Comic book superheroes have been a popular topic in video games, and quite a few successful superhero games have been made. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 6 best Superhero games to play on PC.

1. Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Arkham Asylum by Rocksteady Studios. It is an 'Open World Action-Adventure game that incorporates one of the best blends of action and stealth mechanics in any game in its genre to date.

Arkham City is the best Arkham game in the trilogy.

As the sequel to the amazing Arkham Asylum, City had a lot to live up to. Fortunately, it's not only on par with the original but in many ways surpasses it. With NG+, more collectibles, more sidequests, and plenty more iconic enemies to beat down, this game really has it all.

Most importantly, the combat is still responsive as ever, and they barely changed anything, only adding new gadgets to Batman's arsenal. After all, "If it ain't broke don't fix it," and Asylum's combat was anything but. Plus, the story is incredible, and even though it goes entirely off the rails for a while, it never stops being a fun ride. The entire climax feels like multiple mind-blowing twists in a row, and they do not disappoint.

2. Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is a fantastically fun game. For many people, Spider-Man used to be the one game you bought a PS4 to play, a system seller. Just the fact that this is now on PC is kind of a miracle. That the game also happens to be a stellar PC port is just the cherry on top.

What makes Spider-Man stand out from other open-world ones is the traversal. Insomniac absolutely nails the movement of Spider-Man. You could see shades of this system in their old game, Sunset Overdrive. Here, it's so fun just swinging and web-slinging from building to building that I didn't even bother with fast travel for 99% of my playtime.

The combat is pretty fun too, especially mid to late-game where you'll have unlocked many moves and gadgets to spice it up. The map of NYC is filled with collectibles, some of them fantastically well-designed, some not so much. Insomniac went the bold route of making an entirely original story with the characters and setting of Spider-Man. Just follow the story of the movies and comics would've made the game less special and more predictable. I was pleasantly surprised by the cast of characters and villains.

3. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Let me get this out of the way: Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is absolutely fantastic. While it is a lot shorter than Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered (only 16 hours), but in a lot of ways, this game is better.

One of the first things I noticed is how much better this game looks when comparing it to the first game. I'm not sure if it has advanced much on a technical level, or if it's purely an art direction thing, but this game definitely looks better. I found myself constantly pausing to open the photo mode and take screenshots, something I rarely did in the first game. Mission areas and enemies are often filled with vibrant colors and the landscape is dusted with beautiful, white, snow. I especially like how the game has snow actively falling, which makes everything look very pretty.

Miles' adventure is a worthy expansion of the original.

Many of the upgrades that you needed to unlock in the first game you just start with in this game, which is really nice. This game does have fewer gadgets and upgrades, but pretty much all of them are new to this game and a lot of them are really cool and fun to play with. I do miss the web grenade from the first game though.

While the story is shorter, it wastes no point getting to the action. The story was consistently good, had some really cool areas, and some awesome boss fights.

4. Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

This is exactly what a Guardians of the Galaxy - and, frankly, a Marvel - game should be.

The game is fairly action packed.


Linear in structure and yet feels modern in design - it feels like if Mass Effect were reimagined in 2021 and stripped of its RPG elements, every single design decision based around "is this fun?". In 2021, a game being wholly linear, with no side quests, no open world, somehow feels like a brave decision. It feels like a throwback to 10-15 years ago. But it feels like a breath of fresh air with so many expansive open worlds to explore for a game to limit itself like that. Just because you can't *literally* get lost in this world, doesn't mean it doesn't feel like you could. If anything, the writing and world-building is all the stronger for not being able to rely on that.

Graphically, it looks great, the cinematography and animations are excellent (as ever from Eidos/Crystal) and it runs well - around 100-120 FPS at max on a system hitting the recommended requirements. And it's super stable so far, unlike the Avengers game which seems to crash every 20 minutes for me.

5. Injustice 2

Netherrealm Studios, with Injustice 2, has broken all these repetitive equations of fighting games. the game, whose rich content ranges from a variety of modes to a number of very interesting and detailed characters, has made Injustice 2 one of the Best fighting games of recent years.

The first good thing about the game's combat system is that it's not hard to learn the combos, and you can quickly learn the basics; Even if this is your first time playing a fighting game. But don't forget that you need strong training and nerves to perform all the combos correctly, defend and implement special moves; Just like in any other fighting game. Of course, in this game, you can also close your eyes and use all 10 fingers to press all the controller buttons and watch movements that can't be performed even in your sleep, but it's not going to be easy and comfortable doing the right moves and defenses on time.

Along with the story section, the game still has features that will keep you playing for a longer period of time. One of the most interesting game modes for those who like to play alone is called Multiverse mode. Multiverse mode has a short story that confronts you with many Earths. In all these worlds, there are Batman, Superman, and Joker, some of them are looking for peace in the world, and others are trying to disturb the peace. The gameplay is similar to Mortal Kombat's Living Tower. Instead of multi-maps, there are buildings where you see a bunch of different heroes that you have to stand up to.

6. Batman - The Telltale Series

Telltale Games brings a new way of looking at one of the greatest successes in the comics industry - Batman. He fits seamlessly in the Telltale format. A bit of QTE-action, with high-speed scenes at times. It's quite daring to tell a story about a superhero that we all know very well and has several iterations of films and series published with praise.


The gameplay here is pretty much what you would expect from Telltale with a little bit more of an emphasis on action. You're Batman here and you're kicking bad guys, you know, but the real deal of the game here comes down to 2 things: being a detective and being Bruce Wayne. I was surprised by the emphasis on being a detective here in this game, but it's pretty refreshing as a hardcore Batman fan. I admit it's pretty cool and it works very well. I just like playing Batman, walking around, looking at clues, and figuring things out. It's nice!

This game exceeded my expectations and I'm more than satisfied. There is pretty much everything - friendship, romance, treachery, character development, and new features. This game showed me a side of Gotham City and the Wayne family I've never seen before.
