I’ll readily admit that I don’t always make the best choices. I’ll usually pick Doritos over carrot sticks; I’ve bought pairs of shoes that barely saw the light of day before being sent to Goodwill; and maybe I shouldn’t have picked up Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull and Pineapple Express on BluRay. I also should have played Batman: Arkham Asylum when I had the chance back in 2009. But, being headlong into other game addictions at that time, I paid the game little mind. Sure, I watched my husband play several levels and thought “detective mode” was mildly interesting, but it didn’t strike me as a game that I wanted to play. My relationship with Batman had only gone as far as the campy TV series and recent movies, and I was fine with that.
Or so I thought.
