Arkham Origins is good, real good.

2 hours in and I love it. The atmosphere is nice and the story is a lot grittier and darker.

Batman is a lot more ruthless and violent/careless due to his inexperience and it's great.

So far it's better than Arkham City and on par with Arkham Asylum.

You've only played it for 2 hours. Give it a couple of weeks and then come back and tell us how you feel.

Again, your opinion is likely being colored by the fact that you just bought a new game and are enjoying it. How do you compare 2 hours of a game to the entirety of 2 other games? You don't.

Except that it's pretty much AA/AC. I've played those numerous times so I am pretty sure by now I know how I feel about it.

If you enjoyed the previous two I don't see how you won't enjoy AO.

I don't get giddy over a new game. If the game sucks I would know, If I had mixed feelings I wouldn't have made this topic (Aliens Colonial Marines for instance).

SO FAR the game is heading a very cool direction and as I play more the more I like it.

You know you want it, just pick it up cheap off Ebay and tonight you and I can play while pretending we're in the same room holding hands like we always do.

The new game high is a real thing.

But it doesn't have to be new game high, a game can fool you into thinking it's good by simply managing to hide most of the big flaws till you're 10+ hours in, like Rome II.

I care about this game so much that I didn't even know it was out yet.
