9. Batman: Arkham City – PS3, Xbox 360 and PC
Nobody expected Batman: Arkham Asylum to be quite that good, and subsequently everybody expects Arkham City to be nothing short of amazing. Late 2011 will see Batman return with all his gadgets from the previous game in tow. Two new gizmos have been revealed on top of this: smoke bombs and a broadcast tracer. Combine this with the Dark Knight's impressive range of combat techniques, a new criminal database and the same open world style of play that defined the first game and you've almost certainly got the best superhero game of the year on your hands.
