Batman Arkham Asylum 2

At the recent Spike TV Video Game Awards developer Rocksteady Studios showed off a trailer for their upcoming sequel to Batman Arkham Asylum. The original Arkham Asylum got great reviews for staying loyal to the dark and gritty Batman roots, also the game was actually fun to play(a rare for most comic book games). It's a huge task when a company takes a franchise like Batman and turns it into something fresh. Rocksteady did this by creating an atmosphere that sucked in the players and actually made them feel like they were controlling Batman. The sequel should be no disappointment. The game has no release date set and will appear on both the PS3 and Xbox 360.

P.S - The voice of The Joker is actually Mark Hamill who played Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars movies. For anyone who grew up on the 90's Batman cartoon, he also voiced The Joker in that series.
