There’s something about superheroes that just suits the gaming community perfectly. Games about superheroes of any kind are generally pretty excellent and exciting to play. Whether you have a favorite superhero or you just love the action of the superhero genre in general, there’s a video game out there for you to enjoy. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the top five best games for those of us who love superheroes of all shapes and sizes.
All About The MCU
If you love everything about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Marvel’s Avengers game from Crystal Dynamics will suit you perfectly. This game has plenty of cheesy one-liners to keep you entertained and nonstop action to get you in the Avengers mood. If you’ve ever wanted to just dive straight into one of the MCU films and jump into the battle, this is the game for you.
To Get Your Spidey Senses Tingling
If Peter Parker is your personal hero, Spider-Man from Insomniac Games will get your spidey senses tingling. You’ll get to test out your spidery skills as you dive headfirst into the action of Spider-Man and the life of Peter Parker. If you’ve been looking for a Spider-Man game that starts out beyond the origin story, this is the perfect one for you. With web shooting, spidey sense game design, and lots of action, this is a great addition to the world of Spider-Man and superhero games.

Get A Bit Batty
If you prefer a more gothic superhero, you can’t go wrong with Batman: Arkham Asylum from Rocksteady Studios. This is one of the best Batman games in existence. It chronicles a night in the Asylum with the Joker doing everything he can to torture Batman. Be warned: this isn’t for the faint hearted, and it’s got some decidedly mature content, but if you’re looking for a dark adventure into the world of Batman, this is the game for you.
Make Your Bet On The Dead Pool
For those of you who just want snarky, over the top action, Deadpool from Activision will give you your Wade Wilson fix. Deadpool certainly isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. If you weren’t a fan of the graphic, raunchy, and crude jokes in the films, take my word for it, you won’t like this game. However, if the standard Deadpool humor and level of manners is something you enjoy, this game will give you everything you want in your Deadpool adventure.
Crazy For Legos
And if you just like anything Lego related (no judgement, Legos are the best), the Lego Marvel Super Heroes game from Traveller’s Tales will transport you into the Lego world with all your favorite super heroes. The combination of Marvel characters and amazing Legographics make this game a delightful way to step into the superhero world and live out your life in the style of Legodesigns.
