1. Batman: Arkham Knight (Multiplatform)
I really wanted to list Destiny as the best title shown at E3 2014, but after experiencing a theater demo of Arkham Knight in action I couldn’t help but get caught up in its awesomeness. It’s immediately clear that Rocksteady is back in charge of the Arkham franchise within the first 30-seconds of watching the game in action. Visually, it’s a masterpiece, and the Bat and Gotham have never looked more authentic and huge. The inclusion of the Batmobile has been implemented perfectly, and it’s more than just a vehicle for Batman to use to get around the much larger Gotham City in Arkham Knight. He can dynamically spring from it and get right to fighting, or depending on the height of the ejection you can gracefully crash through skylights to surprise the seedier members of Gotham City. Batman can remote control this tank on wheels, and he can even use it during fist fights to subdue enemies with concussion grenades while he juggles them in the air. The level of action in Batman: Arkham Knight is absolutely insane and pure fan service for fans of the Bat. If you were turned off by Arkham Origins I can assure you that Arkham Knight will win you back and make you fall in love with the franchise all over again.
Batman: Arkham Knight is set to release sometime during 2015. Check out our hands-off preview.
