because Asylum is great and all but City just seems better in every way except the story.

#74 Posted by Starfishhunter9 (385 posts) -

Gonna go with batman. It was just more innovative and inventive for a game. Remember when people thought a good superhero game couldn't be a thing prior to AA? (Yes spider man 2 but be honest most superhero games were garbage). Also bio ware is doing their RPG games since the mid 90's + the combat system is just awesome, combined with the awesome stealth.

#75 Posted by NTM (8516 posts) -

Oh dang! Now this is a hard one. I'm not sure if I can choose. I mean, I know I'd probably rate Origins a little higher, but I'm still not sure about this... Damn. I don't think I'm going to choose. I may, but I don't know.

#76 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2392 posts) -

Batman: Arkham Asylum for just being fun to play, never could finish DA:O as I didn't care much about its focus on strategy and reliance on dice rolls.

#77 Posted by hermes (1801 posts) -

Batman is one of my favorite games this generation. I tried Dragon Age several times, but it never grabbed me. Maybe it was the setting (which I found uninspired), the characters (that did nothing to me), or the combat (which moved from unplayable to broken)

So, even if it was another match up, I would have voted against Dragon Age.

Batman defeats another foe and wins with 57% of the vote and 1013 votes cast.
