Here's a nerdy thing you might enjoy ...

I came across a couple of articles today that looked that the history of Batman and Superman, respectively, in video game form. Wow. I mean, I knew about some of these, because I've been alive long enough to experience them for myself, but there were so many for each character that I had no idea about.




For example, as you read "The Evolution of Batman in Gaming: From Isometric Puzzlers to Open-World Adventures", you will see the amount of interest in the character. I mean, they have been putting out Batman games for years. You will see that most have not been very good, but as is usually the case, some have their cult followings. Naturally, they call out the Rocksteady renaissance start in 2009, and I couldn't agree with it more.

Then you have the article "The Evolution of Superman in Gaming: A Tumultuous Path for the Man of Steel" Now, I haven't played a Superman game since the first one on this list, the Atari 2600 game called Superman. Honestly, I have just never been that interested in a Superman themed game. It could be the poor quality seen to date in all of the games, or just the flatness of the character.

Anyway - I had some fun reading up on these, and wanted to share them with you in case it is something that would interest you too.
