I don't buy games because most are either to short, bad ports, or just a lame game.

Look at FEAR 2 for example a game that could be beat in a few days of just normal playing cause it was so short and same with Ghostbusters.

There hasn't be a epic game released in a long time.

I got Batman on 360. I thought it was completely awesome. It's worth it to solve all the riddles and get all the collectibles too, and it's not even done in an annoying or tedious way. Best game I played this year I'd say.

Download the game I must say they did a wicked job on the game. Going to game stop to pick up a copy because I personally think they did a great job with the game and its worth the $! I just played the first level and was hooked from the start!

I got my copy on launch day, bought it in Oregon, tax free ;)
My thoughts so far.

GFWL is absolute BS! I had to update GFWL so I could enable Physx (and/or Nvidia 3D but I don't have the 3D hardware). And the GFWL update kept failing over and over and over and over and over.... so 2 hours later and a bunch of support thread reading I finally got it to update and low and behold GFWL finally installed the PhysX goodies. What a F*cking croc! I HATER HATE HATE tacked on quote-unquote value. Just WTF do I need GFWL for on a SP game? And WHY is Nvidia PhysX tied directly to GFWL? One has absolutely nothing to do with the other.

GoddamnDRM!!!!!! You know I have no probs with Securom, Steam and limited installs... because that crap has never really affected me installing a game and playing right away. But everything GFWL has ever touched on my PC is either a nightmare to install or just a POS all together. F*ck all of you (Nvidia, Eidos and especially GFWL) for continuing to pummel PC gaming into non-existence with your ass backwards f*cking digital rights BS.

Once I finally got the game to work as it is *cough* meant to be played *cough* it is pure awesome. But that is absolutely no thanks to GFWL. Guess I won't have these probs on my PS3. Too bad for my PC. It will sadly get relegated to strictly email and pr0n duty.

Edit:

Oh and b/c I'm in a pissy mood, thanks MARK for searching the forums for what is one of the most popular games in 2009 before creating this thread... which you named exactly like the initial thread minus a necessary space. Are multiple threads really necessary?

Batman: Arkham Asylum <-- Oh look it's a Batman game thread just like this one!
